Two additional postgraduate courses receive ITA-endorsement

20 July 2015

During the ITA-CET Committee meeting held in Dubrovnik in May, the decision was taken to give ITA endorsement to two additional post-graduate courses: the “Master in Tunnels and Underground Works” (Madrid) and the “On-line Certificate in Tunneling”, Colorado, Boulder.

Currently in its 10th year, the Master in Tunnels and Underground Works 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 management and execution of works. An additional objective is to provide 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. It is open to students who have a degree in civil engineering and mining or geology (4 years of higher education minimum).

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.
