Greetings from the Director

On behalf of the UPC Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, I am pleased to welcome you to our website, a channel of communication and information not only open to our internal members, but to the rest of the university, the local community, and to the world in general.

The Department was set up in October 2015 and is the culmination of a restructuring process driven by the UPC Government Board and endorsed in its present form by the Civil Engineering community.

However, it is envisaged that, in agreement with all Department members and working in close conjunction with the UPC School of Civil Engineering, the Department will reach its final configuration through a dynamic and participatory process. In this way a format which will offer best possible academic functions and, ultimately, best possible service to society, will be established.

Excellence and leveraging all possible synergies in research, teaching, communication and management, with a modern approach and a focus on the future, must be key factors in defining the final Department model.

For the management of its activities, the Department has the support of the personnel in the Transversal Management Unit (UTGAC), which is the common management and services unit for the Civil Engineering community, located in the B2 and C2 buildings of the UPC Campus Nord.

Best regards on behalf of the Direction Team and all staff and members of the Department.

Alejandro Josa
Director of DECA
