; Graduates of this master’s programme will be qualified to practice the profession of Civil Engineer as stipulated in the provisions of Ministerial Order CIN/309/2009 of 9 February (BOE 42, 18 February 2009). They will possess solid scientific and technical training that will enable them to practice their profession in all areas of civil engineering. This training refers to the technical qualifications required to deal with and solve the problems inherent in the conception, design, construction, exploitation, maintenance, and management of hydraulic and transportation infrastructures and their associated building structures. It also includes the implementation of new technologies in construction processes, territorial planning, urban services, transportation, traffic, mobility, and energy resources, all with the lowest environmental impact.
Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
