University of Management and Technology (UMT)
The rapid population growth, urbanization, climate change and poverty has resulted in an increased vulnerability of millions of people in the country. In order to achieve the organization-level targets under UNSDF/OPIII, the capacity building of strategic planners, and mainstreaming of Disaster Risk Reduction practices in their organizations is required. The National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) and National Flood Protection Plan IV (NFPP-IV), with a financial outlay of $3 billion, inevitably requires highly qualified Disaster Management professionals in the mid to long term.
The BS in Disaster Management program provides an opportunity to the students to acquire knowledge related to disaster management and conduct interdisciplinary research. Our faculty comprises some of the top researchers and academicians in the field of disaster management. The BS in Disaster Management program therefore provides for an unmet need for quality education in the field of disaster management, compatible with the curriculum suggested by the HEC. The program has a profound impact on the society by providing professional knowledge and skills that can help manage and subsequently reduce disaster risk. The disaster management professionals graduated from this program would be equipped with specialized skills as well as diverse knowledge with an international, regional, and local perspective.
Minimum 45 % marks in intermediate / A-Level or equivalent and no 3rd division in Matriculation. 50% Marks in NTS/UMT Entry Test. The criterion will be subject to revision as per UMT rules or specified by the regulatory body.
