Master in Structures Of Civil Engineering

InformationThe course/CS does not admit students in 1987/1988.
About the Course

The taught part of the M. Sc. Course extends during two semesters. Each student will have to conclude successfully 5 disciplines of the 1st semester (compulsory) and 5 disciplines of the 2nd semester (optional, to be selected from the disciplines of the Programme Profile). Classes will take place during the mornings from Tuesday to Thursday. The Course Director will define the plan of Studies Plan for each student, taking into account: (i) the formation at graduation course, (ii) the professional experience after graduation and (iii) the student's preferences. A minimum of 6 students is required for each discipline to be implemented.

Qualifications for Admissions

The candidates should be graduated in Civil Engineering, with a minimum classification of 70%. Graduate candidates with a classification lesser than 70% may be admitted under evaluation of the corresponding curriculum.

Course Aims

The M. Sc. Course in Structures of Civil Engineering aims to provide an in-depth theoretical and practical formation on Structures, covering the matters and subjects not dealt with (or insufficiently handled) during the graduation course in Civil Engineering. The M. Sc. Course is oriented to complement the specific formation of the candidates, so as to account for the professional needs, covering the fields of Design and Execution.

The Course includes a two-semesters taught part, and the elaboration of an original dissertation for public defence. A Diploma of Specialist on Structures of Civil Engineering certifies the successful conclusion of the taught part. The conclusion of the taught part and the successful conclusion and public defence of an original dissertation allows getting the M. SC. Degree on Structures of Civil Engineering.

Programme Profile

The disciplines of the taught part of the course are the following:

1st Semester (all compulsory)
New Materials
Nonlinear Analysis of Structures
Structural Instability
Applications of the Finite Element Method
Instrumentation and Observation of Structures

2nd Semester (to select 5 of the following disciplines)
Design of Special Concrete Structures
Design of Steel and Composite Structures
Applications of Seismic Engineering
Bridges and Large Span Structures
Rehabilitation and Strengthening of Structures
Earth Retaining Structures and Foundations
Masonry and Timber Structures
Technologies and Construction Techniques


The dissertation will be in principle supervised by one of the Course lecturers and should be prepared in the 6-month period after completion of the taught part. The deadline for submission of the dissertation is 24 months after the starting date of the course.


Tuesday: 8:30h-13h
Wednesday: 8:30h-13h
Thursday: 8:30h-13h
The Wednesday afternoon will be dedicated to seminars lectured by invited specialists. Part of the Thursday morning will be devoted to laboratory works.
