Civil and Environmental Engineers share the common objective of improving the quality and safety of natural and built environments we live in. They help design structures and infrastructures such as residential and industrial buildings, dams, ports, water and sewage systems, roads, bridges, galleries, railways and airports. They also carry out analysis and monitoring processes of earthquake, water and other environmental risks, and help manage natural resources and energy.

Course content

The Civil and Environmental Engineering BA programme is divided into two different areas: Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The area of study is chosen in the first year. The two areas of study share the same scientific and engineering fundamental subjects, whereas they differ in other subjects that feature more specific application contents. Civil Engineering focuses on structures and infrastructures, i.e. on human buildings. On the other hand, Environmental Engineering focuses on development sustainability, natural resource management, and environmental risk monitoring.

Career options

Civil engineering graduates find work in companies involved in professional firms, public and private building companies, agencies and institutions in charge of territorial system planning and management, or safeguarding against environmental risks. They can also work for multi-utility companies responsible for the distribution network management, water and waste treatment, natural and energy resource management.
