Master of Science in Civil Engineering and Urban Management Engineering aims to give students opportunities and abilities to participate in and lead work on how buildings, infrastructure and cities should be designed and built. It includes the institutional and regulatory framework that should be developed to provide a good habitat and good development environment for business.
The programme provides a broad knowledge in mathematics, science, Civil Engineering and Urban Management engineering, economics and law in the early years and thereafter a depth in a specific area of the Built Environment, for example, construction and real estate, house construction, soil and water engineering, urban and traffic planning.
In addition to the objectives specified in the Higher Education Ordinance, an engineer who graduates from KTH has also achieved goals listed below.
