Profile of the programme The overall objective of the cycle of studies is to ensure specialized training in Civil Engineering, with an international character, required to a professional practice, with the ability to take higher responsibilities in the design of engineering solutions, serving the interests of society in general and its sustainable development. It is intended that future masters exercising the profession of Civil Engineer as defined by the Engineers Associations, applying theoretical knowledge, practical and experimental framed by economic, environmental, social and ethical constraints.
Key learning outcomes - Deepen knowledge in the areas of nuclear sciences in civil engineering, linking them in a manner consistent with the related basic sciences, seeking to establish solid bases for the scientific understanding of advanced nuclear matters and expertise of Civil Engineering;
- Develop learning methods to solve complex and diverse problems in order to prepare future masters to easily address the real situations of the profession, which in most cases, require specific, unique and non-routine solutions;
- Develop communication skills, both written and oral, to enable a clear and unambiguous exposition of knowledge and reasoning either for specialists or non specialists;
- Develop skills of critical analysis of results and technical solutions for evaluating the application of these methodologies and its replacement by others;
- Develop skills to conduct an objective performance, in order to separate the relevant information from the less relevant aspects for solving a given problem;
- Develop skills of research and study, of analysis and critical interpretation of information that can later continue learning throughout life, independently;
- Develop an awareness of the role of civil engineer in society, to ensure a professional approach in accordance with social standards, moral and ethical activity appropriated to civil engineer activity;
- Develop the propensity for scientific knowledge, entrepreneurship and innovation, rather than the routine application of methodologies;
- Develop scientific and technological skills that enable the integration on business and professional activities, in the frames of companies of studies, projects, consulting and construction, technical departments of local and governmental authorities, higher education schools, institutes and research laboratories and special services.
Occupational profiles of graduates The profession of civil engineering is multidisciplinary and therefore it requires deep knowledge and updated in several areas. Throughout his career civil engineer can intervene in different domains in particular, building structures, bridges, dams and special structures, foundations and modeling of the land, building materials, their performance, durability, recycling and recovery technologies and construction management, environmental comfort and rehabilitation of buildings, the direction and supervision of works, supply and drainage water, sanitation and solid waste treatment, of roads, water of regional and urban planning, among others.
