Mission and goals
Graduates in Civil Engineering work in the field of constructions and infrastructures. The subjects taught in the Master’s Degree Program aim at strengthening the basic preparation of the students, providing them, at the same time, with an adequately deepened knowledge of topics central to Civil Engineering. Students can choose their field of specialization in one of the following areas: Geotechnics, Hydraulics, Transportation infrastructures, Structures. Suggested study plans help students define their curriculum. Additionally, a General curriculum is also proposed, aimed at students preferring a wider spectrum formation in Civil Engineering. The programme includes two tracks taught in English.
Engineers having obtained the Master’ degree can find career opportunities in the following areas: 1. companies involved in the design and maintainance of civil structures, plants and infrastructures; 2. universities and higher education research institutions; 3. public offices in charge of the design, planning, management and control of urban and land systems; 4. businesses, organizations, consortia and agencies responsible for managing and monitoring civil works and services; 5. service companies for studying the urban and land impact of infrastructures.
They can also work as self-employed professionals.
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.
