Organisation profile

International Master Program on Natural Hazards Mitigation and Management (iNHMM) is an all-English master degree program which focuses on learning of causes of natural disasters and their preventions. Our goal is to promote the awareness of risk management and preparedness of civic defense, and further achieve the higher goal of corresponding education. Due to climate change, natural disasters occur around the world with an even stronger strength and at higher frequency. The damages of lives and properties become an eminent issue that cannot be ignored. To better cope with this situation, a strong background of inter-disciplined training and knowledge is necessary to prevent, prepare, and recover all the events related to the natural hazards. iNHMM program combines the teaching force from Dept. of Hydraulic and Ocean Engineering, Dept. of Civil Engineering, Dept. of Geomatics, Dept. of Economics, Dept. of Political Science, Dept. of Environmental Engineering, and NCKU Disaster Prevention Research Center. In order to give students practical knowledge, we also recruit adjunct faculty from Kyoto University, National Science and Technology Center for Disaster Reduction, APEC Research Center for Typhoon and Society and Taiwan Typhoon and Soil and Water Conservation Bureau.
