University of Miami College of Engineering and Università di Bologna Innovative Dual-Degree Program

The University of Miami College of Engineering (UMCoE) and Università di Bologna (UNIBO) have a collaborative dual-degree program that provide new opportunities for students to build the skills needed to tackle the most important civil and environmental challenges of our time.

This program is through the Honors Center of Italian Universities (H2CU), an exchange with a select group of Universities in Italy. The UMCoE Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental (CAE) signed an agreement in 2013 and this dual-degree program fuels innovation and fosters collaboration on a global scale.

“This dual-degree program provides students with a true global education, offering them a chance to work with partners around the world on new opportunities. Through this partnership UM and Bologna prepare leaders who will make a real difference in civil and environmental engineering,” says Jean-Pierre Bardet, professor and dean of UMCoE. “Through this program, students will experience two different academic and research cultures, which transform their problem-solving capabilities and ultimately encourage closer research collaboration among both institutions.”

Under the dual-degree program, both UMCoE and UNIBO have agreed to establish an integrated two-year (four-semester) program, which students will study for a period of two semesters at each institution in the fields of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Upon completion, Italian students who would be in their fifth year of studies can be admitted to CAE for that fifth year which, at the same time, serves to complete a master of science (MS) at UMCoE. In addition, UM students would earn a laurea magistrale (LM) or second degree from UNIBO.

To be admitted to the program, students must be accepted to both UMCoE and UNIBO independently.
