This programme of study focuses on the assessment of risk caused by floods, avalanches and landslides to new and existing structures and infrastructures, and on the structural and non-structural measures which can be envisaged for its mitigation.
Compulsory and elective courses are offered on a number of core subjects including hydrology, fluvial hydraulics and hydromorphology, hydraulic infrastructures, snow avalanches and landslide hazards, risk and emergency legislation, earth surface and processes. The study of these topics is preceded by a number of propaedeutic courses, which encompasses numerical analysis, probability and statistics, continuum mechanics, geomatics and geology.
