Short Courses in Civil Engineering & Construction

Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hidro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismical areas and others. The prerequisites for studying civil engineering include mathematics, physics, project management and design among others. The students can specialize in a variety of sub-topics like: Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Earthquake Engineering Costal Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Materials Engineering or Urban Engineering.Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.

Developing Social Housing Projects Short Course Developing Social Housing Projects
  • May 2016
  • EEA € 2,750 per module
  • Non-EEA € 2,750 per module
  • 21 days

One of the characteristics of developing countries is fast growing cities and the lack of affordable and adequate housing. Social housing policies try to address the housing problem but have often been implemented in such ways that the people in real need are not reached and/or the social housing projects do not improve the overall living conditions of people or lack a contribution to sustainable urban development to their problems. Developing and therefore allowing for better implementation of social housing contributes directly to the living conditions and to the growth of cities in the developing world.
