Educational objectives
Hide
The educational objective is to provide the labour market with high-level professionals with in-depth knowledge of the historical and technical-scientific aspect of building, of its implementation, rehabilitation and recuperation, to the specialist design, to the control of building economic and production cycle, identifying problems and finding appropriate design solutions, keeping pace with the innovative dynamics of the area, to improve the quality of building in its physical, technical, performance, economic and process aspects. In particular, the course aims at training professional engineers capable of working autonomously and effectively in the following fields: - Design of complex building systems, with respect to the technological, structural, environmental quality aspects, and with a specific attention to wellbeing, service life and to issues related to energy, environmental impact and seismic safety; - recovery, rehabilitation, maintenance and management of existing buildings and of historical buildings; - Development of the construction process, with respect to the use of innovative materials and technologies; - Energetic sustainability of building processes and products; - Testing and quality control of products and works with respect also to the durability of materials for new buildings and for recuperation.. The training offered by the 2nd cycle Degree Course, focusing on integrated building design, structural and plant design, enables graduates of this course to easily fit in various building industry sectors The number of credits for class specific educational activities provide further competences in the following sectors: - Structural Design Advanced study of structural analysis and design issues, through the in depth analysis of structures in reinforced concrete, pre-stressed concrete, steel, masonry with particular reference to the safety of the structures and to earthquake resistance issues. - Plant engineering Explores the design of technical plants and of safety systems for buildings, with particular attention to energetic and environmental sustainability issues. - Building rehabilitation Provides general and specific knowledge and the operational skills needed to tackle the building renovation sector in terms of building and structure design, of techniques and technologies as well as of the organization and management of interventions. Specific issues will then be detailed under a disciplinary and instrumental point of view with respect to the survey and diagnostics of damage and deterioration as well as of the study of the evolution of edifices , building techniques and traditional and innovative used materials. Existing laws will be then analysed, as well as the latest technologies for interventions and for testing the stability of buildings and inspecting yard works. The first year of the educational programme will study in depth subjects related to structural issues (dynamics, complex structures in steel, reinforced concrete and pre-stressed reinforced concrete), technological, environmental and plant engineering issues (technical architecture and technological innovation, design of technical, technological and safety plants). The second year is devoted to the preparation of building plans, with respect, in particular, to the recuperation of existing buildings, through the advanced study, under an integrated design point of view, of building issues (building design and building recuperation and conservation design), structural engineering issues (structural designs in seismic zones, structural problems of monuments and historical buildings), technological and energy issues (innovative materials and materials for rehabilitation, materials durability). The educational programme is completed by stages, internships, and the preparation of the degree dissertation.
Professional opportunities
Hide
2nd cycle graduates may find professional opportunities not only in self-employment, but also with high responsibility positions in the public administration, public and private agencies, building and maintenance companies, manufacturers of building materials and components, professional offices and engineering and architecture companies, companies managing real estate, consulting offices and service companies in the fields of technology, safety, thermal technique and quality control.
Final examination features
Hide
It consists of the presentation and discussion of a dissertation, written autonomously by the student and awarded with specific credits. The dissertation may be either the development of a project in which all the main aspects of future civil and environmental engineering profession - sect.A, or an in depth analysis of specific applicative issues characterizing the course. The dissertation may have an experimental character, thanks to the attendance to the laboratories of the Departments related with the degree course and the development of original contributions to the advancement of the disciplines.
