Presentation

Civil and Environmental Engineers share the common objective of improving the quality and safety of natural and built environments we live in. They help design and environmental impact evaluation of structures and infrastructures such as residential and industrial buildings, dams, ports, water and sewage systems, roads, bridges, galleries, railways and airports. They carry out analysis and monitoring processes of earthquake, flood and environmental risks as air, water and soil pollution, They carry out also waste treatment and help manage natural resources and energy.

Course content

The Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering is divided into two different areas: Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The area of study is chosen in the first year. By setting as a common distinguishing element the objective of improving the quality and safety of the natural and built environments in which we live, the two areas of study share the same scientific and engineering fundamental subjects, whereas they differ in other subjects that feature more specific application contents. Civil Engineering focuses on structures and infrastructures, with special emphasis on man-made structures. On the other hand, Environmental Engineering focuses on development sustainability, natural resource and urban environment management, and environmental risk monitoring, with special emphasis on natural systems.

Career options

Civil Engineering graduates find work in companies involved in professional firms, public and private building companies, agencies and institutions responsible for land planning and management, or protection from earthquake, flood, and environmental risks. They can also work for multi-utility companies responsible for the distribution networks, water and waste treatment, natural and energy resource management.

After the degree

The BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering is naturally followed by the MS in Civil Engineering (class LM-23) or by the MS in Environmental Engineering (class LM-35). Ph.D. Programs in Civil and Environmental Engineering are also possible for those Students that have enthusiastically completed the MS programs and want to further increase their technical skills
