The ITA-CET committee endorses several post-graduate courses on tunnelling world wide.

Post-graduate courses endorsed by ITA

 

The need of experts involved in D&B and TBM tunnelling as well as tunnel work site management is rapidly increasing throughout the world.

In this course, that has now reached its 10th edition, University lectures are merged with lectures/presentations by experts from construction companies, machine producers, design companies and professionals, to provide the multidisciplinary knowledge that is necessary to work in this sector.

The students who have attended the Post-graduate Master Course are of interest for design firms, construction companies involved in tunnelling and for tunnelling tools suppliers as well as producers of Tunnel Boring Machines and public administrations.

Attendance period: The next course  will be held from January 2016 to December 2016. The class lessons last 6/8 hours a day, 5 days a week. The official language of the course is English.
ECTS (European credit transfer system): 60 (including: class lesson, practical training and final report work).

At the initiative of the French Association of Tunnels and Underground Space (AFTES), INSA Lyon and ENTPE in partnership with AFTES and the Centre d'Etudes des Tunnels created this Specialized Master designed to meet the high expectations of the French and international markets in training specialists in the design, construction and operation of underground structures.

This course gives general civil engineers specialized training enabling  their rapid evolution to positions of responsibility, whether in project management or operations. In February 2011, this Specialized Master obtained the accreditation of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles. It  has also obtained endorsement from ITA  and support from the Underground Works Union (FNTP).

Currently in its 10th year, this Master is organized by AETOS (the Spanish Association of underground Works), CICCP (Association of Civil Engineers) and UNED (the Spanish Open University).
 
The objective of this one-year ITA endorsed course is to provide students with a high level of instruction in tunnelling and underground works that will grant them access to the labour market in this specific technical field. Students will achieve sound knowledge in planning and design and the managment and execution of works.
 
An additional objective is to provide supplementary specialized instruction for students who envisage a career in research and/or teaching after the course.
 
The Master course runs from January to October and is conducted in Spanish, although a certain number of specific conferences may be held in English.

The On-line Certificate in Tunneling run by the University of Colorado Boulder is open to students with an MS and BS in civil engineering, engineering geology or mining engineering, who want to obtain a working knowledge of tunnel design and construction by applying the fundamentals acquired in their BS and MS degrees.

This on-line course can be started at any time. Its duration depends on the student’s own pace, but must be completed within 4 years. The course comprises 11 modules, with homework assignments and a three-month internship at a construction site. A final face-to face evaluation with the course director is organized at the end of the course.

Course director: Dr. Fulvio Tonon, P.E., Ph.D.
