We have concentrated all our educational activities in the Resilience Academy. The Academy will consolidate courses, training modules, summer schools and training for professionals. In addition we offer internships and research visits within 4TU to accelerate the knowledge base, methods and societal impact of Resilience Engineering.
For our on-campus education, we have various ideas to develop courses and training modules on Resilience Engineering at different levels of education. At all these levels we aim to create challenging cases for project-based learning through our strategic partnerships.
4TU RE wants to develop summer schools for PhD-students and/or (young) professionals on different aspects of Resilience Engineering. The aim is to exchange state-of-the-art knowledge, tools and methodologies on Resilience Engineering. The focus can be on one or more specific fields or application areas and/or specific societal challenges that require an interdisciplinary approach. Moreover, the summer schools provide excellent opportunities for community building and for strengthening and extending the network on Resilience Engineering.
The following summer schools have been planned:
Training for professionals
4TU RE aims to develop training modules for professional learning and development (Life Long Learning). The idea is to set up these modules in such a way that they can be combined with an extensive Resilience Engineering learning programme.
Training modules may have different forms:
- Small introductory/ awareness modules on concepts of resilience
Duration: 1 hour – half a day
These modules can, for example, be included in broader training programmes in which resilience is an important aspect or in conferences/ symposia on resilience.
- In-depth training modules on specific aspects of resilience
Duration: one - several days
These modules focus, for example, on tools to quantify/measure/monitor resilience and/or tools to apply resilience from a design perspective.
Within our SURF Project Urban Resilience we develop open and online educational resources in the field of Urban Resilience. Some of these materials are also suitable, or specifically developed, for professionals.
