Environmental Civil Engineering


The sustainable development of the country requires professionals who are able to lead the environmental vision within organizations and thus ensure the reduction of current and future environmental problems. To achieve this, the Civil Environmental Engineering (ICA) study program of the USM provides excellent training in environmental sciences and process engineering, as well as the development of skills to function adequately in diverse multicultural contexts, including the use of the English language in a professional context.

These tools will enable the USM ICA to propose innovative, economical and/or appropriate solutions to the interdisciplinary environmental challenges facing modern society.
