Program Description

Welcome to UAlg Virtual Fair!

The challenge posed by social distance makes it possible, curiously, that we are all closer.

Anyone from anywhere, any place in the country or in the world, will have the opportunity to visit the UAlg Virtual Fair and learn about our offers for the 2020/2021 academic year.

What awaits you?

For two weeks, participants will be able to visit an interactive pavilion, where stands from all higher schools and colleges will be available with materials to publicize the training offers for consultation and download. Each stand will also provide a live chat in which participants can ask questions. The virtual fair will also open space for course presentation sessions, transmitted through videoconference. The week from the 15th to the 19th of June will be dedicated to TeSP courses, Bachelor's and Integrated Masters, while the week from the 22nd to the 26th of June will be dedicated to Postgraduate courses and Masters. Come and discover, explore, question, feel, and choose the University of Algarve!

Overview

The MSc in Civil Engineering aims to give a professional specialization by developing the technical and scientific capabilities by the holders of a 1st cycle in Civil Engineering, which is offered by both institutions. This proposal of a 2nd cycle answers to both the necessities of the students who want to continue their 1st cycle studies, in a near location which is compatible to the place of residence/work and the companies (firms and regional economic activities) seeking for a better qualification of their professionals. The specialization fields in this 2nd cycle (Structures and Construction), as well as the classes' hours (after-work regime), seek to be in line with the needs and expectations recorded in the region.
