At Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) we offer a master degree in Geotechnics and Geohazards. Geohazards include landslides, rockslides, avalanches, earthquakes and tsunamis. Many lives could be saved and enormous destruction avoided if people knew more about geohazards forecasting and prevention.
- Within geotechnics, there has been a shortage of new candidates on the market for several years now.
