Profile of the programme The overall objective of this study cycle is to ensure specialised training in Civil Engineering, of international level, required to the exercise of the profession with the ability to assume the responsibility in the design of engineering solutions, serving the interests of society in general and its sustainable development. It is intended that UBI's Masters exercise the profession of Civil Engineer, as defined by the Order of Engineers and International pairs, applying theoretical, practical and experimental knowledge framed by economic, environmental, social and ethical constraints. For this purpose, it provides:

* Broad education in the main scientific and technical Civil Engineering domains, with a focus on the critical formative aspects for each one of these domains;
* Specialisation branches in 'Structures and Construction' and 'Geotechnics and Environment'.
Key learning outcomes The study programme aims to provide the following knowledge, skills and competences:
- Ability to consolidate and apply knowledge in the core scientific areas of Civil Engineering;
- Ability to apply methods and techniques to analyse and solve complex and diverse problems;
- Ability to communicate written and oral knowledge;
- Ability to teamwork and autonomous learning;
- Ability to research and study, analyse and critical interpretation of information;
- Entrepreneurial capacity, of respect for interdisciplinarity and innovation for sustainability;
- Ability to develop scientific and technical competences that allow rapid and effective integration in professional activity.
Occupational profiles of graduates The civil engineer's profession is multidisciplinary, requiring in-depth and up-to-date knowledge in various fields. Throughout their professional life the civil engineer can act in different fields, namely building structures, bridges, dams and special structures, foundations and terrain modelling, construction materials, their performance, durability, recycling and recovery, construction technologies and management, environmental comfort and building rehabilitation, construction management and inspection, water supply and drainage, sanitation and solid waste treatment, roads, water resources, regional and urban planning, among others.
