The Master's Degree Programme in Civil and Environmental Engineering focuses on the multidisciplinary aspect of emerging issues such as prevention and control of structural collapses, floods and droughts, air quality in cities, waste and energy management. It trains engineers with a strong traditional technical-scientific background, who are able to identify emerging issues and play an active role in decision-making processes.

Course content

The Structure and Infrastructure Design Curriculum addresses the design, execution, maintenance and verification of structures and infrastructure, new or existing, with respect to structural safety, seismic resistance, elastic instability, restoration and consolidation, fire resistance, through the use of advanced predictive and diagnostic simulation systems. The Water Resources Management Curriculum deepens the themes of Hydraulics, Hydrology and Hydraulic Construction in order to identify the most advantageous structural and non-structural strategies of water use and mitigation of flood risk, in an urban and rural environment. The Environmental Sustainability Curriculum focuses on physical and chemical technologies of waste treatment plants, remediation of contaminated land, air quality, assessment of the impact and environmental sustainability of projects of civil works and installations and urban plans, geophysics of the subsoil. The Energy Sustainability Curriculum offers specific content in the energy field, concerning the resources of the planet that can be used for energy, energy production technologies from renewable sources, energy saving performance of the buildings obtained, the design of heating installations and the certification and energy of buildings. The Degree Programme encourages the study abroad through the Erasmus programme, the Erasmus+ agreements, the Erasmus+ programme for Traineeship, the Moreoverseas programme (also in non-European countries) and the Vulcanus project (Japan). They can also perform periods in Asian countries such as China and Vietnam, obtaining very significant training experiences.

Career options

Master graduates in Civil and Environmental Engineering easily enter the job market. The employment rate at three years after graduation is 100%, higher than the national average (89%) with average pay of about 1500 Euro, higher than the national rate for the same type of Master's degree. Graduates can also access the selection for the Ph.D. School in Industrial and Territorial Engineering. During the Ph.D., students develop their aptitude for scientific and technological research, international scientific cooperation, and interaction with the industrial and economic area.
