Disaster Preparedness Mitigation and Management – recent intense occurrences of disasters all over the earth leading to massive loss of life and destruction of infrastructure have grabbed the attention of the world. Receiving less attention is disaster risk management – the know-how to prepare for such disasters and to reduce their effects. The academicians and practitioners at AIT, and its partner institutions are determined to contribute more toward bringing this know-how to disaster managers and engineers. The aim of this academic program is to instill the necessary interdisciplinary capacities to manage and minimize the effects of disasters in people on the front lines of disaster response and applicants with engineering, architecture, natural and social science, as well as management backgrounds.
