Contents

The M.Sc. in Engineering for Natural Risk Management aims to train professionals capable of working in all sectors of safety and civil protection, both public and private, at national and international level. Thanks to its multidisciplinary nature, the program will provide the skills to coordinate the activities of a complex system such as civil protection.

With this in mind, the MSc graduate profile is not strictly specialized on a single technical area related to civil protection but oriented to the management and coordination of the whole system and its operations, in cooperation with specialists and technicians.

This multidisciplinary approach is reflected in the topics of the courses offered, largely devoted not only to disciplines strictly related to natural hazards (hydrology, hydraulics, geology, etc.) but also to information and communication technologies (ICT), in the belief that the latter is an essential support for the effectiveness and efficiency of a modern system of civil

protection. Issues associated with the legal, medical and communication aspects involved in risk management are also covered by the program, thanks to the optional courses offered.

The courses are fully taught in English. The fourth semester is mainly devoted to internships and thesis work to facilitate international exchanges and contacts with the labor market.

The University offers the students a solid cultural and scientific education and gives them many instruments to face the professional future. It offers real possibilities of integration between theory and practice, also through stages with institutions and companies and training periods abroad. There are many different forms of collaboration and cooperation with foreign Universities and Institutions that allow a high mobility of professors and students from and towards foreign countries. At the moment, with more than 3,000 foreign students, the University went over the 8% mark of the total amount of registered students, establishing even more - and unlike the national data - its position as a point of attraction for the students that choose Italy for their University studies.
