Its blend of disciplines makes the Bachelor’s programme Civil Engineering at the University of Twente a challenging programme that will prepare you to be an all-round civil engineer. As in any Civil Engineering programme, you will, of course, learn things like how to calculate and build a bridge. But here you will also learn to map out the consequences of a project like that for people, companies or nature in the area.
You will get familiar with innovative construction or water management techniques, while also learning to identify circular and resilient solutions. You will spend three years immersing yourself in mathematics, physics, chemistry, mechanics, fluid dynamics and design subjects, but also in process management, communications and aspects such as environmental effects and management.
As a civil engineer from Twente, it is highly likely that your career will not just revolve around construction and technology, but that you will have a more interdisciplinary role, for example, as a project leader, as a manager or in Research & Development.
When you are a first-year student, you experience many new things. Here we start explaining at least a few of them.
