The 'Civil & Environmental Engineering' Program covers all theoretical and practical knowledge which is necessary for the analysis, design, construction, and management of technical projects, systems, and critical infrastructure. These activities are directly linked to the urban, regional, agricultural, transportation, and energy development of modern societies. The ‘Civil & Environmental Engineering’ Program also covers all theoretical and practical knowledge which is necessary for the environmental and sustainable development of modern societies, as well as the tackling of either traditional extreme events and risks (earthquakes, fires etc. ), or extreme events and risks which occur within the context of climate change (droughts, floods, etc.)
