Accredited - A3ES Decision
Confered Degree | Duration | ECTS
Master Degree | 4 Semesters | 120 ECTS
The following may apply for the Master's Degree:
a) People who hold a B.A. or equivalent degree;
b) People who hold a foreign academic degree awarded after a 1st study cycle organized according to the Bologna Process by a member state of that process;
c) People who hold a foreign academic degree acknowledged as a degree satisfying the objectives of the graduate degree by the due body;
d) People who have a school, scientific or professional curriculum acknowledged by the due body of ULHT certifying the capacity to obtain this study cycle.
Have completed a total of 120 ECTS
The aim of this 2nd cycle is to prepare Master graduated in specialized areas of Building and Structures and Construction and Hydraulics, with generic objectives that flow directly from legislative provisions.
These goals are intended to provide specific skills and preparation that can continue the academic journey, providing in particular the technical and scientific knowledge necessary for the subsequent frequency of Doctoral Programs. This course of study has two distinct areas of expertise (Specialization in Building and Structures and Specialization in Construction and Hydraulics), with different goals and different curricular structures, for which distinct faculty are allocated, but not disjoint.
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
The 2nd Cycle Diploma Civil Engineering aims to provide knowledge and understanding capacity to a level that:
¿ Supported by the knowledge level of the 1st cycle, that develop and deepen them;
¿ They constitute the basis of developments and unique applications, especially in a research context.
¿ Ability to apply knowledge, understanding and problem solving in new situations and unfamiliar, in broad contexts and disciplines, yet related to their area of study.
¿ Ability to assess situations and decision-making capacity, to integrate knowledge, handle complex issues, develop solutions and make judgments in situations of limited or incomplete information, including reflections on the implications and ethical and social
responsibilities that constrain such solutions and these judgments, or resulting from it.
¿ Communication skills, allowing to transmit information, ideas, problems, solutions and conclusions (and the underlying knowledge and reasoning), both the public constituted by specialists and by non-specialists, in a clear and unambiguous way.
¿ Ability to learn throughout life, as a self-oriented and independent way.
Equipments and venues
The academic activities take place on the campus of Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon (Campo Grande), which has all the equipment and infrastructure necessary for the theoretical and practical teaching of the subjects covered by the curriculum, particularly in the area of computer science, with updated software as well as laboratories to support practical lessons/research in the areas of Mechanics and Material Resistance, Building Materials, Structural Analysis, Hydraulics, Soil Mechanics and Communication Routes.
The preparation received in this course will allow the graduate to continue his academic career, providing, in particular, the technical and scientific knowledge necessary to attend a Doctoral Programme.
