Overview of the Program
The Master Course will cover the interdisciplinary approach to complex problems of environmental risk assessment and mitigation on Cultural Heritage assets both from a theoretical and practical point of view.
Curriculum of the master program was developed in the frame work of ERAMCA EU ERASMUS+ project (https://eramca.com/) which considers real needs, knowledge and expertise for restoration and conservation of historical monuments of Central Asian Countries.
The overall pedagogical approach is to set up with an outline of innovative learning schemes, including e-learning and learning by doing.
In this program, students will learn main aspects and skills in the field of geomatics, seismic engineering, hydrogeology, restoration and geotechnics, which will later on be applied to develop best practice in order to design restoration and conservation strategies for historical monuments.
The Master Course’s teaching methodology is incorporated into the general structure of the course and enables students to continue their education for PhD study programs either in European, national or international institutions.
Furthermore, due to the wide-ranging field incorporated into the proposed course, it offers an easy approach to variety of specific research topics or job placement opportunities.
The two-year Master Course is divided into four semesters (two years). The overall number of 120 ECTS credits is assigned for Master Course and is divided into 30 ECTS per semester (60 ECTS per year). The number of credits per subject is in general 6 ECTS as in many European countries. See the curriculum of the master course.
First-year students are provided with theoretical backgrounds on different disciplines with basic training to learn the use of software and instruments.
Second-year students are involved in the analysis and data collection from specific case studies where they can elaborate the idea for the final thesis.
The 4th semester is comprised with the research (laboratory or field work), oriented Master’s thesis writing and submission (research-based learning) of total 20 ECTS.
