Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Assessment
Short or summer course
The course covers the following flood and coastal risk contexts:
- Pluvial urban floods
- Fluvial floods
- Flooding in the coastal areas in the context of climate change
- Coastal erosion risk due to sea-level rise
Modelling tools are used in cases studies applied to different locations in the world to address the following topics:
- Quantitative risk assessment frameworks and approaches.
- External and internal determinants of risk (Climate change, local land-use change, system deterioration)
- Climate change-driven Flood hazard modelling
- Climate change-driven Coastal Erosion hazard modelling
- How to convert Hazard estimates to quantitative risk assessments
- Interpretation and communication of quantified risk information
- Understanding quantified risk information
This is a hands-on course, with group work by teams of participants with technical backgrounds (e.g. engineers) and non-technical backgrounds (e.g. policymakers and managers). Each team does exercises in the context of workshops while being guided by plenary lectures.
Whether you are from a technical/engineering background or a non-technical one, you will have a meaningful learning experience in this course.

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme of study. Its aim is to facilitate the recognition of study periods undertaken by mobile students through the transfer of credits. The ECTS is based on the principle that 60 credits are equivalent to the workload of full-time student during one academic year.
