This Bachelor’s degree aims to qualify its graduates with a set of multidisciplinary knowledge that enable them to properly intervene in society and with citizens, in the different areas of intervention of the civil protection system, obtaining skills in the dimensions, processes and technologies that civil protection agents use and compensate for the lack of cross-training in civil protection and relief activities.

These objectives are realized through training strategies focused on risk prevention and mitigation, relief and emergency, assistance to people and other living beings in distress, protecting cultural and environmental assets and values of high public interest, and supporting the restoration of the normality of life and society.


The Bachelor’s degree will enable its graduates to have access to the practice of Civil Protection Engineering acts (Decree-Law No. 349/99 of 2 September, with the amendments introduced later, after the favorable opinions of the Assembly of Representatives and the Profession Council that regulates the execution of the engineering acts by the members of the OET – Order of Technical Engineers), and also to a great diversity of career opportunities, such as working in:

Municipal, district and national civil protection offices; Public and private institutes and bodies with competence or intervention in this area; Security companies; Safety equipment project and development, production and marketing; International agencies; Public research organizations; Security and/or civil protection departments in private companies; Prevention and safety centers in industrial complexes; Consultancy and service technicians; Public administration technicians and decision-makers; Consultancy, advisory and training services; Fire departments; State administration services.
