Course content

The Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management MSc 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 deliver holistic design solutions and are able to work in both engineering and disaster management roles.

UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering hosts EPICentre, a leading research centre in earthquake engineering, and provides an exciting environment in which to explore this new, multidisciplinary and constantly evolving science.

The programme has extensive links to industry through professional engineers and disaster managers who deliver lectures and seminars and support students on their research projects as industrial supervisors.

Students benefit from a voluntary field trip to the closest location of a recent major earthquake to study disaster management and the effects of the earthquake on the built environment, structural strengthening techniques and disaster management.
