MS Structural Engineering

Pakistan has experienced major disasters with intense frequency during last decade. Establishment of National Disaster Management Authority and its subsidiary organizations at provincial and district level have brought the paradigm shift from relief oriented approach to prevention, mitigation, and preparedness commonly referred as disaster risk management.
