Admission requirements and recognizable credits

 

Curricular requirements

To be admitted to the Masters Degree in Environmental and Sustainable Building Engineering, Applicants must possess a three-year University Degree or Diploma or equivalent academic qualification obtained abroad and recognized as valid by Italian laws.

Mastery of another EU language other than Italian (both written and spoken) is also required.

Before enrolment, the curricular requirements and the adequacy of the personal preparation of the students must be verified through the procedure specified below.

If the results are not satisfactory, students must sit specific exams indicated by the Academic Committee.

The exams sat for the above-described reasons are not considered part of the Masters Degree Programme and therefore students will not be able to have these credits recognized within the Masters Degree.

These tests must be passed before sitting any of the exams indicated in the personal study plan drafted by the students during the enrolment phase.

Students may be awarded credits for their knowledge and professional skills. Each one must be certified according to the current legislation. They may also be awarded credits for further knowledge and skills acquired during post-secondary training activities, provided that the University was involved in the activities and for knowledge acquired through university exams, provided that the credits achieved through these exams have not already been used by the student to achieve his/her Bachelors Degree or qualification.

The maximum number of university credits that may be recognized is 12.

To be admitted to the Degree Programme, students are required to have achieved at least 120 credits during their University Degree Programmes or other study programmes recognized as valid by Italian laws in the Scientific Disciplinary Sectors indicated in the Call for applications.

 

Evaluation of the personal preparation of the students

The adequacy of the preparation of the students is assessed through an interview. After the interview students are given a certificate which states if their preparation is sufficient, adequate or insufficient to be admitted to the Masters Degree Programme. If the result is insufficient, students are not allowed to register.

 

Description of the programme

The Programme is devoted to graduates with a solid background in the core subjects of mathematics and physics, and a basic knowledge of the building and environmental engineering fields. The first year of the Programme provides students with the knowledge and working methods which are typical of modern engineering techniques, through which students are be able to develop the necessary skills of the Sustainable Building Engineering sector.

During the second year of the Programme students approach the studied subjects in a more in-depth manner, choosing elective subjects and completing their personal study plan through a personal thesis project, which must tackle complex interdisciplinary topics. The study plan is completed by elective subjects which may be chosen among the available related and integrative subjects of the Programme.

The elective subjects enable students to broaden their knowledge and provides them with information which may be useful both for their professional training and to plan and coordinate the processes in the construction and land management sectors.

 

Exam Features (270/04 Ministerial Decree, Article 11, paragraph 3-d)

The final exam consists of the discussion of a Masters Degree thesis for which students are awarded 17 university credits.

The thesis, which is interdisciplinary and must include original contents, represents a fundamental opportunity to evaluate the knowledge acquired by the student and his/her ability to carry out an in-depth analysis of a selected topic and use the achieved results in an independent and original way when dealing with the specific issues and the aspects of land modification for settlement purposes, and of the protection and enhancement of environmental features.

 


Employment and professional opportunities for graduates (Order regarding the Degree Classes, Article 3, paragraph 7)

The Masters Degree in Sustainable Building Engineering meets the specific needs of the job market, thanks to the quality of the education provided which reflects the socioeconomic development.

Graduates from the Environmental and Sustainable Building Engineering Programme, by using their skills to solve complex problems, will also be able to carry out work which requires a high level of responsibility in public and private institutions and bodies, engineering firms, building and environmental industries, construction and services companies for land management, in the field of research, as well as in a freelance capacity and in consulting services.

 

Manifesto of the studies

The Masters Degree Programme allows students to deepen their knowledge of the issues related to building engineering, focusing also on the environmental protection and sustainability requirements. The subjects, which are related to the civil and environmental engineering sectors, aim to provide the Masters Degree graduates with a deep knowledge of the strong and complex interdependency between land modification and environmental compatibility when designing and carrying out construction works.

The portion of the time available to the student for personal study or other individual learning activities is at least 60% of the time estimated to achieve the Masters Degree (15 hours per credit).

 

Academic procedures (even for distance learning), and methods used for verifying the preparation of the students

Each subject may involve lectures, group exercises, laboratories, team work, and any other activities that the teacher believes may be useful for achieving the learning objectives

Students are assessed through an exam (E) that may include oral and / or written tests according to modalities defined by the teacher and communicated to the students together with the programme (or on the website www.uniroma1.it, Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering, locations).For some activities there is no exam requirement if not a simple “pass/fail” assessment (V). Also in this case, the  evaluation methods are defined by the teacher.  

 

Attendance (also for part-time students)

Students enrolling and students already attending the Study Programme who are engaged in other activities may request the part-time solution, extending the length of the Programme but being required to achieve a lower number of credits per year (instead of the 60 credits which are usually expected).

The rules and procedures related to the part-time solution are indicated in the University Regulations.

The rights and duties of part-time students are the same as those indicated in the general regulations.

The Degree Programme Committee will appoint a tutor to support the part-time students with their study plans
