Master's Degree in Concrete Engineering

90 credits ECTS

Introduction

Concrete is the most widely used construction material today, and has led to the most significant advances in the field of construction. It is also a basic pillar of the prefabrication industry. The study of binders and additions and the correlation between the microscopic and macroscopic properties of concrete are a good starting point for further investigation of concrete in all its aspects. All of these aspects are addressed taking into account the criteria of quality, safety, sustainability, development cooperation and corporate social responsibility.

Objectives

The main objective of this degree is to provide a broad understanding of concrete as a building material, as well as the skills necessary for the analysis and design of concrete structures.

The programme is designed to train professionals, researchers and teachers to become specialists in any of the following areas:

  • Physico-chemical and technological properties of concrete and its constituent conventional and advanced materials; manufacture and applications
  • Physico-chemical and technological properties of materials for the repair of structural concrete constructions and related applications
  • Construction procedures, machinery and ancillary equipment for the construction of conventional and singular concrete structures
  • Durability of concrete constructions and protective measures
  • Environmental and life-cycle properties of concrete
  • Assessment and diagnosis of structural concrete constructions and the methods, mechanisms and means for repair and rehabilitation
  • Mechanical resistance behaviour of structural concrete constructions, numerical modelling and experimental analysis
  • Concrete construction design, optimisation and planning
  • Industrialized construction and prefabrication
