Undergraduate in Engenharia Civil (pós-laboral)


Provide a solid scientific, technological and social learning, supported by a programme and courses that includes contact with real situations and laboratories experiences. This cycle of studies is based on the development of a diverse set of skills and competencies that permits excellent career opportunities and pursue postgraduate studies.



This study program provides a comprehensive training in civil engineering in areas such as Structures, Building, Geotechnics and Foundations, Hydraulics and Planning.

This degree complies with Bologna requirements and aims at providing the students with mobility, training and access to a wide range of career opportunities in circumstances similar to those offered by renowned European higher education institutions.

Training is supported by delivery methods that allow active learning based on the acquisition of theoretical knowledge and the development of practical coursework, projects, field trips and participation in technical lectures dealing with the resolution of engineering problems specially those related with construction works.

The course curriculum is profession-oriented and aims at providing the students with the ability to apply learned skills in the resolution of real engineering problems.

Graduates from this program are expected to be able to perform their activity in civil engineering related sectors and be part of multidisciplinary teams in such areas as development, project, conduction and supervision of construction works (both in the private and public sector) training and applied research.
