The Industrial Doctorates Plan finestra nova is a strategy of the Catalan government for contributing—in collaboration with public and private universities in Catalonia—to the competitiveness and internationalisation of the Catalan industrial sector, retaining talent and providing doctoral students with the conditions in which they can carry out research, development and innovation projects.
Industrial doctoral programme in Civil and Geo-Environmental Engineering

 

The overall objective of the industrial doctoral programme in Civil and Geo-Environmental Engineering
is to provide education in the development of new civil and geo-environmental engineering techniques driven by the needs of industry from an international perspective. The specific objectives of the programme are the following:

  • For students to gain advanced, highly specialised knowledge in the field of civil and geo-environmental engineering.
  • To provide students with advanced education in research techniques in accordance with the principles of the scientific community.
  • To produce doctoral theses that make a scientific contribution to the area of specialisation and that is relevant to the field of civil and geo-environmental engineering.
