Master of Technology [2015-2017] Disaster Mitigation And Management


Human resource development for disaster mitigation and management to protect the people, environment

and economy and ensure a disaster resilient society through education, research and development.

The vision of COEDMM is to emerge as a Premier

Centre for Disaster Mitigation and Risk Management for sustainable habitat.

’ I am pleased to invite you for the placements of M.Tech batch 2015-17 at the Centre of Excellence in Disaster Mitigation and

Management (CoEDMM), IIT Roorkee. We at CoEDMM, IIT Roorkee have equipped our students with skills and information towards disaster risk reduction by effective evaluation and effi-cacious management. The students with their multi-disciplinary background will be able to put their experiences into practice and constructively contribute to the field of Disaster Mitigation and Management. IIT Roorkee is the only premier institute in India to run an excellence awarded course of Disaster Mitigation and Management since 2012. The two year M.Tech programme with specialization in Disaster Mitigation and Management has been designed in such a

fashion that it yields a skill set that has optimal compatibility with the competency set anticipating employers. In addition to academics, CoEDMM encourages a wide variety of co-curricular activities such as competitions, conferences and field visits managed by the students with support from associated faculty members. I am delighted to present the current batch (2015-17) of CoEDMM M.Tech students for placements. I am sure that our well groomed professionals will give you diverse options for your esteemed organization.

“Training proves to be the key ingredient to handling any disaster.� -Walter Maddox

Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, since it’s establishment is among the leading Institute of national importance for engineering, higher technological education, basic and applied research. The institute ranks among the best technological institutions in the world and has contributed to wide number of technological developments. The institute will be completing 170 years of existence in October 2016. On September 21 2001 an Ordinance issued by the government of India declared it as the nation’s seventh Indian Institute of Technology.

The institute offers bachelor's degree courses in 10 disciplines of engineering and architecture and Postgraduate’s degree in 55 disciplines of Engineering applied science architecture and planning. The institute admits students to B.Tech and B.Arch courses through the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) conducted all over India and to programs through Graduate Aptitude Test in engineering (GATE), Masters in Business Administration (MBA), Masters in Computer Application (MCA) and Masters in Science (MSc) programs through Common Admission Test (CAT).

Centre of

Excellence in Disaster Mitigation and Management, under the

patronage of IIT Roorkee, was established in March 2006, with the sole purpose of conducting educational program, facilitation cutting edge research and training on disasters, vulnerability and their mitigation. In 2012, the center launched the nations very first Post-graduate studies in the area of Disaster Mitigation and Management. A two year long Masters Program (M.Tech), prides itself of encompassing the intricate details of almost every disaster our nation faces. Manifesting its incredible brilliance by proposing to create a National Database for rapid

dissemination of information and

knowledge, the Centre aims to serve the most integral need of the nations in time of a disaster. Speaking of dexterity, the Centre boasts of a multi disciplinary research and educational arena. The priory mingles the greymatter of Architects, Mechanical Engineers, Civil Engineers and Computer Engineers. Apart from looking into the social aspects of a disaster, be it natural on manmade, the trainees are nurtured and prepped to bring forth innovative technologies for effective mitigation and unprecedented management skills to maneuver disasters for overall benefit of the society.
