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 that can provide holistic design solutions and be able to work in both engineering and disaster management roles. What and how will I learn? Graduates will be able to determine the vulnerability of ordinary and special structures to seismic actions apply both current seismic codes and novel unconventional methodologies of seismic design, repair and assessment and assess the adequacy, economic viability and life saving effectiveness of pre-event risk mitigation and post-event risk management solutions. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of seven core courses (105 credits), one optional course (15 credits) and a research project (60 credits). Core Modules Earthquake Seismology and Earthquake Hazard Structural Dynamics and Mitigation Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Seismic Design Disaster Risk Management Seismic Risk Assessment Research Methods in Civil & Environmental Engineering Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 10,000-15,000 words. Options Civil Engineering Failures and Qualitative Analysis Finite Element Modelling and Numerical Methods Further details available on subject website: http:www.cege.ucl.ac.ukteachingpostgraduateeedm The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, case studies, laboratory and computer classes, and a week-long field trip. The seminars are given by invited experts from the construction, bridge design, nuclear and re-insurance industries. Assessment is through examinations, presentations, coursework, written reports, poster presentations and the dissertation. Why should I study this degree at UCL? UCL has a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research, and is situated within the heart of one of the world's greatest cities. The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering is an exciting environment in which to explore this new, multi-disciplinary 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 field trip to the closest location of a recent major earthquake to study disaster management and the effects on the infrastructure. Your future career The programme aims to create a new type of global earthquake engineer one that is able to take a holistic approach to earthquake engineering and disaster management. Graduates of the programme will have developed the specialist skills necessary for a career in the engineering sector and other areas that require knowledge and understanding of earthquake engineering and disaster risk managementmitigation principles. The MSc is accredited by the Institute of Civil Engineers as a further learning programme that can counts towards chartership. Entry Requirements A minimum of a second-class UK Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Extensive work experience covering related areas will be considered. How to apply Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is suitable for students from a civil engineering background. It aims to impart specialist earthquake engineering skills and an understanding of disaster risk reduction methodologies for careers in the engineering sector and other areas that require a knowledge and understanding of earthquake engineering and disaster risk managementmitigation prin
