Politecnico di Milano offers two different programmes on Risk Management: a Master of Science Programme and a Specializing Master Programme. Both Master programmes are designed to provide knowledge and expertise in the field of structural and non-structural measures for the mitigation of natural and technological hazards. All components of Risk Management are considered: assessment of hazard, exposure and vulnerability; structural and non structural tools for mitigation; emergency planning and management. Although the courses are centred on the Civil Engineering culture, a wide variety of different disciplines is included, comprehending various engineering branches, land use planning, natural science, economy and social sciences.
Programme Scope and Teaching Approach
A comprehensive approach to the management of natural and technological risks requires a wide variety of competences, many of which are well grounded in engineering disciplines (civil, environmental, chemical, electronic and information technology). This Master programme offers a combination of fundamental and advanced engineering tools for Risk Management, integrated with competences in different areas (land planning, economics, finance, communication, law, psychology, medicine, etc.).
The CERM programme comprises a total from 60 up to 120 ECTS credits over one-year or two-year courses. Two distinct didactic projects are proposed.
Specializing Master / 1-year Master courses (Master Universitario) 60 ECTS
Master of Science (MSc) / 2-years Master courses (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Civile) 120 ECT
Teaching is organised along three conceptual axes:
1. modelling tools are needed for sound analyses of the processes involved;
2. the complexity of the problem requires skills characterised by a strong interdisciplinary vision;
3. the combination of different disciplines is allowed by a problem solving approach.
This multidimensional programme will form professionals who are able to shear and interface specific competences within a team of experts dealing with the complexity of environmental risks assessment and mitigation, as well as emergency management.
The 1- year Specializing Master is open to a relatively wide variety of scientific and technical curricula, as well as to graduates with a few years of working experience in the field of Risk Management, who wish to enhance their portfolio of professional skills within an international educational environment.
The 2- year Master of Science is typically intended for students holding a Bachelor Degree in Engineering, Architecture or Land Use Planning.
