Civil and Environmental Engineering (in English)

Master's Degree Programmes

It is so good to see the enthusiasm of students, both Italian and foreigner ones, when they open themselves up to an international experience that very often starts as an additional educational opportunity to then evolve into a work experience abroad. We are not looking to facilitate the "brain drain", rather to reinforce the international prestige of our students, who are the keys to this project and who will become the leading people of our country.
