  • Construction Management and Engineering

Apart from the courses that belong to the study lines, a number of elective courses can be chosen. At the third semester a 15 ECTS project course taken within a topic relating to the study line. Also, at the third semester, many students choose to study abroad at another university. The final semester is the master thesis semester, where you choose the topic. The master thesis work may be in cooperation with an external company.

The programme is taught by faculty members who are active researchers, so students benefit from a research-intensive environment and have the opportunity to work with researchers, as well as the chance to complete a project in collaboration with a private company.
