(Civil Engineering)

Two-year Master of Science course

The Master program in Civil Engineering explores selected areas of civil engineering in greater depth. The course is structured on the “3 out of 5 plus 1” principle: students may choose three out of the five blocks offered for in-depth study and in addition designate a major. Majors on offer are

  • Supporting structures (structural engineering)
  • Groundworks (geotechnical engineering, foundation engineering)
  • Harbor construction and coastal defenses (hydraulic engineering, coastal engineering)

Studies in the major include an extensive project thesis. Students can also choose from a wide range of compulsory elective subjects in order to specialize further and/or broaden their training. The choice of consolidation subjects and majors will be based on personal interests and/or career objectives. Recommendations will be made accordingly. The fourth course semester is for preparing the Master’s thesis.
