The MSc Civil Engineering and Construction is a unique and particularly contemporary course of study, that encompasses knowledge from all areas related to the Civil Engineer profession and includes modules that teach the latest industry developments and their application on real Engineering problems. Its aim is to equip students with the necessary technical skills and theoretical background for the design and construction of new, complex infrastructures or the reinforcement of existing constructions.
At the same time, the programme provides students the opportunity to carry out their own research, under the supervision of experienced tutors, which can lead to publications in academic journals and participation in international conferences, or be used by collaborating companies during the design and construction of real projects.
The course can be completed in 1 year (full-time October start), in 1,5 year (full-time February start) or in 2 years (part-time). It includes six 20-credit modules and a diploma thesis of 60 credits. The modules are delivered on a semester basis.
Students specialise on contemporary applications of the Civil Engineering science, such as sustainable infrastructure design, flood risk assessment, sustainable construction materials and methods, environmental risk assessment, project management strategies & techniques, anti-seismic design of steel and reinforced concrete structures, earthquake engineering.
A significant advantage of this course is that as part of their final thesis, students work at a high research level and – under the supervision of experienced academics – produce projects that can lead to publication in international conferences.
