Professional profile

Civil engineering with emphasis on water management requires knowledge of alluvial phenomena, climatic variations, water sensitivity of ground, water usage guidelines, protection from pollution, as well as interaction among engineering-environment-ecology. This program is indeed aimed at producing engineers who can handle the above issues of water management.
In the curriculum, a close examination of these problems and the development of conceptual tools to solve these problems need to be undertaken. The curriculum is formed by three stages: the first stage deepens the basic knowledge of students in theoretical and generic topics; the second stage is more specialized; and the final stage is the dissertation (thesis), where the students organize their own work and learn how to handle complex issues.

Job opportunities

A successful graduate can be employed in environment and water management companies; he/she can also work in offices, where his/her responsibility would be to bridge the gap between research and real-life planning. Further, the graduate can also work as a researcher in this field.

Final exam

1. To be admitted to the final exam the student must have successfully passed all the exams of the program of study.
2. The final exam for the bachelor's degree (Laurea di I livello) consists of a public discussion of a dissertation or of a written thesis. The final exam for the master's degree (Laurea specialistica) consists of a public discussion of a dissertation worked out by the student, under the guidance of a professor. The final assessment of the student is a combination of the average score obtained through all courses attended during his academic curriculum and the score of the final exam.
3. Educational structures decide how the Examining Board, that will give the master's degree (Laurea specialistica), is made up.
4. The Examining Board for the bachelor(Laurea di I livello) is made up of 5 to 7 members, including the President; the Examining Board for the master (Laurea specialistica)is made up of 7 to 11 members, including the President. In both cases most of the members are professors or permanent researchers. The Examining Board can give up to 110 points; honors can be given if the mark is 110 and if all members agree. With the master's degree it is possible to obtain the Dignità di stampa in case the final mark is 110 with honors and all the members agree.
