Academic Year 2015-16

There are several courses organised by the School that candidates may attend depending on individual curricula. All courses will be held at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering except where differently indicated.

This is the Calendar of the institutional courses for the academic year 2015/16 (also available in the download box below): click on the individual courses for further info about programs and registration details

N.B:  this schedule may change; courses require a minimum enrolment of 3 students. In case of no link on the course title, it means that the course has not been activated yet. 

Candidates must obtain 15 credits from institutional courses + 15 credits from other activities (see Credits recognition section for further details)
