Program description

Master Civil Engineering

Planning, Decision-making, Building

It is difficult to imagine our everyday lives without bridges, tunnels, hydroelectric power plants, road and rail networks, or residential, office and industrial buildings. All of these are subject to increasingly higher demands on standards and functionality, because our modern society requires reliable, efficient and safe infrastructure.


The Master’s degree program builds upon the knowledge acquired in the Bachelor’s degree program. Students select two out of six possible subject areas. A large range of electives supplement these, making it possible to either specialize further or to broaden out into a wider area of knowledge. Independent project work and seminar papers foster the working methods expected in civil engineering and reinforce the scientific work. Topical construction projects or research topics are commonly used as examples.

  • Choice of 2 specializations
  • Electives, seminar papers and project work
  • Master's thesis (16 weeks)


  • Construction and Maintenance Management
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Structural Engineering;
  • Transport Systems
  • Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management
  • Materials and Mechanics
