A discipline of professional engineering, civil engineering has to do with designing, constructing and maintaining manmade structures such as dams, canals and roads. The term “civil” is used to distinguish this field from military engineering.

The third cycle Programme (PhD) in Civil Engineering was launched in 2008 and revised for the 2012/2013 academic year in compliance with the principles of the Bologna Process and Decree-Law 74/2006 of 24 March, which defines Academic Degrees and Higher Education Diplomas.
The guiding principles of the Doctoral Programme in Civil Engineering are the following:
to complement the training received by holders of master degrees and 5-year undergraduate degrees in the field of Science and Engineering, particularly Civil Engineering, by providing advanced training in fast-growing areas such as Construction, Structures and Geotechnics, Hydraulics and Environment, as well as Planning and Transport Infrastructures, with particular emphasis on innovation and development of technologies and processes in these areas and on the source materials/products for construction technologies;
to provide students with solid training in research methodology and experimentation, which may allow them to conceive and promote the elaboration of research and development projects in academic and/or professional contexts, thus contributing to increase their abilities in terms of research, technological development and, consequently, their ability to innovate in order to achieve further knowledge in the field;
to boost Civil Engineering-related research and technological development, promoting their consolidation as an important element of the industrial sector.

The program of Doctorate in Civil Engineering Is organized by the ETS Of Engineers of Roads, Channels and Ports of the University of Coruña and in it participate the departments of Mathematical Methods and of Representation and Technology of the Construction. It replaces the program of the same name governed by RD 1393/2007, which was distinguished with the mention of excellence by the General Secretariat of Universities in its resolution of October 6, 2011. The ETSICCP of the UDC is the only center of the university system of the Autonomous Community of Galicia in which master studies are taught in the field of Civil Engineering. The current program of doctorate in Civil Engineering is also unique in its scope in the university system of the autonomous community of Galicia....

The Ph.D. course prepares culture-oriented and high scientific profile researchers to engineering applications, and enable them to develop knowledge, new methods of investigation, design and research activity in public or private bodies, along with managerial competencies. The available curricula are Architecture and Civil-Environmental Engineering.
Activities are oriented to advanced design, theoretical analysis, soft-computing, and experimentation. The first year includes courses or lectures on basic science subjects and organizational aspects of research, according to the weaknesses of the individual initial preparation and the selected research themes. An analysis of the state of the art will be also carried out, and the main theme of study will be identified. The second and third year will be devoted to the individual themes, and a stay in a research body of international relevance will be proposed. Common features are a multidisciplinary theoretical-experimental approach and interaction with the territory, the industrial and professional world....
The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering
Civil engineering covers a wide range of subjects and The University of Nottingham is recognized for its world-class learning environment and excellent facilities.
Research topics within civil engineering can be based on structures, Geotechnics, fluid mechanics, transportation, GPS surveying, road materials and many other aspects.
This course requires a 2:1 or international equivalent and/or a master's degree at merit level or above in a relevant subject, and an IELTS level 6.0 (5.5 in each element). It is usually completed over a period of around three years.
There are extensive facilities available to postgraduate research students across the two research divisions including those in the Pavement Research Building, the Nottingham Geospatial Institute and the Nottingham Centre for Geomechanics.
The Pavement Research Building is a purpose-built center for research and development in all areas of pavement engineering; design, performance, maintenance, and materials. It incorporates laboratories for testing asphalt, concrete, bitumen, aggregates, recycled and other paving materials as well as pilot-scale pavements....
Our Masters in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is an advanced course designed for engineering graduates to enhance their skills in this area of high technology.
Our Masters in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is an advanced course designed for engineering graduates to enhance their skills in this area of high technology. The ever-increasing pace of developments in all areas of electrical and electronic engineering, (and in particular in the systems that are related to energy and the environment), requires engineers with a thorough understanding of operation principles and design methods for various modern electrical and electronic systems. As a graduate, you'll be able to not only respond to the latest changes but also to look ahead and help in shaping future developments.
There is an increasing demand for skilled engineers who are able to design and maintain electrical and electronic systems that are at the forefront of current technologies. These positions cover many industries. Hence graduates from this course can expect significantly enhanced job prospects in electrical, electronic as well as systems engineering....
QUB Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (EPS)
The research centre will address the topical grand challenges in the civil engineering field, building on existing and developing new international collaborations.
The research centre will address the topical grand challenges in the civil engineering field, building on existing and developing new international collaborations. Financial support to meet these challenges will be acquired through both internal University initiatives (for enhanced infrastructure and facilities) and external funding from government grants, charities and direct industrial support.
The research will address the grand challenges of energy, carbon, clean water, infrastructure; exploring extremes and defining new limits. Key research areas include:
Marine renewable energy,
Groundwater and environmental systems,
Intelligent infrastructure and high-performance structures,
Energy efficient materials.
