MSc in Civil Engineering

This master is jointly organised by Vrije Universiteit Brussel in collaboration with Université Libre de Bruxelles, leading to a joint master's degree.

A major objective of our programme is to develop an in-depth understanding of the main aspects of analysis and design of all kinds of constructions and to provide a solid knowledge of material technology. An important issue is the optimisation of the form of structures and the material selection, with due consideration of their environmental impact, sustainability and life-cycle cost. Several systems are considered: conventionally reinforced or pre-stressed, either in steel or concrete, as well as those composed of novel materials like fibre-reinforced material systems. You can also wish to specialise in water resources. Courses on different aspects of water resources management (rivers, urban water, groundwater, water quality) are offered in close collaboration with our Master of Water Resources Engineering programme....
