About

Profile of the programme The study course leading to a doctoral degree in Civil Engineering aims to train researchers in the field of Civil Engineering, with high scientific qualification and ability to develop research work independently, designed for the university environment, and for the environment business. It is intended that a PhD in civil engineering, after achieve their specialized training, can continue to develop, and apply the knowledge gained in their research work, either in industry and in the institutions of R & D, resulting thus in capital gains, contributing significantly to the development and internationalization of scientific research and technological development. In addition to the above objectives, we intend to further contribute to the internationalization of science produced in Portugal and the technical development. Regarding the normative order No. 45/2008 of 21 August, which approves the statutes of the University of Beira Interior (UBI), the mission of this university is to promote high-level qualification and production, transmission, and dissemination of knowledge, culture, science and technology through the study, teaching and research
