Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is one of the oldest sub-areas of Engineering. The first program was created in 1900, and up until today, it is the most popular program among all sub-areas.

Civil Engineering is strongly connected to the production process, and a great deal of the evolution of society is accountable to it. With one of the most comprehensive curricula in the area, not only can students graduated from PUCRS’ Civil Engineering program work in technical areas, but in management and planning as well. One of the major highlights of the program is the technology that is used and the students’ ability to deal with people.

As the market is heating up, companies are looking for qualified professionals. The vast majority of graduates can find jobs even before they finish their degree.

Because of a variety of courses that are offered in the program, it is common for Civil Engineers to specialize in different areas: civil construction, highways and railways, construction of airports and hydroelectric ports, sanitation, appraisals, technical inspections, building maintenance and repair, transport and earthworks.

A civil engineer’s training includes Calculus, Physics, Chemistry and Computing, and professional development is mostly developed with logical reasoning. The program can be completed in 5 years, but continuous development is required for graduates.
