Fostering talent to shape a sustainable future

The MSc environmental hazards and risks management provides skills in risk management, and more particularly in risk modeling, to better predict and manage environmental hazards and risks. The program combines recent research with GIS and remote sensing technologies to train a generation of thinkers capable of anticipating and mitigating a wide range of natural hazards in a multi-disciplinary approach. On completion of the degree, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of risk management components such as: planning, mitigation, monitoring, scenario modeling and warning systems.

The Nice Côte d’Azur area provides a multitude of field sites that can be investigated to discover monitoring and mitigation strategies that are applicable throughout the world. In addition, there is a wide range of digital data available such as high resolution aerial and satellite imagery, Digital Elevation Models, and raster and vector GIS databases describing land cover, building units, vegetation and stream networks. The context is therefore propitious to modeling hazards and risks both spatially and temporally using GIS and remote sensing.
