Focusing on the major issues of disaster resilience and risk reduction, the MDisMgt equips you with the applicable skills to confidently solve complex problems in high pressure environments.
We implement a holistic approach to disaster management, and provide the knowledge needed to plan frameworks, create policies, and device solutions. A compulsory component of this programme is a research project, where you will demonstrate the critical thinking and analytical skills needed to independently approach a real-world issue in a disaster setting.
This programme draws on expertise from across the University. Beyond the Faculty of Engineering’s world-class academic roster, you’ll be able to learn from experts from Science, Architecture and Planning, Development Studies and Environmental Law. Our students come from a broad range of disciplines – though they vary in experience, they share a common goal to help communities prepare for, and recover from, natural disasters.
