The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department offers a unique curriculum of studies and research aiming at developing and promoting sustainable engineering solutions. These are based on science and technology in the fields of construction and infrastructures, under constraints of climate changes, extreme events, resources depletion, and increasing pollution. The Department's curriculum has been built so that it can educate and train engineers who understand their special task in the field and the impact of their actions on society. The curriculum encompasses a variety of topics, among them structural and infrastructural engineering, geomechanics, building materials, construction management, extreme events preparation, water systems engineering, climate oriented construction, and air pollution control. First degree (B.Sc.) graduates have broad and diverse employment choices, from basic design to the management of complex projects. They can specialize in several orientations of second (M.Sc.) and third (Ph.D.) degree studies, which will prepare them for research and management positions in the private and public sectors.
The first degree (B.Sc.) program in structural engineering offers two specialization tracks:
a. Structural engineering
b. Construction management
Second (M.Sc.) and third (Ph.D.) degree studies can be undertaken in one of the following three programs:
· Structural engineering – specializations in structural engineering (including geotechnics, and protective structures and protective technologies) and construction management.
· Environmental engineering – specializations in water pollution control, air pollution control, and sustainable construction.
· Management and safety engineering.
