REM Programmes

The Masters and PhD Programmes in Risk and Emergency Management (REM) aim to train graduates and professionals in the assessment, mitigation and management of extreme events (both before and after they occur), with a particular focus on those arising from natural hazards though some aspects of human-made, technological and biomedical risk will also be covered.

The unique characteristics of the programme include the broad, interdisciplinary curriculum that includes topics of statistics and probability, law, economics, resource management, natural hazards and risk, finance, insurance, sociology, communication, psychology, public health and medicine, and the innovative teaching structure which allows renowned lecturers from around the world to make up the teaching body. Furthermore, the programme is signing cooperation agreements with a number of international partner organisations that will host the Masters candidates for their internship and the PhD candidates in research collaboration periods.
