After getting your Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, you can further specialize by completing a Master’s programme. 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 the UT: around 70% continue on to one of our Master’s programmes. With your Bachelor’s diploma you are directly admissible to the programmes mentioned below. If you want to complete a different Master’s programme at the UT, such as Mechanical Engineering or Industrial Engineering and Management, you will be required to do a pre-Master’s programme.
other Master’s programmes, elsewhere in the Netherlands or abroad
Of course, with your Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering you can also continue on to Master’s programmes at other universities, in the Netherlands or abroad. You will be admissible to most Civil Engineering Master’s programmes with your Bachelor’s degree.
A Master’s programme in social sciences, such as Psychology, Philosophy or Business Administration, is also possible. A tailored pre-Master’s programme is usually necessary. Some students combine their post-graduate studies with our Dutch-taught Master’s programme 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 programmes at the 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. The UT is recognized 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 in to promising innovative business cases.
