Master in Civil Engineering – Building Construction

Open Applications 2019/2020

Goals

To give a specialization of professional nature, allowing a sequence of studies to the holders of the degree in civil engineering, and similar areas, enabling the improvement of the knowledge acquired that ends in developments/original applications originated by the completion of a project/training. The graduate students of the study cycle should be able to:

  1. Apply the knowledge and the capabilities to understand and to solve problems in new and non-familiar situations, in a broad and multidisciplinary context;
  2. Combine knowledge, to deal with complex problems, to developed solutions and to make judgments in situations of limited or incomplete information; 
  3. To communicate the conclusions, the knowledge and foundations related, to specialists and non-specialists, in a direct and non-ambiguous way; 
  4. To develop a life-learning process in an autonomous mode.
