The three-year degree course* in Civil Engineering/IASA (Anti-seismic Engineering for Environmental Sustainability) was activated by the University of the Republic of San Marino in the academic year 2007-08 (in accordance with the new teaching system DM270/04) in collaboration with the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Thanks to the selected number of students, which characterizes each class, a privileged relationship between student and teacher is guaranteed. Learning is facilitated through lectures, exercises, laboratory simulations and guided visits.

It belongs to class L-7 Civil and Environmental Engineering established by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research.

The degree course in Civil Engineering/IASA (Anti-seismic Engineering for Environmental Sustainability) aims to provide a complete and solid basic training on the central topics of Civil Engineering, for rapid entry into the world of work or to easily undertake master's degree.

The degree course in Civil and Environmental Engineering deals with structural safety, with particular regard to the design and construction of earthquake-resistant buildings, and sustainable development with an innovative approach to engineering that pursues the improvement of the environment and the human condition. Sustainable engineering transforms traditional approaches by taking into account the life cycle of materials, renewable energy sources, environmental protection, cost-effectiveness of works, risk analysis and other emerging techniques.

The course awards a double degree from the University of the Republic of San Marino and from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, legally valid in San Marino, in Italy and in Europe.

Secondary school graduates or those in possession of another equivalent qualification obtained abroad can enroll.

The training activity is mainly carried out through lectures in the classroom with the support of the latest generation audiovisual tools. The classes have a limited number of students and guarantee a direct relationship between teacher and student. Theoretical courses are accompanied by practical exercises, use of specific software, laboratory activities, guided tours and internships.

The notions acquired during the training course allow graduates to operate in various sectors, with particular reference to:

  • infrastructure design in seismic areas;
  • hydraulic works;
  • geotechnical design;
  • management of energy sources;
  • management and organization of construction sites;
  • quality control of materials used in construction;

Following the degree, the junior civil engineer preferentially finds employment in design studios, construction companies, public administrations, insurance companies, credit institutions, local authorities.
