Masters in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology
Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Feb 28, 2019 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Objective The main goal of this Master course is to provide a multidisciplinary training in earthquake engineering and engineering seismology which also includes newly emerging fields in seismic risk mitigation and management.Course duration One and a half years (90 ECTS)Brief DescriptionThe cross-cutting nature of the programme allows students to develop skills which will allow them to communicate across the wide range of fields which comprise the area of seismic risk assessment and mitigation.Students can choose between a Master in Earthquake Engineering, a Master in Engineering Seismology or a Master in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology. The curriculum of the course includes engineering seismology, geomechanics, geotechnics and soil dynamics, structural dynamics, seismic design and assessment and seismic risk mitigation. An entire semester will be dedicated to the Master Project which might be period of research (leading to a traditional Master dissertation) or a placement in industry (such as a design office, or a risk consultancy office).Associated professional partners provide placements for the Master Project and may eventually offer employment to the Masters in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology graduates. An international experienceA number of EU-funded scholarships are offered to the best qualified candidates.Career prospects An external advisory board, including associated professional partners as well as key academic and professional figures monitors the curriculum of the programme, provide guidelines for complementary skills to aid the employability of graduates, and share best practice with the consortium. DiplomaAll participating institutions are joint degree-awarding. Students must spend at least one full semester (worth 30 ECTS) in two participating organisations to obtain a joint degree.Website:
