Enginyeria de la Construcció

http://futur.upc.edu/EC

The group focus on the life cycle of large modern civil infrastructure projects from a global perspective, involving planning; design; construction; service life and exploitation; maintenance and dismantling and recycling, taking into account economical, social, environmental, quality and health and safety issues. This group has a global perspective and targets to develop management methods and technology to be applied in any civil infrastructure whatsoever (including highways, railway lines, bridges, dams, channels, tunnels, underground structures and civil buildings).
