Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering deals with Plan, Analyze, Design, Build & Maintain facilities i.e Bridges, Buildings, Dams, Culverts, Irrigation Channels and Steel Structures etc for the people.
The civil engineer has the challenge to satisfy the vital needs of society by designing, building, managing and maintaining complex infrastructure projects with a global approach, taking into account socio-economical and environmental interactions.
He is a generalist with high competences in various fields such as structures, hydraulic schemes and energy, geotechnics and tunnelling, transportation infrastructures and systems, management, legal and economical aspects as well as environmental issues. Civil engineers work in multidisciplinary and very often multicultural teams.
Civil engineering will give the students the required knowledge to face a big challenge: create the necessary infrastructures for economic prosperity, hence guaranteeing the whole population an adequate standard of living.
High priority is given to a transdisciplinary teaching in the ENAC School by bringing together civil engineers, architects and environmental engineers, through the program “Design and build together”.
An EPFL Master of Science in Civil Engineering will lead the young graduate to a stimulating career in an engineering consulting firm, a construction company or a government agency, or allow him/her to open his/her own civil engineering consulting firm.
