About UVA

GRAPE

THE GRAPE It was founded in 1971 and passed in recent years by a marked process of academic growth and obtained results highlights in recent evaluations of the Ministry of Education (MEC). In 2012, the institution has reached the track 4 of the MEC General Index of Courses (1-5), the highest reached by a private university in the country. Today, it occupies the seventh place in the ranking of the best private universities in the country, being the second best particular the state of Rio de Janeiro.

It offers 40 undergraduate and technological graduation, five master's degrees and more than 70 sensu post-graduation courses. In 2012, authorization was granted for the creation of the first doctoral university in the field of psychoanalysis, Health and Society, which had its first class in 2013.

With four campuses, three of them in the city of Rio de Janeiro - Tijuca, bar and center - and the fourth in Cabo Frio, in the Lakes Region, and a health center, the university is undergoing a period of significant investment in infrastructure.

The UVA offers postgraduate distance learning courses and dual certification programs, in partnership with American universities. The first courses are in conjunction with the University of Texas Arlington (UTA).

The course The Civil Engineering graduate course can be accomplished in five years (10 periods) and is structured to provide the classic theoretical foundations and the most modern advanced techniques applicable to problem solving in the area. The course provides the student with a solid background in the area of ​​operation, growing in scope due to the constant technological evolution of the modern world, highlighting the non-aggression to the environment and participation, increasing of civil engineers in management activities , management and planning. Every day, there are many and profound changes, due to the development of new materials and technologies, and the creation and adoption of new analytical methods, influenced by the use of computers. Therefore, the Civil Engineering field of activity has expanded and extrapolated the traditionally preferred areas (structures, geotechnical and transportation, water resources and construction materials). Following the innovations and trying to keep current graduation curriculum and teaching methods, the Civil Engineering course at UVA provides its students with technical visits and practical classes in geotechnical laboratories, building materials, topography, and computing means. Course features The course provides the student with a solid background in the area of ​​operation, growing in scope due to the constant technological evolution of the modern world, highlighting the non-aggression to the environment and participation, increasing of civil engineers in management activities, management and planning. Following the innovations and trying to keep updated curriculum of undergraduate and teaching methodologies, the Civil Engineering Course of UVA provides its students with technical visits and practical classes in Geotechnical Engineering laboratories, building materials, topography, and computing means. Differential UVA The course has Geotechnical Laboratory, Building Materials and Reinforced Concrete, and IT infrastructure composed of seven computer labs and two multimedia rooms; The Civil Engineering has four major fronts: Structures, Geotechnics and Roads, Water Resources and Building Materials. And constantly keeping up with the technological innovations, the Civil Engineering Course of UVA maintains its curriculum and updated teaching methodology. The course provides its students with technical visits and practical classes, following and practicing the technologies used by companies, allowing them a critical view of engineering problems, expanding their capacity to create and propose targeted and effective solutions. Supports competitiveness in the new economy, the Civil Engineering Course also provides its students with a set of complementary activities, scientific projects and projects carried out during the course Engineering and development of the monograph. The experience allows the engineer to the achievement of valued jobs. Graduation enables the professional to continue in academic life, whether as a student in continuing education and graduate either as teacher and researcher. [-]
