Faculty profile

The Department of Civil, Construction-Architectural and Environmental Engineering (hereinafter referred to as its Italian acronym “DICEAA”) aims to group researchers bound together by scientific interests within the frame of Civil, Construction-Architectural and Environmental Engineering and previously belonging to the former Structural, Hydraulic and Soil Engineering Department and Urban planning and Architecture Department of the University of L’Aquila. The DICEAA is involved in the research, development as well as teaching of the sciences related to Civil, Environmental and Construction-Architectural Engineering.

DICEAA carries out its activities also by means of its 11 laboratories and two Research Centers, CERFIS and M&MOCS.

The Department of Civil, Construction-Architectural, Environmental Engineering is formed by 8 first level and 21 second level professors, 12 researcher and it is divided in several research sectors according Civil Engineering and Architecture area (Building Science, Building Techiques, Hydraulics, Hidraulic and Maritime Constructions, Topography and Cartography, Geotechinical, Applied Geology, Ecology, Environmental Physics, Science and Technology of Materials, Design, Architectural Techique, Urban and Architectural Planning, History of Architecture, Urban Technique and Planning, Construction of Roads Railways and Airports, Transportations).

Together the activity of the department there are also two centers of excellence and two research centers with interdepartmental activities:

Research and Formation Center for Seismic Engineering (Centro di Ricerca e Formazione per l’Ingegneria Sismica, CERFIS, http://www.cerfis.it/), with administrative with headquarters in DICEAA;
International Center for Research on Mathematics and Complex Systems Mechanics (Centro internazionale di ricerca per la Matematica e la Meccanica dei Sistemi Complessi, M&MOCS, http://memocs.univaq.it), with headquarters in DICEAA

Within the frame of Civil Engineering, DICEAA carries out its activities with regards to design, construction, maintenance, safety and monitoring of structures (i.e. civil structures, hydraulic and maritime structures, embankments and foundations, roads, bridges, railways, harbors, airports, etc..) with particular attention paid to the design and seismic upgrading of existing building and monumental heritage. Typical tools used by DICEAA to reach its goals are mathematical and physical modeling aimed to describe the mechanical and dynamic behavior of materials, structures, soil and water and of their mutual interactions.


Master, Environmental Engineering, 2 years, Eng., ITA, 120,

http://www.ing.univaq.it/cdl/mostra_corso.php?codice=I4R

Within the frame of Environmental Engineering, DICEAA is involved in the design, construction and maintenance of civil structures aimed to increase the public health and to protect landscape and coasts as well as to limit environmental risks. Moreover, DICEAA is involved in the study, the survey and physical, chemical, geological, geomorphologic and biological monitoring of environmental parameters, including their statistical analyses; in the development of novel geomatics techniques and mathematical modeling aimed to assess the environmental risk related to civil engineering projects; in the development of early warning systems, including tsunamis; in the activities to be carried out within the integrated coastal zone and environment management; in the integrated depuration and treatment of waste water and solids; in the reclamation of polluted areas including marine sediments.

Bachelor Degree in Civil and Envinromental Engineering


http://www.ing.univaq.it/studenti/guide/2017-2018/Guida_Ingegneria_2017-18.pdf?time=26

The bachelor degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering aims to form technicians with an accademic education, able to accept and follow innovation, according the scientific and technological development. It aims, so, to give a good base education, a large engineering support and a professional competence which, according to the knowledge of technique and base instruments, give solutions to engineering problems about civil and environmental design. The integrated approach is focus on solid and structures mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, geotehnics and survey and monitoring of structures and infrastructure (Civil orientation) and environment defence, eco-compatible management of natural and anthropical resources, sustainability use of the territory, prevention and control of pollution phenomena (Environmental orientation).

La Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Edile-Architettura si  propone di creare una figura professionale che alla specifica capacità progettuale a livello architettonico e urbanistico accompagni la padronanza degli strumenti relativi alla fattibilità costruttiva dell’opera ideata, fino a poterne seguire con competenza la corretta esecuzione sotto il profilo estetico, funzionale e tecnico – economico. Si attua, pertanto, una integrazione in senso qualitativo della formazione storico – critica con quella scientifica, secondo una impostazione didattica che concepisce la progettazione come processo di sintesi, per conferire a tale figura professionale pieno titolo per operare, anche a livello europeo, nel campo della progettazione architettonica e urbanistica.

La Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Civile si propone di formare tecnici con preparazione universitaria di alto livello, con competenze atte a progettare e gestire attività complesse connesse con la progettazione e lo sviluppo dell’innovazione scientifica e tecnologica e con la promozione della ricerca in un ampio settore tecnico-scientifico.

La Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria per l’Ambiente e il Territorio si propone di formare tecnici con preparazione universitaria di alto livello, con competenze riguardanti gli aspetti legati all’inquinamento delle matrici aria, acqua e suolo, con particolare attenzione all’identificazione delle fonti di inquinamento e dei processi di trasporto, delle tecnologie finalizzate alla preservazione della salute pubblica.

Il corso si propone di far crescere e maturare l’attitudine allo studio e alla ricerca scientifica di alto livello negli ambiti disciplinari e sulle tematiche sopra elencati. In riferimento al curriculum in Ingegneria Civile e Ambientale, data la vulnerabilità sismica ed idrogeologica del territorio italiano, il corso si propone di promuovere una serie di ricerche originali e innovative sui criteri e le metodologie da seguire, per una corretta gestione e protezione delle costruzioni e del territorio dai rischi idrogeologici e sismici, facendo in particolare riferimento alle reali problematiche legate alla ricostruzione del centro storico aquilano a seguito del sisma del 6 aprile 2009. In riferimento al curriculum in Ingegneria Edile-Architettura, il corso propone di promuovere ricerche nell’ambito dei diversi settori scientifico-disciplinari concorrenti al profilo dell’Ingegnere Edile – Architetto, in modo da favorire anche approfondimenti nell’ambito dei campi di interesse di ciascun settore disciplinare, includendo approcci più complessi a carattere multidisciplinare o interdisciplinare anche nel quadro articolato dei processi di ricostruzione del territorio e dei suoi sistemi antropizzati. L’obiettivo generale è la formazione di dottori di ricerca con un profilo scientifico-tecnico di alto livello, in grado di sviluppare ricerche e affrontare problemi tecnici connessi ad attività più strettamente professionali, negli ambiti curriculari in cui si struttura il corso di dottorato.
