Several training courses including a MOOC!

Several natural and technological risk management courses are available at Grenoble INP - Ense3. The Hydraulics, Structures and Environment (HOE) programme trains future engineers to design, build and manage civil engineering structures in the aim of guaranteeing the availability and quality of water and preventing the risks of flooding and drought. The course module “Natural risks and climate change” offers an overall view of the problem of natural risks and the effects that climate change has on structural stability (in particular related with the transition between unsaturated and saturated soil). Two of the topics addressed in this module are earthquake and gravitational risks. A research Master’s programme in English, jointly approved by the UJF (GCER), allows students to enrich their knowledge in the mechanics of geomaterials (soils, rocks, concrete), the mechanics of solids and structures, geotechnics, sol-structure interaction and natural risks. Finally, since November 2014, Grenoble INP has also been offering the MOOC* entitled “Rivers and men”. This MOOC is coordinated by Grenoble INP and stems from the work of seven experts. It offers robust methods and techniques that can be used in the North as well as in the South for sustainable management of rivers and risks.
