In-company internships are a key part of your training. Gaining experience after learning skills during your degree is the best way to enter the job market. There are two types of internships: curricular (included in your curriculum) and extracurricular (those completed voluntarily).

To take part in curricular internships in companies, you must have passed 50% of the credits and enrolled for the subject before starting the internship. These internships are conducted with monitoring by the company and by the internship professor, as well as intermediate and final assessment reports.

If you want to gain more your work experience before finishing your university training, you can complete extracurricular internships. You may complete an extracurricular internship during any academic year, but remember that internships are complementary to your studies, so the more knowledge you have acquired over the course of your degree programme, the better you will be able to benefit from your internship experience.


As a result of the inclusion of BIM in the curriculum, recruitment of students and graduates in companies that want to introduce this methodology has increased. 100% of the civil engineering students from the last graduating class are now working in the sector.

Yes, civil engineers use a significant amount of math in their day-to-day work. Civil engineering involves designing and constructing buildings, roads, bridges, airports, water treatment plants, and other infrastructure systems. To design these structures, civil engineers use mathematical principles such as calculus, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics – all of which is covered within the curriculum of our Degree in Civil Engineering at Universidad Europea.
