Field studies are paid for, whether you do them or not, and not having the necessary knowledge in such studies can be very expensive in Maritime Works”

This Postgraduate Certificate will present the development of the Geotechnical Recommendations for the Design of Maritime and Port Works ROM 0.5-05, of mandatory use for the geotechnical design of maritime and port works.

It will also include a series of examples of geotechnical solutions of various port works carried out in order to familiarize the student with contrasted and safe actions.

Geotechnical engineering is essential in practically all civil engineering activities, especially in port works, which is even more important considering the complexity and magnitude of such works. The student who wants to specialize in port infrastructures should also specialize in Basic Field Studies, Bathymetric Control .

A complete, in-depth look at the most current criteria for field survey and bathymetric monitoring”

This Postgraduate Certificate in Basic Field Studies, Bathymetric Control contains the most complete and up-to-date educational program on the market. Its most notable features are:

  • The development of case studies presented by experts in Mechanical Engineering
  • The graphic, schematic, and practical contents with which they are created provide scientific and practical information on the disciplines that are essential for professional development
  • Practical exercises where self-assessment can be used to improve learning
  • Its special emphasis on innovative methodologies in Mechanical Engineering
  • Theoretical lessons, questions to the expert, debate forums on controversial topics, and individual reflection assignments
  • Content that is accessible from any fixed or portable device with an Internet connection

A quality program that will allow you not only to follow the specialization, but also to have complementary support and information banks available"

Its teaching staff includes professionals from the field of civil engineering, who contribute their work experience to this training, as well as renowned specialists from reference societies and prestigious universities.

The multimedia content, developed with the latest educational technology, will provide the professional with situated and contextual learning, i.e., a simulated environment that will provide an immersive program designed to learn in real situations.

This program is designed around Problem-Based Learning, whereby the professional must try to solve the different professional practice situations that arise throughout the program. For this purpose, the professional will be assisted by an innovative interactive video system created by renowned and experienced experts in Basic Field Studies, Bathymetric Control .
