Education objectives

The Integrated Master in Civil Engineering aims at preparing students for the Civil Engineer profession, namely by:
- granting skills for assessment, diagnosis, design, management, planning, deconstruction, reconstruction, rehabilitation and preservation of Civil Engineering structures;
- developing technical synthesis abilities as well as oral and written communication capabilities, in different contexts and with different interlocutors;
- enhancing students ability to understand the economic, industrial, commercial, social and professional contexts of Civil Engineering activity;
- cultivating teamwork, critical judgement and entrepreneurship.

The teaching process combines solid background training with a rigorous and up-to-date approach of highly specialized topics, providing students with the tools to successfully join the work market.

Career opportunities

The Integrated Master in Civil Engineering allows career opportunities in the global market, in companies of the building sector (e.g., consultancy, management, planning, inspection, construction, rehabilitation, design, certification, quality control, security, materials and technologies), in R&D centres and in the central and local administration.

Evaluation rules

The following modes of evaluation are used with regard to academic qualifications:

  1. Evaluation based solely on an examination or completion of a final project.
  2. Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester excluding examination or final project. In these courses students can expect to carry out, for example, laboratory activities, mini-tests, tests, individual or group projects, seminar-related activities, any combination of which will be used to determine the final grade.
  3. Evaluation based obligatorily on an examination or a final project. In these courses there extists a form of evaluation similar to one of the aformentioned activities in paragraph 2 as well as a form of evaluation based on a final exam.
  4. Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester with the possibility of foregoing an examination or a final project.

The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
