General

Program Description

eng

Introduction

The broad experience achieved by the Universities of A Coruña and Magdeburg in the training of Civil Engineering and Water Engineering professionals within the last decades has culminated in the development of a Joint International Master Degree meeting the requirements of the European Space of Superior Education set by the Bologna Treaty.

Why study

At the moment there is an increasing need for qualified professionals in the field of Water and Environmental Engineering that posses not only high skills in this field of expertise but that also own qualifications that allow them to develop their professional activity within an international environment.

What you learn

The Master provides an academic training, which allows specialization, after obtaining the relevant degree of access to the field of engineering or experimental sciences. In science, students will be able to pursue research training and a Ph.D.

Professional and Academic Career

The training acquired by the students, enabling them as professionals specializing in water issues and qualified to work in companies specialized and general consulting, laboratories, service companies, construction companies. Qualified personnel development activities I+ D + I. Practices (15c) in companies and institutions linked to the UDC will be a compulsory subject and increase options entitled to their employment.

Professional Environment

Although the situation of employability in recent years is still difficult, students, upon completion their formation in this master, have been incorporated into the working life related to water management companies, both Galicia and the rest of the country and foreign companies.

Recommended Profile

Students expecting to be trained as qualified professionals in the field of Water and Environmental Engineering with not only high skills in this field of expertise but also owning qualifications that allow them to develop their professional activity within an international environment. Studies of other related branches of science and engineering: In these cases, students will be recommended to curse supplements.

If the degree of access is another engineering but not the branch of Civil Engineering, the candidate must demonstrate that they have passed (or possibly be prepared to take and pass simultaneously) minimum credits in the area of Hydraulics and Hydrology (6c) and college-level Environmental Engineering (6c). Access from degrees of scientific disciplines (Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Environmental Science, etc), in this case, candidates must have passed (or be willing to take simultaneously and exceed) minimum credits in the following disciplines: Mathematics (10c) and Mechanics Fluid and Physical (6c) at a university level. In order to study these complementary subjects simultaneously, the University of A Coruña give all possible facilities within the catalog of subjects currently taught in the School of Civil Engineering.

General Application Requirements

Engineering or applied sciences grades of the European Space of Higher Education or equivalent degrees from outside, including Technics engineerings Studies of other related branches of science and engineering: In these cases, students will be recommended to curse supplements
