Fullständig kursbeskrivning

How can we develop a resilient critical infrastructure, including transport infrastructures, power grids, etc., that can withstand the adverse effects of climate change while ensuring sustainability?

Target group: Transport infrastructure Engineers, municipalities, maintenance organizations, operators, managers, and researchers interested in critical infrastructure and climate change impacts.

Pre konwledge: Upper secondary school, bachelor, or equivalent.

Course content:
Module 1: Infrastructure for sustainable development
Module 2: Climate-resilient infrastructure concept
Module 3: A sustainable transition for climate action

How the course will be conducted: Students are introduced to the subject before the lessons through self-study of educational materials (Flipped classroom). Students will have direct access to educational materials, and the teacher serves as a coach and mentor. Canvas Room is a learning platform designed for the course and for interaction and assessment between students and teachers. During lectures, there will be opportunities for questions and time for brief discussions.

Extent: 80 hours if the examination passed is going to be registered as 3 credits or 40 hours if the examination passed is registered as a certificate.

The course is structed a follows:

  • For Credits, 46 hours of self-study, 18 hours meeting time, and 4 hours quizzes/examination; 12 hours of group activities (80 hours) are required.
  • For the Certificate, 18 hours of self-study, 14 hours of meeting time, and 2 hours quizzes/examination; 6 hours of group activities (40 hours) are required.

To pass: For credits and certificates; Oral and written presentation of assigned coursework. In order to receive higher education credits, students need to supplement the written report with a more in-depth analysis of a number of sub-tasks. In addition, during the course, students may assess through the following items :

  • Multiple-choice questions to quickly assess fundamental knowledge.
  • True/false questions or matching questions for swift evaluations.
  • Short-answer questions focusing on specific concepts or applications.

Teachers, a brief presentation:
Amir Garmabaki is an Associate Professor in Division of Operations and Maintenance Engineering and climate actions for transportation infrastructure. He is interested in exploring the effects of climate change on the entire life cycle of transport infrastructure through RAMS and resilient engineering. Additionally, he investigates the climate adaptation policies and measures required to ensure robust and resilient operations under both short-term and long-term scenarios.

Ahmad Kasraei is a researcher at LTU, Division of Operation and Maintenance Engineering, working on the effect of climate change on critical infrastructures under various scenarios. In addition, his PhD was dedicated to maintenance planning and the impact of different policies on maintenance cost and RAMS parameters in railway tracks. He has over 10 years of experience in the rail and road industry.

Ulla Juntti, adjunct professor in operation and maintenance technology, with 40 years of experience from the railway industry.
