The Doctoral Program InfraRisk- is focused on the following main research domains within civil engineering: (i) Conduct hazard assessment; (ii) Perform vulnerability analysis of the several infrastructures, including the interdependence effects; (iii) Propose and prioritize solutions and techniques for the strengthening and rehabilitation of infrastructures; (iv) Contribute to define prevention and preparedness policies and measures aiming at the enhancement of socio-economic resilience.
The Doctoral Program in Analysis and Mitigation of Risks in Infrastructures involves a partnership between four universities - University of Lisbon - Técnico Lisboa (IST), University of Porto - Faculty of Engineering (FEUP), University of Minho (UMinho) and University of Aveiro (UA) - the National Laboratory of Civil Engineering (LNEC) and ICIST (Instituto de Engenharia de Estruturas, Território e Construção). The degree attributed to the candidates will be a PhD degree in Civil Engineering from one of the partner higher education institutions.
