This postgraduate program directs the training of human resources, directing the area of ​​civil engineering towards the specialization of professionals in structural, construction and environmental engineering, able to participate in the different phases of the design, construction and maintenance of buildings, as well as in the management of works and their waste, with a vision to create a first world society and to obtain sustainable building models that are characterized by presenting during its construction and operation: energy saving, optimization of natural and human resources, and waste minimization.


  1. Application of Earth Sciences
  2. Structures and Construction
  3. Engineering of Hydraulic Resources and Environmental Engineering

The research lines of the Master in Civil Engineering correspond to those cultivated by the academic body of Studies and Projects in Civil Engineering, and which are recognized by the (PROMEP) as Lines of Generation and Application of Knowledge (LGAC).

General objective

To train professionals of high academic level in the areas of Environmental, Construction and Structures, with the knowledge that allows them to implement and create innovative methodologies for their professional practice, as well as for the solution of problems of the discipline, through planning, design , execution, construction and supervision of civil works and hydrosanitary infrastructure, supported by the application or generation of knowledge for the economic development of the region and the country.

Particular objectives

MSc in Civil Engineering with option: Environmental

To train highly qualified professionals with the knowledge to plan, design, execute, supervise, construct, and efficiently operate the necessary urban hydrosanitary infrastructure in modern cities, through innovative know-how and methodologies, in accordance with legislation and policies in environmental matters, to assess the trajectory and behavior of surface and groundwater in different environmental scenarios. As well, they will be able to generate knowledge that allows developing, adapting and applying technologies in the solution of specific environmental problems for the development of the region and the country.

Master in Civil Engineering with option: Construction

To train professionals of high academic level able to plan, design, execute, supervise the different processes and build the necessary works, through specialized knowledge, innovative methodologies and the use of technological tools currently demanded by the construction industry; as well as, they will be able to propose sustainable materials and technologies for the construction through the generation of the knowledge or the technological development in agreement with the normative framework in force for the adequate economic development of the region and of the country.

MSc in Civil Engineering with option to: Structures

To train high level academic professionals capable of planning, designing, executing, constructing and supervising the different processes related to professional performance, proposing solutions that guarantee the integrity of the structures and the security of the users, with an analytical and numerical training in the characterization of structural materials and its application in the design of structural systems. Also, with the necessary skills to evaluate and diagnose the physical and structural state of existing constructions and through appropriate techniques reinforce, rehabilitate or repair such structures.
