Master in Tunnelling: design, construction and management

As testified by the number of kilometers of tunnels constructed every year all around the world, the tunnelling is a rapidly expanding sector on the global scale. In this context, suitably trained professionals, with multidisciplinary knowledges are largely demanded. At present, these skills are not provided by the traditional academic courses and cannot be easily acquired during the standard professional activity.

The Master course in Tunnel Engineering is the synthesis of the experiences gathered during the years by two centre of excellence of tunnel teaching, Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino. It 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 professionals, all operating both at a national and an international level, will tackle different engineering and technological topics, but also organizational, environmental, economic, legislative, strategic and managerial themes.
The Master is a full-time course lasting one year. During the first six months the students will attend theoretical lessons, seminars and will take part in technical visits in construction sites and laboratories. Most of the lessons will be online, while one month of face to face classes is scheduled to facilitate the collaboration among the students and the development of a network with academic teachers, professionals and managers involved in tunnelling.
