This Building Engineering programme from Politecnico Di Milano trains Building Engineers who can manage the complexity of building projects, through the application of engineering principles and tools to building design and construction. The programme focuses on sustainability, on energy efficiency and on safety issues in the building sector, considering both horizontal (interdisciplinary) and vertical (life cycle-related) integration.
The Building Engineer is a professional with robust scientific and technical skills, ready to:
engineer the architectural design of complex, large and/or of special buildings;
supervise the design integration of all technological and technical parts (building fabric, structure, building systems); manage the whole manufacturing and life cycle of components;
organize and control the construction and the maintenance processes.
More specifically, the Building Engineering programme provides students with the knowledge and the tools necessary to model the detailed physical and structural behaviour of building components and, in particular, of the building envelope, the filter between the interior and exterior environment. Hence, the Building Engineer is able to bring, into multidisciplinary design teams, the necessary skills to design innovative envelope components and to assess the related performances in their service life. The programme is taught in English.
The Master degree Building Engineers are mostly employed by architecture and engineering design and consulting firms as well as by construction and maintenance, services and facilities firms, manufacturers of building materials and components. They are also employed by Public Administrations, property management and quality control service and appreciated as private consultants.
