Bachelor of Civil Engineering
Presentation and Professional Profile
It is the branch of engineering that designs, manages and executes works such as houses, buildings, bridges, viaducts, roads, dams, canals, ports, etc. The civil engineer designs, manages and monitors all stages of a construction or renovation. Its work includes the analysis of soil characteristics, the study of the insolation and the ventilation of the site and the definition of the types of foundation. Based on these data, it develops the project, specifying the networks of electrical, hydraulic and sanitation facilities of the building and defining the material that will be used. At the construction site, he manages the work teams, supervising deadlines, costs, quality and safety standards. He is responsible for ensuring the stability and safety of the building.
The market for the engineer is warm all over the country, and the expectation is to improve further in the coming years, since we will have two major events in Brazil: the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. Civil construction is the sector that most absorbs this bachelor. The heating of the real estate market in recent years continues influencing the great demand for this engineer. Architecture offices also usually hire the professional to act in the planning of projects.
Main Theoretical and Practical Disciplines
Mathematics, physics, statistics, design and logic are the strength of the curriculum. So, get ready to exercise your skills in calculus. There are laboratory activities and business and economics topics that teach project and team management techniques and methods. In the final three years, you study subjects related to the areas of specialization chosen: structures, civil construction, hydraulics and sanitation, transport or geotechnics. To obtain the diploma, the internship is compulsory, as is a course completion work.
The internship is a moment of fundamental importance in the vocational training process. We, from UNIESP, carry out training that enables the student to experience what is being learned in the Faculty, with the function of integrating the numerous disciplines that make up the academic curriculum, giving them structural unity and testing them the level of consistency and the degree of integration .
