Mission and goals

The degree programme in Civil Engineering aims to train professionals capable of planning, designing and managing structures and infrastructures, such as buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams, water distribution and drainage systems, roads, railways, harbours and airports. Civil Engineers must have sound mathematical and physical bases to master the theoretical models that are employed to analyze and design steel and reinforced concrete buildings, earthworks, hydraulic engineering works and transportation infrastructures. The 1st year of the BSc programme is devoted to basic subjects. The fundamentals of the core subjects characterizing Civil Engineering are mostly taught during the 2nd year of the BSc. Eventually, applied subjects are gathered in the 3rd year.

Career opportunities

Graduates can operate as self-employed professionals, or as employees in public administration or private companies dealing with problems of civil, building and environmental engineering involving soils, structures, transports, hydraulics, civil protection and surveying. They can act as designers or managers.
