Civil engineering provides sustainable solutions for integrating infrastructures within the environment and the society. Urban planning and their utilities, railway and highway network design, coastal engineering, risk assessment of floods and earthquakes, design and construction of bridges, tunnels, dams and ports or the integrated management of projects are the most common civil engineering activities.
The Bachelor's Degree in Public Works Engineering qualifies for practising the regulated profession of Technical Engineer in Public Works, in all specialisations: Civil Engineering Construction, Hydrology and Transport and Urban Sevices. In addition, after completing this program students can access the Master's Degree in Civil Engineering at UPV.
The Bachelor's Degree in Public Works Engineering comprises 240 ECTS during 4 academic years. During the first two years, basic courses (statistics, physics, mechanics, mathematics, drawing,...) and pre-technological courses (structural analysis, construction, transportation,...) are taught, while the third and fourth years focus on specific technological training in civil engineering.
