After getting your Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, you can further specialise by completing a master’s. This is what most graduates choose. A few join the job market straight away or start their own business.
Most graduates choose to continue studying at UT: around 70% continue on to one of our master’s. With your bachelor’s diploma, you are directly admissible to the programmes mentioned below. If you want to complete a different master’s at UT, such as Mechanical Engineering or Industrial Engineering and Management, you will be required to do a pre-master’s.
other Master’s, elsewhere in the Netherlands or abroad
Of course, with your Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, you can also continue on to Master’s at other universities, in the Netherlands or abroad. You will be admissible to most Civil Engineering Master’s with your Bachelor’s degree.
A Master’s in social sciences, such as Psychology, Philosophy or Business Administration, is also possible. A tailored pre-master’s is usually necessary. Some students combine their post-graduate studies with our Dutch-taught Master’s in Science Education and Communication, which allows you to work in education, among other things.
Most students do not enter the job market until they have a Master's degree, although you can do so after your Bachelor's. Thanks to the inter- and multidisciplinary nature of our Civil Engineering Bachelor's degree and the subsequent Master's at UT, you can pursue many different directions. You will be well-prepared for positions that focus on building and construction, as well as the organizational aspects surrounding them. There is a lot of demand for people who feel at home in both areas, both in The Netherlands and abroad.
You can also start your own business with a solution that you have developed. UT is recognised as ‘the most entrepreneurial university’ in the Netherlands. We are strong in applying expertise to meaningfully influence society. Together with our students, we like to work with the innovation specialists from Novel-T, who like to tap into promising innovative business cases.
