Didactic organization

Seismic safety and sustainable urban development 

II level international and inter-university Master in:

Description of the training path   

The training process is characterized by didactic activity delivered in synchronous blended e-learning mode;   basic and guided didactics (interactive and assisted),   as well as by analysis of case studies   and   development of technical drawings .

The Technical-Scientific Committee may make any changes deemed necessary to the achievement of the objectives of the Master course.

The training process cannot be suspended for any reason, under penalty of non-achievement of the Master course title.

The teaching programmes of the Master will be approved by the Technical Scientific Committee of the Master, and will be held  at each location of the Partner Universities of the HENSE SCHOOL, with the same basic elements, providing for the dissemination of the same teaching material, with the contribution of national and foreign experts.

Internships are planned, both individually and collectively, in public structures (research centres, civil protection centres, municipalities that fall within the territory where the partner universities of the HENSE SCHOOL are located) and private (companies and research centres that operate in the sector of territorial transformations, territorial and structural diagnostics and civil protection). The activities during the internship period must involve the analysis of specific case studies that will characterize the preparation of thesis.


The training course, configured on an interdisciplinary approach, is structured on 20 teaching modules, divided into six thematic areas, for which teaching hours are highlighted (including lessons, exercises, individual study), and university credits ECTS   (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System ) recognized:  



































Consistency of objectives with the didactic plan

It was assessed with reference to the outcomes of the project as a result of the execution of the planned activities, by reconstructing the logical hierarchy of the results of the proposed intervention, in terms of cause / effect.

The analysis starts from the observation that the final beneficiaries of the project constitute a plurality of subjects who act as if they were a single entity , while maintaining their independence in accordance with a principle of reciprocity , which guarantees everyone to be able to benefit from the value generated by the activities carried out:  

  • Professionals, who will acquire high levels of interdisciplinary specialization;

  • the institutional Partners of the training program who, benefiting from the scientific support of the HENSE SCHOOL Partner Universities, as well as the results of the activities carried out by the students of the Master course, will be able to adopt seismic prevention and territory safety policies , as well as economic development based on a sustainability strategy outlined during the completion of the Master's  course activities;

  • the Academic Partners, who will have the opportunity to carry out targeted validation tests of the protocols and procedures covered by the training activities;

  • the HENSE SCHOOL, which, based on the results of the activities carried out by the subjects involved in the Master's course, will promote the activation of procedures, protocols and initiatives aimed at improving the resilience of territorial systems;


In this regard, it should be noted that, with reference to the activities that will be carried out in the context of the Master's  course training path, no results can be found that may be of greater importance than the others, but all contribute to achieving actual  benefit in terms of seismic safety, which is combined with the economic development of the area.

However, the failure to achieve one of the predicted results is not expected, but only a possible different level of consistency with the expected one (higher, equal, slightly lower, ....).

It is also noted that no elements or conditions external to the project have been identified that could contribute to the achievement of the expected results, in the absence of guidelines and specific coordination outlined by the Project, which also has levels of feasibility and effectiveness consistent with the relevance of the issues addressed.

The lessons will be held, using the e-learning platform of the University of Messina, on Friday (from 13.30 to 19.30 CE Time) and on Saturday (from 9.00 to 14.00 CE Time), with the support of local teachers and tutors at a technical-scientific and organizational level.
