Description

During the studies, engineers are trained for various tasks in construction and civil engineering. The primary focus is on structural design and building production (project management). One can also have studies focused on project management in infrastructure (e.g. road construction and municipal technology). Other typical tasks for construction engineers are building damage and surveys, building design, property finance and management, and duties in the state or municipality.

The education promotes knowledge about socially, economically and ecologically sustainable solutions, with emphasis on sustainable construction, equality, and efficient, circular economy.

Education is based on applied natural sciences, but in itself the profession is often about managing people and projects. Leadership and project management play a big role. The construction engineering education has a more even gender distribution and the construction industry has a pronounced interest in working for women opportunities to work in the industry.

The program contains a large element of internship and company placement, which benefits the students' opportunities to quickly establish themselves in the professional world and be able to do what is required. A strength of the education is that you have good opportunities to get jobs in companies that need multi-lingual engineers and work with exports. Experience has shown that the training has provided good skills for starting private companies in the construction industry, and for leading them.

The studies within the program are realized through lectures and exercises. The syllabus can be flexibly adapted individually with courses from other programs and studies abroad. In general, the program contains basic studies, specialist subjects, internships and elective courses. Digital competence plays a significant role, but also mathematics and a good understanding of construction physics, as well as project management and communication in multidisciplinary collaboration. The content of the training is adapted to new requirements and needs, e.g. regarding energy efficiency, digital project management or building materials
