Member of the Directive Committee of the Master’s in Structural Engineering of the University of Minho, Guimarães (Portugal)
The Master’s Program in Structural Engineering is advanced training for Civil Engineers in the Structural field. This Master meets the current challenges of the construction and the management of the built environment industries, by addressing Smart Structures, Eco-Efficient Structures, Advanced Structural Analysis and Design, Risk Management and Extreme Events, and Geotechnics. It has a robust curricular component of integrative projects (one per semester), which aim, in addition to developing technical and scientific skills, to form professionals with high behavioural skills, such as the ability to integrate the knowledge of different areas, oral presentation, argumentation, leadership and teamwork.
