Master in Civil and Architectural Engineering
The Master’s programme provides students with the opportunity to specialise in the fields of Civil Engineering or Architectural Engineering, with both disciplines emphasising the necessary integration of technology and societal aspects, such as environmental issues, sustainable development and social responsibility.
The programme starts with fundamental, compulsory courses before moving into elective and more advanced-level courses.The Civil Engineering track is devoted to techniques for designing, constructing and maintaining roads, streets, railway track, bridges and tunnels; the Architectural Engineering track is concerned with the engineering design and analysis of buildings with emphasis on system-level performance and in a life cycle perspective.
The Master’s thesis should relate to an interesting issue within the field of study, focusing on the investigation and analysis of a problem. The assignment may deal with problems from the industry or issues that are relevant to current research. The student should show their awareness of societal and ethical aspects, including economical and social issues and ecologically sustainable development.
The building sector has a long-term impact on the built environment and the Civil and Architectural Engineering programme meets a well-recognised need for engineers with the knowledge and ability to design and construct infrastructure, residential housing and workplaces with an optimal technology in terms of economy and environmental impact. This Master’s programme will provide its graduates with an internationally required competence, and excellent future value in both research and industry.
The students will be prepared for a professional career as a consultant in the construction industry, as well as in public authorities, such as the road or rail administrations. Furthermore, the students will be able to pursue an academic research career.
