The third cycle Programme (PhD) in Civil Engineering was launched in 2008 and revised for the 2012/2013 academic year in compliance with the principles of the Bologna Process and Decree-Law 74/2006 of 24 March, which defines Academic Degrees and Higher Education Diplomas.
The guiding principles of the Doctoral Programme in Civil Engineering are the following:
to complement the training received by holders of master degrees and 5-year undergraduate degrees in the field of Science and Engineering, particularly Civil Engineering, by providing advanced training in fast-growing areas such as Construction, Structures and Geotechnics, Hydraulics and Environment, as well as Planning and Transport Infrastructures, with particular emphasis on innovation and development of technologies and processes in these areas and on the source materials/products for construction technologies;
to provide students with solid training in research methodology and experimentation, which may allow them to conceive and promote the elaboration of research and development projects in academic and/or professional contexts, thus contributing to increase their abilities in terms of research, technological development and, consequently, their ability to innovate in order to achieve further knowledge in the field;
to boost Civil Engineering-related research and technological development, promoting their consolidation as an important element of the industrial sector.

Backed by an unparalleled reputation for expertise and innovation in mineral extraction, mineral processing, and environmental protection, the graduate program in Mining Engineering has two types of students in mind:
Those from industry who wish to improve their workplace skills; and
Those who wish to pursue research leading to advances in state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice mining and mineral process engineering.
What makes the program unique?
In keeping with the collaborative approach of the NBK Institute of Mining Engineering, one of the Department’s greatest strengths lies in its ties with Canada’s mining industry.
Most of our students have opportunities for industry employment and participation in research activity at working mines. This hands-on approach helps our students develop practical skills and gain exposure to valuable case histories. Also, many of our faculty members are active within the industry through consulting activities and involvement in professional societies relating to mining....

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the natural and built environment. It is a very broad field made up of several sub-disciplines such as environmental engineering, construction engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydrotechnical engineering, materials engineering, structural engineering, and transportation engineering. Many of the sub-disciplines of civil engineering are themselves very broad and are made up of further distinguishable sub-disciplines. For example, hydrotechnical engineering includes water resources engineering, offshore engineering, and coastal engineering.
