Masters in Civil Engineering, Architecture & Construction

Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hidro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismical areas and others. The prerequisites for studying civil engineering include mathematics, physics, project management and design among others. The students can specialize in a variety of sub-topics like: Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Earthquake Engineering Costal Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Materials Engineering or Urban Engineering.

Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.

For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.
