Creating and managing civil engineering solutions in a way that works for people and society
Is raising the dikes the only way to reduce flood risk, or are there smarter, cheaper solutions? How do you install a resilient electricity grid in a hurricane zone? Which factors do you have to keep in mind to ensure that new roads or structures will endure the effects of climate change? How do you secure and balance the many interests of the government, residents, companies, or the environment in such large projects? If questions like these fascinate you, then the three-year, English-taught Bachelor’s programme Civil Engineering is the right choice for you.
In the Bachelor’s programme Civil Engineering you will acquire both the technical and non-technical knowledge you need to take on complex civil engineering challenges. You will learn everything a civil engineer needs to know in order to design, construct and manage large projects in construction & infrastructure, water management, and traffic & transport. You will also become an expert in the many important organizational and non-technical issues involved in such projects, from legal and administrative aspects to communication, project and process management.
