First, civil engineering is coupled with a systemic approach to risk assessment and management. The traditional focus on buildings and structural safety is complemented by the analysis of the many uncertainties faced in hazardous environments.

Second, information and communication technologies are proposed as fundamental tools to support Risk Management, in particular for handling emergencies.

Third, social, juridical and economical aspects are integrated into the more technical perspective, to enable future professionals to understand the wider context in which they will have to operate. The focus on integration has been embodied into an innovative teaching method that addresses problems in comprehensive modular courses.
