Course Summary

The Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management MSc combines specialist structural and earthquake engineering knowledge with an advanced understanding of resilience and risk modelling for natural hazards. The programme is designed to produce engineers who are able to work in the civil and structural engineering sector, as well as taking roles in risk and catastrophe modelling or disaster management. Graduates of Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management MSc will be able to: Analyse, Design and Assess structures to current seismic codes, as well as modern unconventional methods. Evaluate Vulnerability and Resilience of ordinary and special structures against earthquake and extreme loading conditions. Determine the efficiency and economic viability of pre-disaster risk mitigation and post-disaster risk management solutions.


There is an excellent employment prospects for our graduates. Students graduate with strong structural and geotechnical engineering skills and rarely taught knowledge of risk assessment and disaster management. Making them ideal to take roles in consultancies, construction companies, insurance industry, disaster management and relief sector, as well as government departments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).


You will be a new type of global engineer, able to tackle challenges in any area that require knowledge and understanding of structural and geotechnical engineering, risk assessment and disaster management.
