ET - Civil Engineering

In the field of civil engineering, the Faculty of Engineering Technology offers three degree programmes: BSc in Civil Engineering, MSc in Civil Engineering and Management and MSc in Construction Management and Engineering. These programmes focus on three core themes: construction, transport and water. Graduates will have learned how to systematically map out complex problems, such as the possibility of flooding in a certain area, how to build models for predicting the effects certain measures will have and how to design complex projects, such as a subway junction in the heart of Amsterdam or an airport at sea. An important part of the programme is also dedicated to the management of these building processes for such designs. The modules and courses offered to exchange students are all part of the regular programmes, whether in civil engineering or other. This means that many of these modules and courses are building on knowledge from modules and courses taught in earlier phases of that same programme. Before you start selecting your modules or courses, please familiarise yourself with the terminology and structure of our educational system.

Note:
Regarding your background (BSc/MSc) & the course level you can choose (BSc/MSc): bachelor students have to select BSc modules and master students can select both BSc modules or MSc courses. It is not possible to select only some parts of a module.
Regarding your background (study field) & the subjects of the courses you can choose: please read this text.
Admittance to any module or course is always subject to fulfilment of the pre-requisites of that module or course.
