Growing population, sprawling settlements and global environmental change have considerably increased the exposure of society to natural disasters, endangering human lives, properties and natural values. In both developing and developed countries experts are needed to predict, prevent, mitigate and manage these natural hazards and disasters. The aim of the Environmental Risk and Hazard (R&H) Management Master Programme is to provide a sound professional competence in:
- the theory and scientific methods of R&H management;
- data acquisition and processing, modelling in natural systems
- visualisation and communication of risks and hazards towards the society.
We offer an MSc Programme which has a unique structure focusing on in-depth understanding risks and hazards, and on different ways of their management. After the successful completion of the programme students will have a wide choice of challenging and rewarding carriers at industrial or insurance companies, environmental agencies, governmental organisations and at research institutions.
