Experimental methods and laboratory testing for civil engineering applications

The course is composed of the following five modules: Module 1 - Geotechnics (mandatory for career in Geotechnical Engineering); Module 2 – Hydraulics (mandatory for career in Hydraulic Engineering); Module 3 – Infrastructures (mandatory for career in Infrastructure and Transport Systems Engineering); Module 4 – Structures A (mandatory for career in Structural Engineering); Module 5 – Structures B. Each student will attend three of the five modules proposed in the course. The three modules will be assigned to each student on the basis of the career selected for the master degree (applicable only for careers held in Italian) and considering student’s scientific interests. Within each module short theoretical lectures will be used as a support for the extensive laboratory activities, which constitute the core of the course.
