Set up your own programme

You will set up your own individual programme together with your tutor. A programme consists of at least 11 courses (of 7.5 credits each), one course to prepare you for your graduation project (7.5 credits) and the graduation project itself, which includes your Master’s thesis (30 credits). You can tailor the programme in line with your own ambitions by specializing in Water Engineering & Management, Transportation Engineering & Management or Construction Process Management. Other combinations may be considered in consultation with the Study Advisor.

Of the 11 core courses, at least 10 should be chosen from the list below. You may choose the eleventh course from electives provided by the Faculty of Engineering Technology or another faculty, provided that the course is part of a Master’s programme and does not overlap with the other courses in the Civil Engineering and Management programme.

The following general requirements apply:

  • Two courses must be at the advanced level (designated with an asterisk (*) in the list)
  • At least one course must have an advanced design character (designated with ‘o’).

Students with an admission-level qualification other than a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering may replace no more than two of the 7.5-credit courses with catch-up courses to address any deficiencies.
