Description

The International Master Course in Civil Engineering is an international graduate programme, entirely taught in English and open to students of any Nationality. The main goal of the programme is educating professionals with the necessary in-depth scientific and technical knowledge in the field of civil engineering, within a multicultural educational environment. The programme is intended to give to the students firm technical bases while nurturing decision-making and leadership potential. It prepares graduates to practice their profession at an advanced level and with a unique exposure to an international environment to better understand global issues of civil engineering.

The master duration is two years (4 semesters). Some courses will be given by invited foreign professors.

In the second year, the curricula courses allow the students to specialize in the following areas: STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING; INFRASTRUCTURE DESIGN IN RIVER BASINS; OFFSHORE ENGINEERING.

The curricula courses allow students to become skilled in civil engineering project-management, in design and analysis of civil-engineering structures and infrastructures, providing a comprehensive know how on civil engineering materials, technologies and processes. The Civil Engineering Board will help students selecting the courses and building their own curriculum.

The courses will be organized with in-class teaching activities, practice, design and laboratory activities. The lectures of the course will be recorded and available for the students by means of a podcast system. The final exam consists in the public discussion of a dissertation (the Master thesis).

Career opportunities:

After the Master, civil engineers plan and design all types of buildings, houses, industrial plants, bridges, roads and railways, waterways and water reservoirs. Besides these traditional activities, in industrialised and rapidly evolving societies, the skills of Civil Engineers are increasingly requested in the fields of territory planning and environment preservation. Moreover, the arising demand for safety and protection against natural and industrial risks is the framework in which the skills of Civil Engineers meet the continuously evolving needs of Civil Protection.

Main employers of civil engineers are national and international construction companies, engineering and consultancy agencies and, public authorities. Quite a number of civil engineers are self-employed and run their own company or office.

Dual Degree programmes

Students can select among two joint education Master Programmes with the University of Columbia or with the University of Miami.

Participation in the Dual Degree programme implies attending courses at the University of Bologna during the first year and at University of Columbia or at University of Miami during the second year. In order to be enrolled in the partner University, students must have certified TOEFL (for both Columbia and UM) and GRE (just for Columbia) scores.

The University might provide some fellowships to cover the expenses. Students following the Dual Degree with the University of Columbia will pay fees at the University of Bologna for the first year and at the partner University for the second year, while students attaining Dual Degree with the University of Miami will pay fees to the University of Bologna both for the first and for the second year.

The selection of students to be included in the Dual Degree programme is based on merit and is made according to a call issued every year and reserved to students enrolled in the first year of the Master Programme.
