The international PhD program in Structural and Environmental Health Monitoring and Management (SEHM2) is designed for outstanding students targeting  academic or corporate interdisciplinary research, at top level labs or protection and safety institutions.

This program provides methodological and technological skills aimed at monitoring structures, infrastructures and the environment, and assess, mitigate and manage natural and human induced risks. This course is a response to the increasing demand from the society and from the scientific and professional communities for innovative approaches and new skills to ensure environmental safety, with particular reference to the European context. Relevant examples are (a) health monitoring of civil and industrial structures and infrastructures, (b) performance monitoring of networks (gas, water, electric, telephone, road, rail, etc.), (c) monitoring and managing air and hydrogeological systems. These activities can benefit from the convergence of emerging methods and technologies addressed by this new PhD program.

PhD students in Structural and Environmental Health Monitoring and Management gain specific expertise in models, algorithms, components, architectures and operating principles of the sensing technologies and build up a unique background in infrastructures and environment management and related European regulations.

This year the University of Bologna invites strongly motivated persons to submit abstract for innovative contributions to theoretical or experimental research in SEHM2 related areas:

1.      Numerical and data driven modeling of large infrastructures, plants and hydrogeological systems;

2.      Heterogeneous sensor networks to convey information from the physical world to the cloud;

3.      Data analysis and safety assessment;

4.      Strategies for prognostic and long term management.
