Studying infrastructure resilience

For those interested in studying infrastructure-related resilience, we share here the output of desk-based research carried out into selected further education opportunities world-wide. This list was last updated in May 2020.

For each institution we have listed:

  • Undergraduate resilience courses for prospective students
  • Postgraduate resilience courses for further study
  • Relevant programmes from university research departments illustrating the institution’s wider resilience credentials.

More information will be added to this resource as it is collected, and we welcome external contributions and input on course details and developments, including new or overlooked courses for consideration on inclusion. Email us at info@resilienceshift.org.

The following should not be taken as a comprehensive or definitive list of resilience-related infrastructure courses. It is a starting point for a resource of resilience-related infrastructure education specialisations, departments and courses throughout the globe. We intend to develop this resource to identify and connect resilience expertise, research and practice in universities and to facilitate cooperation and sharing between them, contributing to the total global resilience knowledge base.

Unless specified, the Resilience Shift is not affiliated with any of the listed institutions, nor does it endorse one course or institution over the others. The user is encouraged to explore these are other universities in further detail.
