Mission and Goals
This programme offers a synthesis of the fundamental and most advanced civil engineering tools for Risk Management, integrated by competences in different areas (land use planning, economics and finance, communication, law, psychology). Graduates in C.E.R.M. deal with the design of structures and of infrastructures, with planning, control and management of town and of land systems, and they are able to evaluate the environmental impact of structures and of infrastructures. The programme is taught in English. For more information: www.master-cerm.polimi.it
Students holding a Bachelor Degree in Engineering, Architecture or Land Use Planning are eligible for application.
In the first year the following topics are proposed:
- Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations
- Soil-Structure Interaction
- Tools for Risk Management
- Flood Risk
- Structural Analysis
- Fundamentals of Gis
In the second year students choose three thematic modules among the followings: Engineering Structures for the Environment; Geo-Engineering Techniques for Unstable Slopes; Emergency Plans for Hydro-Geological Risk; Structure Retrofitting for Seismic and Exceptional Loads; Transport management in emergency planning; Hazards from Industrial Sites: Process Analysis and Risk Assessment.
The final project is devoted to the solution of a field case.
The graduate in Civil Engineering for Risk Mitigation deals with the design of structures and infrastructures, planning, control and management of town and land systems, evaluation of the environmental impact of structures and infrastructures as well as research in public and private institutes. He/she can therefore find employment with construction companies, design and consultancy companies and has access to Public Administration offices.
