Engineering Seismology

Engineering Seismology Research

Motivation for this joint initiative led by CERI and the Department of Civil Engineering came from increasing interest from researchers and students with dual backgrounds in seismology and earthquake engineering.

Understanding ground motions produced by large earthquakes, and their effects on infrastructure systems requires a multidisciplinary approach that can combine knowledge and synthesize information from both fields.



Research interests include:

  • Probabilistic seismic hazard and risk analysis
  • Physics-based earthquake simulation
  • Wave propagation; regional path, basin, and site effects
  • Geotechnical and structural earthquake engineering
  • Structural health monitoring
  • Structural dynamics

Masters and Ph.D. degrees are through both the Department of Earth Sciences and the Department of Civil Engineering. Between these departments we offer comprehensive courses giving you proficiency in both seismology and engineering. Students directly working with a CERI faculty member as thesis or dissertation advisor are eligible to receive financial support from CERI, or through a currently active project sponsored by a third party or funding agency.

For  application and admittance information to this program, visit this page. Specific information about research topics and projects can be found on the individual research web sites of our faculty.
