Master's degree in Civil Engineering

Master's degree in Civil Engineering provides advanced multidisciplinary and technological training that will enable you to work in research, design and analysis of infrastructure and civil engineering projects and will qualify you to practise as a civil engineer.

The curriculum reinforces prior learning in mathematics, physics, science and technology on the bachelor's degree course by teaching students the most advanced and experimental techniques for modelling in engineering. The master's degree includes study abroad at some of the most prestigious engineering schools in the world in the framework of mobility programmes and agreements.

It provides future professionals with a solid technical grounding in designing infrastructure and supervising its development, and in planning and managing environmental services and resources for spatial planning.
