Master of Science in Civil Engineering - Megastructure Engineering with Sustainable Resources

Objectives:

This Master enables students to acquire deeper knowledge in civil engineering with a specific focus on planning and constructing megastructures while using resources sustainably. Sustainability is increasingly important and the well-trained modern civil engineer must be able to judge and optimise civil structures and buildings while taking into account shortages in construction materials and energy resources. This dual focus on megastructures and sustainability sets us apart from other masters of civil engineering.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Analyse complex problems in structural and environmental civil engineering, plan strategies for their resolution, and apply up-to-date engineering knowledge and design methods to solve them.
  • Demonstrate a broad understanding of several areas of civil engineering and their interrelations.
  • Prove mastery of the relevant design methods of the Euro codes and apply them to both standard and non-standard situations, in structural and environmental civil engineering.
  • Ability to solve more complicate problems, not covered by the standard regulations and codes.
  • Approach other related areas of knowledge and recognize interconnections.
  • Apply a wide repertoire of concepts, computational techniques and engineering methodologies to approach complex full-scale problems and provide detailed and overarching solutions.
  • Cooperate effectively in a team and work independently.
  • Function professionally and give proof of open-mindedness, dynamism, competence, sense of responsibility, and willingness to take leadership if needed.
  • Manage risks appropriately and handle failure in a constructive manner.
  • Develop continuously personal and professional qualities, in particular via life-long and self-directed learning.
  • Ability to clearly, unambiguously, and exhaustively communicate engineering and technical solutions, design analysis, conclusions, and the rationale driving them to diverse audiences of the construction sector.
  • Culturally open and multilingual citizens able to work in consultancies and administrations as well as on construction sites in international team environments.
