Master Degree in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology

The Masters degree in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology of the ROSE Programme is jointly awarded by the Institute for Advanced Study of Pavia (IUSS) and the Università degli Studi di Pavia.

During the 18-month programme students will acquire the ability to design, execute and evaluate assessments of seismic hazard for site-specific engineering projects as well as to undertake seismic design of new structures and the assessment and strengthening of existing structures.

The ROSE Masters degree require a minimum of 90 credits to be obtained, with no more than one dissertation. This effectively means that the student must earn at least 60 credits through courses and 30 credits through a master thesis.

The typical organization of the study consists in two semesters where the student follows courses earning 30 credits per semester. Afterwards, the third semester is devoted to the production of the master thesis of technically high standards for which 30 credits are awarded. The thesis can be produced either through original research work or through a professional internship.

The courses that have been offered at the School to date and upcoming courses for the next academic year can be viewed on the Taught Modules page, which the lecturers of the School are available on the Teaching Body page.
