Education GC

 

Education in civil engineering is provided by the section of Civil Engineering until the master degree (10 semesters). Our mission is to train civil engineers by emphasizing on his interdisciplinary education. We can achieve such goal by a part of transdisciplinary education, shared by all three institutes of the ENAC faculty (Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Architecture), through the concept of “Design and Build Together”. While keeping the specifics of each profession, this concept promotes the sharing of knowledge and prepares the future engineer to merge and lead construction projects, where multiple actors and issues are involved.
