The Institute of Rescue Engineering and Civil Protection deals with all of the technical and organizational elements in operative civil protection to provide rescue for people, as well as with elements to recognize hazards and protect against them, such as regulatory and occupational risk and crisis management as well as social and methodical competences for leaders and managers.
Civil protection and security entail a wide range of disciplines and the institute especially focuses on prevention and operative emergency response.
There are many technical, medical, and organizational tasks required in the area of non-police aversion of danger in prevention and operative emergency response and security technology. At the same time, the requirements for quality and cost-effectiveness are rising steadily. Due to financial constraints and critical resources, corresponding solutions have to be efficient.
Disciplines in Civil Protection and Security:
1. Operative Civil Protection
(Firefighting, Rescue Services, Technical Aid and Catastrophe Protection)
2 Preventive Civil Protection
(Fire Protection, Environmental and Civil Protection, Management System)
3. Safety Technology
(Plant and Process Safety, Machine Safety, Worker Protection)
Increasing complexity, financial constraints, and time sensitive problems require interdisciplinary and comprehensive education and training for emergency responders. We meet these requirements through our research and teaching activities.
