UCL (University College London)
Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management
The programme combines specialist earthquake engineering knowledge with an understanding of the social, economic and political impact of earthquake events in order to produce engineers who can provides holistic design solutions and are able to work in both engineering and disaster management roles.
A minimum of a 2nd Class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard; extensive work experience covering related areas are considered in addition to academic qualifications.
Compulsory modules: Engineering seismology and earthquake geotechnics; structural dynamics; disaster risk reduction; introduction to seismic design of structures; advanced seismic design structures; seismic risk assessment; seismic loss mitigation and strengthening of low-engineered buildings. Options: Advanced structural analysis; earthquake seismology and earthquake hazard; finite element modelling and numerical methods; natural and environmental disasters; integrating science into risk and disaster reduction.
Taught modules have been developed and are delivered in collaboration with experts from industry and non-governmental organisations. In addition a field trip is organised every year to an earthquake affected region.
