Degree Programs

The Integrated Emergency Management program builds national resilience capacities through courses on standard practices, procedures and technologies to collect information, conduct risk assessment, and develop effective plans for emergency management, response, leadership, relief, and recovery. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, simulation exercises, and applied real-world scenarios, students learn team organisation, professional ethics, interagency operations, and resilience through the core principles of contemporary relevance, integration, cooperation, multi-agency coordination, and interoperability.
