2 - State, interpret and solve problems in the engineering area in order to exercise the profession of superior technician with analysis skills, critical thinking and innovative sense;
3 - Research and select the necessary information to support civil engineering solutions;
4 - Contact with the construction industry in the preparation of procedures/public tenders, budgeting of works, sizing of yards and definition of equipment to support the work.


Planning and management of construction works is one of the activities that make up the most general activity normally referred to as preparation and control of construction works.
Planning works is to make a "plan" of activities and index them to the calendar. Basically, it is to decompose the work into elementary "tasks" or "activities" and to define for each one, start and end dates and time offs. Planning also results in much marginal information.
Planning without control is not justified. Controlling the planning of the work is to remove information (markings) from the work in progress that allows successively updating the existing plans and providing useful information for the future development of the work.

Assesssment methods and criteria:

Rating Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: A
Assessment Methodology: Normal Season - Performing a frequency with the weight of 25% and three practical assignments with weights of 20%, 30% and 25% respectively.
  1. Students who score less than 6.0 in the frequency (in the Normal Season) will be classified as "Failed" but may take the exams (Season of Appeal and Special Season).
  2. The class assignments are assigned individually (there may be different grades for different students in the same group) and if necessary the teacher may perform oral tests to clarify the classification to be given to each student.
  3. In the Season of Appeal (and the Season of Special), the exam is worth 25% of the final assessment, ie only the frequency is recoverable. The parts of the valuation corresponding to the works are not recoverable.
  4. Students who achieve a grade (Normal Season / Appeal / Special) of at least 18.5 will have a provisional grade of 18, but may take an oral exam to qualify for a final grade higher than 18 (if not the final grade will be 18).
