Started in the academic year 2008/2009. The minimum number of credits for the degree is 120 (2 years). Course only start with 10 or more confirmed entries as definite by the Executive Council of the FCT NOVA.
Master in Civil Engineering - Structures and Geotechnics focus on the professional aspects covered by the new European regulations, on the ability to team work and in the encouragement for continuing education and respect for ethical and professional standards.
It is also expected a dynamic management of the Course setting up in the market flow justifying a new expansion and/or curricular structure changing.
Students benefit from interaction with research projects providing the introduction of new structural and geotechnical materials, solutions for ‘’smart structures’’, studies for TGV infrastructure and applications in seismic areas, dynamics and structures repair.
In construction companies, in civil engineering projects companies, intake structures and geotechnical laboratories, participation in planning studies and environmental impact of major engineering works depend on the type of training given to students who complete this Master.
Seismic risk studies, design of bridges and dams, soil containment structures, tunnels, embankments and port infrastructures.
