Collaborating to plan and design efficient solutions for a resilient and sustainable future
Graduates of the Master's Programme in Civil Engineering make a lasting impact on the world as they launch careers in which they design and apply innovative solutions that foster the sustainability of buildings and transport systems.
Expertise in civil engineering is crucial for developing the safety, security, and environmental, social, and economic sustainability of our society. A master’s degree in civil engineering offers you a way to develop multidisciplinary expertise related to the built environment and sustainability. A career in civil engineering requires a broad understanding of phenomena related to the development of the built environment, strong problem-solving skills, and the ability to develop, implement and apply new technologies. Graduates with a master’s degree in civil engineering have a broad range of career opportunities, pursuing expert or executive-level careers in Finland or abroad. Potential employers include consulting companies, construction companies, the transport and logistics industry, public organizations at international, national, regional, and municipality levels, universities, and research institutes. You will earn a master’s degree in civil engineering by completing a two-year master’s program. At Tampere University, you have the opportunity to major in structural engineering or sustainable transport.
Structural engineering focuses on ensuring structural efficiency, safety, sustainability, and resilience for new and existing structures and buildings. Our master’s degree in structural engineering is designed to deliver a high level of knowledge in structural engineering, including engineering theory, design methodology, materials, and analysis tools. This program is ideal for those interested in pursuing a career as a structural engineer or design consultant. It combines science and mathematics with the practical elements of construction technology. The program prepares students to work in the field of structural engineering where they can apply their knowledge to real-world problems and challenges.
The program provides students with the opportunity to develop both theoretical and practical knowledge while making them aware of new developments in the field. The curriculum covers the specialist technical and computational skills necessary for today's construction industry and there's a strong relationship between the program and the industry. The structural analysis, engineering, and design skills are obtained from a core of required basic courses. In addition to the core courses, elective courses are offered that allow individuals to tailor to their professional goals and individual interests.
