Degree in civil engineering technology


Program Description



The Degree in Civil Engineering Technology Is an adaptation and improvement of the first cycle of the current degree of Engineering of Roads, Channels and Ports to the European Space of Higher Education. The main objective of this degree is to train engineers with a solid scientific base that can access the Master's Degree in Civil Engineering, with the best preparation possible.

Why study the degree

The academic, scientific and professional reasons to study this title are based on what has been designed:

  • To form university graduates with rigorous physical-mathematical preparation oriented to the technique and with generalist preparation solid in multiple fields of the engineering, and in particular of the civil engineering.
  • According to a training model where the scientific method is the basis of the teaching and learning of the technique.
  • As a first stage of access to a fully regulated regulated profession with more than 200 years in Spain as the Engineering of Roads, Channels and Ports directly related to the civil construction sector, which is a benchmark at the international level and one Of the main engines of the Spanish economy.

Also this degree qualification allows the access to the regulated profession of Technical Engineering of Public Works: Specialty in Civil Constructions.

Professional and academic outputs

The students who attend the Degree in Technology of Civil Engineering aim to continue their studies in the Master's Degree in Civil Engineering of Roads, Channels and Ports; For which this degree has been specifically designed. In this way, the fields of development of this degree are directly linked to the development fields of the Roads, Channels and Ports Engineers (who will have completed this degree together with the Master's Degree in Road, Channel and Port Engineering).

Thus, once finished the degree and the Master can develop professionally in:

  • Design and development of engineering projects
  • Planning, execution and construction in Engineering
  • Management and management of companies and institutions
  • Planning and strategy
  • Technical and scientific advice
  • Advanced Consulting
  • Maintenance and operation of infrastructures
  • Free exercise of the profession of Civil Engineer, C. and P.
  • Public function (administration and engineering)
  • Mathematical modeling and advanced simulation
  • Research, development and innovation

In areas such as:

  • Civil Engineering projects
  • The construction
  • Energy (infrastructures, generation, production, distribution, ...)
  • The structures (bridges, viaducts, footbridges, walls, industrial buildings, sports facilities ...)
  • The Engineering of the Land (tunnels, underground works, foundations, ...)
  • Hydraulics and hydrology (rivers, rivers, canals, distribution networks, river basins, groundwater, ...)
  • The sanitary and environmental engineering (supply, sanitation, purification stations, ...)
  • The ports and coastal actions (ports, marinas, dikes and piers, regeneration of beaches, ...)
  • Logistics and transport (goods, people, distribution, organization of transport, ...)
  • Roads, railways and airports (roads and motorways, highways, airports, ...)
  • Urban planning and spatial planning (general planning, spatial planning, ...)
  • The building
  • Among other fields related to engineering such as aeronautics, medicine, etc ...
