Key Learning Outcomes

The Degree Programme of Construction Engineering aims to give the students the basic skills needed to work in various practical tasks in construction engineering and production as well as maintenance. In addition to technology, the education emphasises applied ICT, environmental considerations as well as the abilities for entrepreneurship and internationality. All students study the basics of project management.
During the first two years of studies, the students study the basic studies, scope 103 cr. The students with a vocational school background have more mathematics and physics than the students with a matriculation exam, which explains why the number of credits is different for the basic studies. This does not, however, increase the scope of the degree. The difference is taken into account as offering more options in other studies.
During the spring of the second year of studies, the students select one of the four specialisation options. The professional specialisation studies, scope 77, give the students the opportunity to focus on a specific construction field and enable them to construct their studies in a meaningful manner. The specialisation studies are mainly studied during the last two years of studies. Each specialisation option has its own schedule. The students can complete at least 5 cr worth of specialisation studies as project studies, e.g. doing R&D projects for companies. The students may select the 15 credits worth of free-choice studies from free-choice studies, the courses offered by other specialisation studies or other from other university level studies.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples

A construction project requires seamless collaboration between the various parties involved. In many tasks, the prerequisite for coping is combining economical thinking with technical expertise. Success in the field requires customer-based operation methods and service mentality, as well as applying ICT. In addition to mathematics and science, the working life requires management, relationship, communication and negotiation skills, as well as value competence. The participation in international and multicultural projects requires strong and vast expertise, language skills as well as knowledge of different cultures and the ability to work in diverse environments.

Access to Further Studies
