Training Outline [Master's degree]

Master's degree

Through a partnership with the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) initiated in October 2005, part of the training course of the Annual Training in Seismology and Earthquake Engineering has been certified as a GRIPS lecture course. Today, each trainee can obtain a master's degree (Master of Disaster Management) certified by GRIPS and BRI if the required credits are obtained. In September 2006, all 19 participants became the first graduates under the new system. With diplomas, participants secure their complete background as specialists in seismology and earthquake engineering back in their native countries. The Tsunami Disaster Mitigation Course, introduced in 2006, is also regarded as a master's degree program.
