This course has two distinct streams; Sustainable Highways and Sustainable Railways.

Highway engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of highways, including vehicular, cycle and pedestrian highways and with their effective management. All this must be achieved as sustainably as possible.

Railway engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of railways, extending to rapid transit (tram) systems, and with their effective management. All this must be achieved as sustainably as possible.

Both of the streams within this MSc programme take a radical, hands-on approach by linking traditional teaching intimately to near-real life highway and railway engineering problems. It provides the technical knowledge and skills to develop the analytical, decision-making and critical powers required to solve, in a sustainable way, genuine, practical highway and railway engineering problems. It will help you to develop transferable skills which could lead to a successful career in highway or railway engineering.

About the School of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the key to many of the issues affecting our lives today. Civil Engineers solve problems, design, build and maintain our living and working spaces. You might design a new stadium, work on a local by-pass or railway line, assess a damaged structure, provide immediate and safe drinking water to a refugee camp, or manage a multi-million pound construction project.
We tackle the problems faced by society today: we aim to develop the knowledge and tools to build the communities of the future. Many of our projects have already had a significant impact on society; the impact of others will be felt by generations to come.
The performance of Civil Engineering in the Research Excellence Framework (REF), the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions, has shown that the majority of its research was rated as internationally excellent.
We work closely with industry, charities and research councils to encourage innovative thinking which has an impact on our lives. As a result we are proud of our heritage of internationally-recognised, multidisciplinary research in a stimulating research environment.

Presentation

See http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/uploads/media/Civil_Engineering_02.pdf
Civil Engineers deal with structures (e.g. buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams) and infrastructures (such as roads, railways, airports, water supply systems, etc.). The two-year Master of Science in Civil Engineering provides students with a sound preparation on these topics, allowing them to choose a curriculum (or ‘track’) among the five available: General, Geotechnics, Hydraulics, Transport Infrastructures and Structures. The ‘General’ curriculum aims at training civil engineers with a broader range of expertise in the design, implementation and management of civil works of various kinds. ‘Geothecnics’ is devoted to the study of engineering problems involving geomaterials (i.e., soil and rock) and their interaction with civil structures (foundations, tunnels, retaining walls).
‘Hydraulics’ deals with problems concerning water storage, transportation and control (pipelines, sewers, river and coastal erosion control, reservoirs). ‘Transport Infrastructures’ covers various subjects of transportation engineering (road and railway design, airport and harbor design, modeling of transport fluxes). ‘Structures’ is devoted to the analysis and design of civil and industrial structures
(steel and concrete buildings, bridges, etc.). The tracks ‘Geotechnics’ and ‘Structures’ are taught in English.
