Why Pursue a Master’s Degree in Structural Analysis and Calculation?
The Master’s degree in Structural Analysis and Calculation seeks to reinforce, increase, and strengthen the knowledge and skills of construction professionals in the areas of structural design, calculation, and dimensioning in civil works projects. This program consists of modules focused on the structural calculation of foundations, vaults, frames, screens, walls, among others, via conventional methods.
In addition to providing the necessary theoretical framework, this master’s program will enable students to carry out a diversity of practical cases and exercises. Finally, a master’s final Project must be prepared for the students to apply all of the knowledge they have acquired throughout the course.
