The aim of this master's degree is to give a specialization of professional nature, allowing a sequence of studies to the holders of the degree in civil engineering, and similar areas, enabling the improvement of the knowledge acquired that ends in developments/original applications originated by the completion of a project/training. The graduate students of the study cycle should be able to:
- Apply the knowledge and the capabilities to understand and to solve problems in new and non-familiar situations, in a broad and multidisciplinary context;
- Combine knowledge, to deal with complex problems, to developed solutions, and to make judgments in situations of limited or incomplete information;
- To communicate the conclusions, the knowledge, and foundations related, to specialists and non-specialists, in a direct and non-ambiguous way;
- To develop a life-learning process in an autonomous mode.
