Erasmus Mundus master's degree in Flood Risk Management

Barcelona School of Civil Engineering (ETSECCPB)

Erasmus Mundus master's degree in Flood Risk Management, coordinated by the UNESCO-IHE (Institute for Water Education) and with the UPC as a participant, provides an integrated approach to flood risk management that seeks to reduce human and socioeconomic losses caused by flooding. The need to adopt an integrated, holistic approach to flood risk management is reflected in Directive 2007/60/CE (RD 903/2010 of 9 July, on flood risk assessment and management). To date, European programmes have dealt with a variety of technical aspects but failed to propose integrated management; in this respect, the Erasmus Mundus master's degree in Flood Risk Management constitutes a breakthrough in hydraulics training in Europe.

It is offered by a consortium of institutions: the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education (the Netherlands), the Technical University of Dresden (Germany), the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and the UPC.
