Civil Engineering
Sustainable Building Engineering

The aim of the programme is to develop a thorough understanding of the factors affecting the sustainability of buildings and to provide skills to design, build and manage healthy, energy efficient and durable buildings.
Career prospects
At the building site a sustainable building engineer is able to use recycled materials, minimize the waste flows and avoid damages to surrounding nature. As a facility manager, he/she knows how to reduce the use of energy and other resources, and where to locate new activities in a sustainable manner.

Work placement will focus on the new low carbon and low energy sectors, serving society’s need for real sustainable development, both in physical and social levels. Graduates may take export projects, international tasks as well as municipal and state energy development tasks. Other fields include; life cycle research, energy and environmental certification and facility management.

This new engineering degree will offer both general building engineering skills and the understanding of the principles of life cycle engineering in buildings. The student will learn the basics of civil engineering, indoor environment energy and skills in facility management.
The study programme contains a total of 240 credit units including the subjects mentioned above, elective studies, projects, work placement and a final thesis, usually commissioned by our partners in industry. A significant part (over 60 credits) of the studies will be carried out in real working life projects, starting from the first study year. An international exchange period can be included in the third year curriculum.
