The Doctoral Degree in Anthropic Sciences, is an interdepartmental and multidisciplinary program offered by the Center for Design and Construction Sciences, the Departments of Construction and Structures, Habitat Design, Geotechnics and Hydraulics, as well as Theory and Methods . This postgraduate course offers greater flexibility as a tutoring system, which strengthens research activities.

General objective

To train high level researchers from the humanist perspective with a strong social commitment and an active concern about the environment, focusing the researcher on the problems of the anthropic areas of specific regional contexts in a systemic and critical way in order to contribute to their sustainable development.

Specific objectives

  • To scientifically address the diagnostics and forecasts that support the environmental and territorial order, the design and the constructive-infrastructural development of the regional context.
  • Generate new knowledge tending to solve the social needs of the anthropic areas in such a way that they respond to the demands of the productive sector and in favor of the environmental balance (see the section on Rationale).
  • Contribute to generating knowledge that supports the development of the technical disciplines applicable to the regional issues listed at the beginning of this section.
  • Contribute to the reduction of the technological dependence that the country suffers.
