Have an important role in the development of the climate-friendly solutions of the future

Do you want to develop technological climate-friendly solutions for construction, cities, and infrastructure? Then a Civil Engineering degree might be something for you.

As a civil engineer, you will help to design and build the future urbanised world. You will play an important role in the development of climate-friendly solutions for buildings, bridges, cities, and infrastructure. You will learn to incorporate the UN's global goals and sustainability into the solutions you create. Whether it is for buildings, urban planning, bridges, or modern facades.

What will I learn?

Among other things, you will learn to develop, design, calculate and project using computer design as well as test your design in laboratories, apply recognised theories and scientific methods, handle complex and development-oriented situations, work project-oriented and incorporate the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The programme provides you with knowledge about mathematics, statics, materials science, digital construction, building installations, energy and indoor climate, resilience and sustainability, facades and constructions, and much more.

You will be trained to work across traditional professional boundaries and gain an understanding of ‘total design’. You will gain competencies within, for example, building design, infrastructure, urban planning, project and construction management, facade design and digital design.

How is the programme structured?

The programme consists of a combination of theoretical courses and practical project work. Each semester is based on a main theme. All semesters work with sustainability and digitalisation, as a recurring theme.

The first semester focuses on sustainability and building design. In the second semester, the main theme is building technology and building design, the third semester is focused on digitisation and urban development. In your fourth semester, the main theme is construction engineering and digital design. The fifth semester is a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, you also have the opportunity to study this semester abroad. In the sixth semester, you will write your bachelor project, based on all your knowledge from the previous semesters.

Can I continue my studies?

The bachelor programme lasts three years, after which you take the two-year master programme to become a civil engineer. From the bachelor programme, you can continue your studies and, for example, take a MSc in Civil Engineering.

What can I become?

You will be trained for jobs in planning, design, engineering and execution of building and construction projects in consulting engineering firms, architectural firms, material manufacturers, public administrations, property developers or construction companies. You can, for example, get a job as a specialist, consultant, designer, project manager or construction manager.

Why you should study Civil Engineering...

  • You will learn to incorporate the UN's Sustainable Development Goals into solutions
  • You will be able to develop and shape the constructions of the future
  • You will have good career opportunities
