PhD Students 2015

PhD Students 2014

The workshop promoted interaction, discussion of future development amongst participants, colleagues and academic staff from the Board of Studies (BoS) to PhD Supervisors.

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.
