The course in brief


The objective of the course is to provide the graduate with advanced training to operate at high levels of qualification in the field of civil engineering: structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic and maritime construction, infrastructure, and engineering for land protection and preservation. The course provides specific skills for the analysis of complex engineering works, development of technological innovations, planning and process management.

Learning by doing

Design exercises for civil engineering works and interventions. Analysis to be carried out also with the aid of numerical methods. Drafting of design drawings and technical reports. Dissertation consisting of a project and/or the development of an application of an innovative nature. Internships at prestigious foreign companies and research institutions.

Professional outlets

  • Freelance: consulting and design activities
  • .
  • engineering companies and professional firms working in the field of design, construction, operation, maintenance of structures, infrastructure and works aimed at land protection
  • construction companies
  • public administrations: technical offices of municipalities, regions; state technical services; Basin Authorities; Port Authorities, Reclamation Consortia, etc
  • public and private entities
  • research centers.

What you will learn

  • conceive, design, implement

    Civil works, infrastructure, land protection

  • experimental activities and tests

    On materials, in wind tunnels, on hydraulic models

  • modeling and design

    Through exercises and development of real cases, in computer labs

  • technical terminology in the English language

    teaching taught in English, scholarly publications

  • method of learning

    For professional activity and further study with master's and doctoral degrees

  • communication skills

    Exposure of results of exercises and experimental activities

Did you know that.

  • 100% of graduate students are satisfied with the course (AlmaLaurea Consortium data)
  • 90 percent of graduates work after one year after graduation (AlmaLaurea Consortium data)
  • As of a.y. 2018/19 in the curricular activities, the training internship is provided.
  • Internationalization is encouraged, with courses in English and numerous exchange agreements with prestigious foreign universities and companies


The Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering aims to provide an advanced level of education that enables one to operate at the highest levels of qualification.

In particular, the educational pathway enables:

  • deepen the structural and geotechnical aspects of civil, industrial and infrastructure construction
  • ideas, plan, design and implement civil, industrial and infrastructure constructions
  • deepen the issues of maintenance and conservation, with reference to different building materials
  • address the many problems related to the protection of the natural and man-made environment, within the framework of a realistic development of the economy and society (sustainable development)
  • address the design, implementation and maintenance of works aimed at slope protection, stream and coastal defense
  • integrate the knowledge acquired through the training internship.

Training Objectives.

The teaching organization provides two curricula: Structures and Territory.

The course includes during the first year the analysis of theoretical-scientific aspects of civil engineering, in order to be able to address and solve, also in an innovative way, complex problems characteristic of the field. Some topics covered in first-level courses are explored in depth and more specialized topics are addressed.

The second year, differentiated by curriculum, focuses on the acquisition of specific skills, aimed at the design of complex engineering works, the development of technological innovations, and the planning and management of processes in specific areas of civil engineering.
