Course content of the Masters programme

“Civil Engineering is the practice of improving and maintaining the built environment to enhance the quality of life for the present and future generation.”
Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)

This Masters course encompasses the planning and construction of buildings, objects and facilities. You will gain in-depth knowledge about design, construction and maintenance of the built environment such as bridges, roads and dams. As a student, you choose a specialised subject area, such as general, structural, or geo-technical civil engineering.

Admission requires a Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering or a similar degree in a related field of study. However, they depend on the particular university; therefore you should inform yourself about these requirements at the very university of your choice.

The standard period of study for a Master of Civil Engineering lasts four semesters and upon completion, you are awarded the academic title of Master of Science or Master of Engineering.
