Aceh earthquake and tsunami, on December 26, 2004, was the biggest disaster - in its scale and impact - in this century. After the incident, it seemed like various other disasters took place all over the world. The high level of the vulnerability requires us to become a resilient nation against disasters. Every country needs to mobilize its resources in anticipating future events, reducing casualties and potential losses, and effectively restoring post-disaster conditions for the sustainability of national development. One crucial resource is the capacity of disaster science and technology.

Utilizing the capacity of science and technology in disaster risk reduction is also a mandate of the global framework of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015-2030 and Law 24/2007 on Disaster Management. The role of science and technology needs ranging from understanding the dynamics of the threat, victim reduction, capacity building, to the formulation of policy. In this context, the role of universities becomes very central. Moreover, in disaster-prone areas, the university is the spearhead of the development and application of science and technology while at the same time giving birth to capable human resources to deal with various potential threats....

Become a professional disaster risk management specialist

The Master of Disaster Management provides humanitarian professionals with solid interdisciplinary knowledge and skills that meet the needs of modern emergency management and disaster response.

Experience from recent major disasters, changes in the humanitarian field, the changing nature of a conflict, and climate change impact all have made it clear that a holistic approach to disasters and crisis management is needed to substantially reduce losses and deal with new challenges the current system seems ill-equipped to respond to.

A coherent and holistic approach to disaster risk management is not without challenges. The decision has to be based on a politically, economically, socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable foundation and rooted in sound development policies. Risk reduction needs to underpin and guide decisions in Preparedness, Response and Recovery planning, and programmes. Professionals with an adequate knowledge base and the right skills are invaluable if these challenges are to be met.... [-]

As happens in the business world, innovation is an essential tool to improve the competitiveness of organizations and people. In this sense, in 2013 we decided that it was necessary after a decade teaching the Master in Systems Management, since 2007 as a University Master, adapting the structure of the title to the changes and needs that were being generated both in companies and in the profile of the graduates who enrolled in the master's degree.

As a result of this reflection, the new Double Master degree was created, promoted by the Metalworking, Furniture, Wood, Packaging and Afinex Technological Institute - AIDIMME and the Catholic University of Valencia - UCV. Degree consisting of two degrees that cover, on the one hand, integrated systems management and, on the other, the training of professionals for the exercise as senior technicians in occupational risk prevention. Divide the title that gives rise to the Double Master in these two areas, has allowed us to provide greater degree of specialization to students who take the double degree and more opportunities in the field of business practices....

Master in Integrated: Environment, Quality and Prevention

&nbsp

In the competitive environment in which we are moving, organizations must manage their daily activities effectively. For this reason, demand management models that can be used as tools for this task. Until now, companies have addressed the problem by opting for the implementation of separate management systems based on models more or less standardized.

It is a fact that the evolution of different versions of the standards of quality, environment and risk prevention, converge towards a single integrated system. The first step was taken on ISO 19011:2002 audits, which serves both to the field of environmental quality. Subsequently, the appearance of OHSAS 18001:2007 and, more recently, ISO 9001:2008, have confirmed this trend. ... [-]
