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.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers programs of graduate study and research in the following two areas: mechanics, materials, and structures; and environmental engineering and water resources.
The Sustainable Systems Engineering (SSE) program is designed for practicing, mid-career engineers seeking professional advancement.
Our Infrastructure Engineering and Management programme will give you in-depth knowledge about specialised aspects and management of infrastructure systems. Such infrastructure specialists are required to support the UK government towards more efficient and accelerated delivery of the National Infrastructure Plan as well as lead in the planning and delivery of new, and the management of, congested infrastructure systems in overseas countries.
Architecture is the study of building through orchestrating relationships among artistic, technical, social, cultural, and political issues. The curriculum cultivates inquisitive graduates who approach architectural practice and research with the aptitude for speculative thinking and critical inquiry. Master of Architecture is an accredited professional program for future designers of the built environment to develop a comprehensive design foundation and technical ability.
The Penn State Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, established in 1881, is internationally recognized for excellence in the preparation of undergraduate and graduate engineers through the integration of education, research, and leadership. We offer the B.S. degree in Civil Engineering, an undergraduate minor in Environmental Engineering, and M.S., M.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in both Civil and Environmental Engineering. In 2010-2011, the Civil Engineering undergraduate program was ranked 14 by U.S. News and World Report, the graduate program in Civil Engineering was ranked 19, and the graduate program in Environmental Engineering was ranked 16.
The Master’s programme in Management in the Building Industry gives you insight into all management-related phases of modern construction; from ideas about shape and use to project design, construction, management, operation, and maintenance. Besides the technical aspects, the programme also covers fields such as organisation, economics, project management, working environment, logistics, and information technology.
The Graduate Pathway in Architecture offers you the chance to enhance your English and academic ability. It will prepare you to successfully pursue graduate studies at University of South Florida.
INTO George Mason University’s Graduate Pathway program in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering will prepare you to enter the second year of a Master of Science in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering at George Mason University.
Graduates may eventually apply their professional skills in various government agencies, private enterprises, or nonprofit organizations within a variety of subject areas.
The purpose of the Master of Arts (M.A.) in Architecture degree program is to prepare students to do specialized research, consulting, or teaching in fields related to the architecture and urban design professions.
The Graduate Pathway in Civil Engineering gives international students a chance to improve their English before continuing on to the master’s degree program at Oregon State University.
The School of Architecture, Princeton’s center for teaching and research in architectural design, history, and theory, offers advanced degrees at both the master’s and the doctoral levels. The curriculum for the master’s degree, which has both a professional and a post-professional track, emphasizes design expertise in the context of architectural scholarship. Architecture is understood as a cultural practice involving both speculative intelligence and practical know-how. Each student constructs a personal course of study around a core of required courses that represents the knowledge essential to the education of an architect today.
