The Master’s in Civil Engineering and Management is a two-year programme worth 120 credits. The full-time programme is taught entirely in English and focuses extensively on both the technical and non-technical aspects of the planning, design, realization and maintenance of civil engineering projects and systems. You will be awarded a Master of Science (MSc) degree upon graduation.

You can tailor the programme to suit your interests by choosing from the 36 modules we offer or combine them with modules offered by related programmes. Bear in mind that restrictions may apply depending on your educational background and previous experience. Up to 15 credits of your programme may be devoted to addressing gaps in your previous knowledge.
You will set up your own individual programme together with your tutor. You can tailor the programme in line with your own ambitions by choosing a particular profile within one of our four specializations:
Integrated Civil Engineering Systems
- Civil Engineering Structures
- Modelling and Forecasting
- Smart Cities
Construction Management and Engineering
- Design Management in Construction
- Markets and Organisations in Construction
Transport Engineering and Management
- Transport Planning and Modelling
- Smart Transport Systems
Water Engineering and Management
- Integrated Water Management
- River and Coastal Engineering
After choosing your specilization, you will be able to choose a certain profile depending on your interest. As a student, this will give you enormous flexibility and a wide range of courses to choose from.
Each profile consists of:
- Profile Courses (30 - 37,5 EC mandatory courses; depending on the profile)
- Profile Electives (a minimum of 30 EC or 37,5 EC from a profile-dependent set of electives)
- Fee electives (maximum 15 EC)
- Preparation MSc-thesis (7,5 EC) + MSc-thesis project (30 EC)
Students with an admission-level qualification other than a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering can use the free elective courses to address any deficiencies.
Once you have passed all of the ourses of the Civil Engineering and Management programme you can start on your final graduation project, which culminates in your Master’s thesis. The main objective of the MSc-thesis project is to independently carry out a substantial individual research or design project in one of the sub-fields of Civil Engineering and Management at a level that is commensurate with a university Master’s programme.
