Civil Engineering

The areas of interest related to this 3-year bachelor Degree course in Civil Engineering are: construction (civil and industrial buildings, remarkable construction projects such as bridges, dams, tunnels, etc.) and infrastructures (roads and transportation, supply, distribution and water supply systems, etc.). In this context, the Civil Engineer deals with the design and construction of works and handles with their operation, maintenance, detection and control. In recent years, with regard to the Civil Engineering sector, has been increasingly developing the demand for specialised professional profiles such as, for example, the environmental and land Engineer or the Construction Engineer, who are now provided with dedicated training offers. The study course in Civil Engineering finds its applicability in the continuous request of professional profiles with a solid and wide knowledge flexibility and updating skills, essential to face the diverse matters and the continuous development of technologies related to the world of buildings and civil infrastructures

Standard Specialisation

The main educational objectives of the Degree course in Civil Engineering are:

  • provide students with an adequate command of general and basic scientific methods and contents, with particular reference to the ability to use this knowledge to interpret and describe matters related to the field of Civil Engineering;
  • provide students with specific professional knowledge required for graduates to enter the job market.

The professional profile is that of a Civil Engineer who is able to operate in one of the areas of traditional competence (architectural design, design of structures and infrastructures, design and management of hydraulic works and for sanitary engineering).

The educational offer, while being fully in line with the general objectives of the Civil Engineering Degrees curriculum is more specifically aimed at training emerging professionals in the Civil Engineering field. To this end, the didactic organisation aims to ensure the acquisition of updated methods, techniques and tools, that enable to:

  • design and construction of medium-small size structures;
  • design and manage medium-small sized Hydraulic Engineering structures;
  • design and manage Environmental Health Engineering facilities;
  • design and construction of transport infrastructures;
  • have the fundamentals for the delivery of geometric surveys.

The educational path of the graduate in Civil Engineering is divided into three levels:

  • basic general training in mathematics, physics, statistics and engineering;
  • characterizing learning training in the disciplines related to structural engineering, with particular reference to Science and Construction Techniques;
  • characterizing learning training, aimed at creating professional profiles by means of educational activities mainly focused on appraisal and geology sectors.

Environmental Specialisation

The aim of this specialisation is to train a graduate with a solid basic engineering background acquired in the first year of the course to which is added a high level of competence on environmental issues through the specific teachings conducted in the subsequent two academic years. More specifically, the graduate in Civil Engineering - Environmental specialisation will be able to:

  • understand the interactions between anthropic and environmental factors, with particular reference to the issues of reproducibility of natural resources, energy consumption, air, water and soil pollution, waste disposal.
  • understand the principles and methods of urban and environmental regeneration intended as guidelines for interventions on cities and the territory.
  • employ technical tools in order to prevent or reduce the degenerative processes of ecosystems as well as to addressing adaptation actions in human settlements and natural environments in terms of sustainability.

To this end, during the second and third year of the course, alongside with the traditional disciplines, students will deepen modules related to soil protection, environmental appraisal, hydrology, transport systems and geomorphological risks. Furthermore, the student will be able to choose among various elective modules, such as urban planning, environmental assessment procedures and urban and environmental law, through which the student may specifically outline his/her training path.

Standard Specialisation

The employment opportunities are linked to those working fields, in which products and systems are planned and developed with regard to the Civil Engineering field, such as:

  • technical offices of public institutions ; (Municipalities, Provinces, Regions);
  • construction companies;
  • professional firms and engineering; companies;
  • material testing laboratories.

Furthermore, the course knowledge aims at preparing students interested in continuing their studies and successfully pursue a master degree programme in Civil Engineering. In addition, to access to higher study levels, this course provides sufficient knowledge so that to allow students to participate the exam to get licensed as a professional engineer.

The course trains for the profession of:

  • Civil construction technicians and similar
  • Water systems and other fluids Technicians

Environmental Specialisation

The specific competencies of the graduate in "Civil Engineering – Environmental Specialisation" are more increasingly requested by the government and local management entities, professional and sectorial companies, as well as public and private administrations, responsible for the process of selection in the environmental sector. Freelancers are also likely to find themselves in more demand in the future.

Admission to the course is open to all applicants who, upon enrolment, are in possession of the following qualifications:

  • A valid and recognised high school diploma, irrespective of country of conferment, achieved after at least 12 years of schooling.

It is also required a basic knowledge corresponding to the average level acquired through school education at upper secondary education level. The assessment of the basic knowledge will occur according to the methods indicated in the Academic Regulations of the course of reference.

Traineeship

Pegaso International's traineeships are integral part of the student academic curriculum, and are provided as practical activities of the academic record relevant to the completion of the study course. Traineeships may be mandatory or recognized as processes through which students may gain exemptions of credits. The number of credits gained for curricular traineeships is stated in the Standard Study Plans. Traineeship activities are officially recognised through the acknowledgement of credits (1 ECTS = 8 hours). Generally, the working hours are mutually agreed upon between the trainee and the host company, considering the current needs of both parties and the company working hours. Students may undertake the traineeship at any time of the year.

Students will be considered eligible for admission for a traineeship, upon the positive assessment of a minimum number of ECTS, with reference to:

  • three-year degree courses: 100 ECTS out of 180
  • master's degree courses: 50 ECTS out of 120
  • one-year master degree course in Informatics: 20 ECTS out of 90

Students are required to reach specific agreements with the host company and communicate the following data in writing to Pegaso International to the mail: traineeship@pegasointernational.eu

  1. Name of the Host company;
  2. Agreed time frame of the traineeship;
  3. Name and surname of the company tutor and relevant contact details (telephone and email);
  4. Educational objectives of the traineeship, agreed with the company tutor.

Upon completion of the traineeship, students are required to submit to the competent office the following documentation:

  • Application for recognition of the traineeship activities and relevant ECTS gained; download the form
  • Certificate of Traineeship undertaken, to be sent on letter head, signed and stamped by the company tutor; download the form
  • Brief report on the activity undertaken during the traineeship hours, signed and stamped by the company tutor.
