Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering

2017-2018 academic year

This bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, aims to produce generalist engineers who have a solid grounding in the basic sciences and a wide-ranging view of civil engineering and its applications in developing and improving contemporary societies, and it seeks alternative solutions that respect the environment.How transport and cities are organised; designing roads; protecting coasts and beaches; defending against floods and earthquakes; analysing and designing large-scale infrastructure; and researching and developing new sources of energy—all of this is the work of civil engineers. The degree gives access to mobility pathways leading to double degrees with prestigious institutions across the world.
