The opportunities offered by an international degree programme

Partner Universities


The Dual Degrees are offered as an option for students enrolled in the Master's Programme of Civil Engineering

Participation in one of the Dual Degree programmes implies attending courses at the University of Bologna during the first year and at the partner university during the second year. At the end of the programme, students will acquire the Master degree from both the Universities attended (the University of Bologna and the host university). The title will be thus valid in both countries.

The agreements in place are with the following partners:

- Université de Liège, Belgium (applications to be submitted thorugh the Erasmus+ call, see below)

- Tongji University, Shanghai, China

- University of Miami, USA 

The University might provide some fellowships to cover the expenses.

Students attending Dual Degree programmes will pay fees to the University of Bologna both for the first and for the second year.

The selection of students to be included in the Dual Degree programme is based on merit and is made according to a call issued every year and reserved to students enrolled in the first year of the Master's Programme.
