The candidates will get in touch with academic teachers, professionals and managers active in tunnelling. The course aims not only at providing an internationally recognized academic title but also at creating a centre of excellence on tunnel engineering, where the different professionals are capable of interpreting and managing the complexity of the problems and becoming active and innovative actors in the research of new engineering solutions as well as capable of assuming position of responsibility in project management. The career opportunities can be identified in companies of design, construction, manufacturers of materials and technologies, machine producers, roads and railways infrastructure managements.
