Aim of Postgraduate Program is to cover the needs of market of Engineers for knowledge, so that they are capable to execute analysis and design of existing structures. Specifically, Graduates of MSc will be able to perform the assessment and the retrofitting of structures (Reinforced Concrete, Steel, or masonry structures) using Eurocodes, Greek Code of Structural Interventions (KANEPE) and suitable software such as Scada and Instant, as it is required today by the Building Authorization offices in order to approve the design study for additional construction or retrofit of existing structures.
Furthermore, the graduates of Postgraduate Program will be in position to do Energy Upgrade and Bioclimatic design of structures using material friendly to the environment and aiming at the Sustainable development.
Thus, during the study of Postgraduate Program are examined extensively five thematic regions, as follows:
- The earthquake design of Reinforced Concrete or Steel or Masonry or Stonemasonry structures with the use of Eurocodes or Greek codes.
- The simulation and the analysis of civil engineering structures with the use of software such as finite element analysis, Static or Dynamic Analysis, linear or non-linear analysis.
- The energy upgrade and Bioclimatic design of structures.
- Seismic upgrade of structures with strengthening or repair with materials friendlily to the sustainable development.
The Project Management of structures with simultaneous assessment of its remaining strength with use of direct or non-destructive methods and the estimate of all nature of losses (human, social, economic and technical) due to seismic excitation.
