As is testified by the number of kilometers of tunnels constructed every year all around the world, tunnelling is a rapidly expanding sector on a global scale. In this context, suitably trained professionals, with multidisciplinary knowledges are in largely demanded. At the moment, these skills are not provided by the traditional academic courses and cannot be easily acquired during the professional experience.
The Master course in tunnel engineering, supported by many companies operating in the tunnelling sector, is conceived as a high specializing course, aimed at providing multidisciplinary skills, by defining a complete and articulated framework of all the necessary contents to prepare professionals with operational capabilities in design, construction and project management. Academic teachers and professional, operating both at a national and an international level, will tackle different engineering, technological, organizational, environmental, economical, legislative, strategic, managerial themes. The master will give the possibility of getting in touch with academic teachers, professionals and managers. The course aims not only at providing an internationally recognized academic title but also at creating a centre of excellence on tunnel engineering, where the different professionals are capable of interpreting and managing the complexity of the problems and becoming active and innovative actors in the research of new engineering solutions as well as capable of assuming position of responsibility in project management. The career opportunities can be identified in companies of design, construction, manufacturers of materials and technologies, machine producers, infrastructure managements.
The course is held in English.[/vc_column_text]
