Master's programme in Civil and Architectural Engineering

The programme starts with fundamental courses before moving into advanced-level courses that are often related to real-life projects and the use of state of the art tools for design and modelling. The Civil Engineering track is devoted to techniques for designing, constructing and maintaining roads and railway tracks, bridges and tunnels; the Architectural Engineering track is concerned with the engineering design and analysis of buildings with emphasis on system-level performance and in a life cycle perspective.
