Course description

The three-year degree allows undergraduates to access the employment market with the qualification of Junior Civil Engineer. The course of studies allows students to acquire skills in the four areas that characterize Civil Engineering: Geotechnics, Hydraulics, Structures and Transports. The knowledge and skills acquired allow undergraduates to design and execute civil engineering works of medium complexity. The course of studies is completed with the Master Degree in Civil Engineering, which allows undergraduates to acquire advanced knowledge of Civil Engineering and to work as professionals to their full potential.


Students with a secondary school diploma (5-year course) and students with another qualification obtained abroad and recognized as suitable. Ideal candidates are students with an interest in innovation and science, in the planning, design, and management of land-use, infrastructures, and the built environment

Training professionals able to deal with the various aspects of civil engineering, from the design to the execution of works of medium complexity, with an interdisciplinary approach and applying these skills to new works and systems, to the recovery of existing ones, and to the use of traditional and innovative materials.


Design activities of medium complexity in: companies dealing with the construction and maintenance of civil works, plants and infrastructures; professional firms and design companies; bodies dealing with the planning, design and management of public works; as well as in service companies focusing on the study of the impact of infrastructures at urban and territorial level
