In this degree program, students are trained for many different tasks related to construction and a sustainable development of the community's built environment as construction supervisors. This means building new and renovating existing buildings.

The construction supervisor's work is technology-focused but also very human-oriented. Construction supervisors often work with different project and supervisor tasks, at the same time with many people in different roles. Some construction supervisors also work in various sales tasks within construction, so human contacts are important in the construction supervisor's profession.

In addition to building technology and materials, the studies include: economics, environmental aspects, leadership, project work and individual work as well as sustainability in construction and social development. In this degree program, students deepen themselves in project and work management, ie learning to lead construction that results in well-built sustainable houses and buildings, buildings to be proud of the rest of their lives.

The studies in the program are realized through lectures and exercises, both in groups and independently. It also includes excursions and compulsory internships, and individual company-based studies in management for all students. Partly included are virtual studies. The company-placed studies in work management are generally placed in medium-sized or large construction companies.

The central part of the studies is that they prepare you to have a central role in the construction industry in creating a sustainable and climate-smart society. Issues related to sustainability and a climate-smarter society are included in many of our courses, sometimes as central content, sometimes as a framework. Of the UN's 17 goals for sustainable development according to AGENDA 2030, numbers 3 (Good health and well-being), 11 (Sustainable cities and communities), 12 (Responsible consumption and production) and 13 (Climate action) are most central in our education. Objectives 6 (Clean water and sanitation), 8 (Decent work and economic growth) and 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure) are also treated in particular in our courses.

Characteristic of the construction supervisor's profession is that you have to work with many people and in the long term with issues of crucial importance for sustainable development. The result of the work is lasting for many decades.


The student has knowledge in building and civil engineering to understand and master demanding work management in the construction industry, as well as other tasks in investigation, planning and production, as well as structural engineering at the usual level of difficulty. The student masters current information technology that is needed in the tasks and application of circular economy in construction.

The student understands his central role in creating a sustainable and climate-smart society. The student also understands the importance of work management, as well as that construction work is carried out according to plans and good building practice so that the result is stable, safe, healthy and ecologically sustainable buildings.

The student has a good understanding of business and financial management and has the ability to develop their skills and to assist employees in developing and cooperating in multicultural contexts. The student understands and masters all the tasks above, both for new construction and for developing the built environment throughout its life cycle.
