The Master Degree in Building Engineering aims at the training of a professional and cultural
interdisciplinary profile, characterized by a solid basic culture and deep knowledge of theoretical-scientific aspects, operating methods and even the most innovative technical tools related to the building sector, starting from design up to realization, in relation both to new constructions, and to preservation and restoration.
The Master course lasts two years. In the first year the training activities provide knowledge related to the history of architecture, structural modelling skills and the seismic behaviour of structures, with reference to the building energetic and plant issues, parametric modelling of architecture and design and safety in workplaces. The second year provides more advanced experiences of architectural design, with particular reference to sustainability and structural design. The training offer also includes a variety of free courses to deepen issues on architecture, building and plant design.
The trained professional profile has a very good theoretical-scientific knowledge and is able to set up, develop, manage and coordinate high qualified activities in the building sector, to identify, formulate and develop, in an innovative way, complex matters requiring an interdisciplinary approach. He/she is also able to manage the design process and the realization of the new building or the reuse of the current building heritage, in accordance to the most advanced methodologies of the building engineering. He/she is able to manage all the different steps of the building process, from ideation to executive design and construction in the building site, taking into account technical, organizational and safety aspects.
He/she has a deep knowledge of the materials, components and construction systems as well as of
corporate organization and can operate in the corporate or business environment in relation to technical aspects or management and control of the economic / production cycle.
The training of the master's degree in Building Engineering also aims to provide the skills for lifelong learning in a sector with high technological evolution, for further specialization in specific or scientifically advanced sectors, for the continuation of studies in levels of higher education such as Masters and Doctoral Schools.
