The main purpose of the Risk Management in Civil Engineering Advanced Course is to disseminate the knowledge on risk management applied to various fields of civil engineering, in order to promote the development of the Portuguese scientific and technologic research in the field.
The lecturers are renowned experts in different risk domains at the international level. The Course provides a forum for the academic and practice exchange of information and knowledge in civil engineering risk management.
The program focusses in three major areas:
- Mathematical fundamentals of civil engineering risk management;
- Risk management process applied to civil engineering, including risk identification, analysis, evaluation, perception and mitigation strategies;
- Case studies on risk management applied to structures, transports, tunnels and coastal erosion.
