Short description of the study programme

The Faculty offers an MSc programme in Structural Engineering with a duration of 1.5 years. The MSc programme has three specializations: Specialization in Numerical Modelling, Specialization in Structures, and Specialization in Geotechnics and Geology. Specialization in Numerical Modelling provides advanced knowledge of structural analysis using contemporary computer
techniques, including the theoretical background of the methods. Specialization in Structures provides thorough knowledge in structural design, skills enabling to carry out independent project coordination and to execute special design, construction and development procedures.

The main goal of the Specialization in Geotechnics and Geology is to provide enhanced knowledge and skills in the field of engineering geology, geotechnics modelling, underground structures and foundations. These specializations are useful for research oriented students pursuing a doctoral degree in a PhD programme, as well as for the next generation of practicing leading engineers, who will solve special structural problems and innovate the construction procedures.
