Faculties and centres
This subject belongs to the minor in Construction Technology. It is taught in the sixth semester (3rd year) of the Civil Engineering undergraduate degree.
The course is divided into the following activities: lectures, recitations (design cases), laboratory and computer practice. These classroom activities are focused on providing the future graduate scientific and technical training in the field of conception, design, construction and operation of highways, traffic networks and its related infrastructure.
Likewise, the training received by the student will prepare for the development and deepening of content on different disciplines belonging to Highway Engineering, approached by various specific subjects in further courses.
Although no specific academic prerequisite is required to take this course, it is strongly recommended for the student to have basic skills in Geometry, Mechanics (Kinematics and Dynamics), Graphic Expression, Surveying and Construction Materials Technology, acquired in several compulsory subjects in previous courses.
