The Master program in Civil Engineering prepares its graduates for well-positioned and effective roles in industry, government, and academia. Main program objectives are:

  • Conferring advanced academic qualifications, in particular with a view to developing research capabilities in the different disciplines of civil engineering related sciences     
  • Conducting research that relates to any academic discipline at Faculty of Civil Engineering and to the application of scientific findings in the fields
  • Considering ethics and community needs in all research activities

For specialization, students can choose among the majors of:

  • General Civil Engineering 
  • Structural Engineering
  • Transportation Sciences Engineering
  • Water Resources and Treatment Engineering. 

The study programs Master of Science in Civil Engineering consists of 4 semesters. Students earn a total of 120 ECTS credit points according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System.
