DIPARTIMENTO DI ARCHITETTURA, INGEGNERIA DELLE COSTRUZIONI E AMBIENTE COSTRUITO
The Master will offer the opportunity of a stage (550 working hours) in some renowned
firm: many large general contractors, engineering firms, and producers have already
confirmed to us to be extremely interested in employing technicians equipped with the set
of skills the Master will provide.
The need for technicians (engineers and/or architects) who become skilled in managing
contracts and claims, and who can perform a delay analysis in accordance with
established international standards is ever more urgent among the most important
general contractors in Italy and abroad. Our globalized world requires that professionals
involved in managing claims, construction contracts and disputes could master complex
technical issues and at the same time be conversant with all the legal aspects involved.
It is crucial for the professionals who have a technical background to become
acquainted with the "rules of the game" on the international arena. Therefore, they
should get to know the basic principles of Civil and Common Law as well as of
International Arbitration together with the most common standards for international
contracts (FIDIC, JCT, NEC, AAA) and the many complex technical and legal issues
standing behind delay analysis and construction claim management.
They should get to know how to deal effectively with the most important takeholders in
any international construction project: international owners both private (developers,
foundations, real-estate funds, etc.) and public (governments, public
authorities, etc.), engineering firms, general contractors and suppliers, banks,
investment funds and sovereign funds. During this specializing Master our alumni will
get to know the basics of forensic engineering in international projects: from claim to
dispute, dispute boards, arbitration, with a specific focus on the ICC arbitration rules
but also on the Milan Arbitration Chamber rules and practices.
Candidates with a Master of Science in Engineering, Architecture and similar scientific
disciplines could be eligible. For those candidates who graduated abroad equivalent study titles in their countries and educational institutions will be accepted and evaluated.
