Active since 2001, from the academic year 2014/2015 the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering has been offered in an Interateneo mode with the University of Molise, governed by a conventional act that allows the release of the joint degree. This organization makes it possible to take advantage of the synergy resulting from the presence of facilities (classrooms, laboratories, internships) existing in the two universities, as well as the possibility of guaranteeing the student a broader educational offer. Since its activation, the degree program has always pursued educational objectives consistent with the professional profile, identified on the basis of the needs of the productive world. This has also been possible through consultation with the social stakeholders most directly concerned (professional firms, construction companies, companies). In fact, the Course is aimed at training a figure of civil engineer with transversal skills in the various characterizing sectors: geotechnics, structures, hydraulic constructions, road networks and transport, building construction, urban planning, equipment, and architectural design. Therefore, the civil engineering graduate finds his or her place of employment in engineering design companies and in construction and maintenance companies for structures, buildings, plants and infrastructures, in the direction and management of construction sites, in technical-commercial structures, in service companies and agencies, and in public administrations for the planning, management and control of urban and territorial projects and services. In terms of educational offerings, there are two branches, general and building, which are organized as follows: in the first year, common to both branches, the disciplines of mathematics, physics, computer science, materials science and technology, and drawing are addressed; in the second year, the teachings of hydraulics, geotechnics, and construction science are introduced, and also transportation, urban planning, and road construction for the general branch, history of architecture, technical architecture, and architectural design for the building branch. Technical physics and climatology of the built environment add green building skills; the third year channels the acquired skills toward application to basic problems and simple systems, with the design of reinforced concrete and steel structures, foundations, and retaining structures; finally, the general address is completed with hydraulic construction, and the building branch with land design and urban planning.
Teaching is organized into 20 teaching courses. The choice of SSDs and CFUs assigned to the different educational activities and the final examination is aimed at the acquisition of the educational objectives described above. The characterizing areas and training credits are mostly covered by internal teaching staff, so as to ensure teaching continuity in the lectures. There are also, in addition to departmental facilities common to other degree programs, specific laboratories in which teaching and advanced research activities are carried out. An internship is included in the educational offer, which takes place, also thanks to the stipulation of specific conventions or protocols of understanding (e.g., with ANCE), generally at external companies and professional firms.
At the end of the course of study, the graduate can complete his or her education by joining one of the master's degree programs activated at the two universities.
