Applied civil security and safety


Guarantee against risk is part of the modern world’s biggest stakes. It is the reason why the University of Technology of Troyes (UTT) and the Institut National des Hautes Etudes de Sécurité (INHES) work hand in hand to train people to new professions in security. Lectures cover all the security aspects and propose a global approach: the security of people and goods taking into account urbanism, environment, networks, ecology, and crises. Because of the problems of security and safety, which are rising, a new professional approach has appeared: engineering and management in global applied security. This allows setting up the basics of an efficient cooperation between management methods of people and goods’ security, of living areas’ safety, economics, industrial and commercial protection, and of systems’ safety and communication networks.
