The disaster and emergency condition after the earthquake in
February 2010 in Chile motivated to entities from all over the world
to offer for help.
The HMW program from the TU had the initiative to develop a

three areas of Housing, Manufacturing and Water can contribute to
enable students for better management of natural disasters and

the Concepción University, Chile. There, participated experts
of the three disciplines of the program from the partner universities
from it in India, Africa and Latin America.
The main theme of the workshop was the case study about the
