The programme covers 300 ECTS credits, equivalent to 5 years of full-time studies. The first three years of the programme are essentially at the basic level and are in Swedish. The last two years are at the advanced level and the programme coincides with an international master's programme, usually with English as the language of tuition.

During the first two years the courses are fundamental, compulsory courses in mathematics/naturalscience subjects and civil engineering and urban management technology. Prior to year 3 students are given the opportunity of specializing in a specific area that will prepare them for the choice of master’s programmes and courses at theadvancedlevel. The courses in year 3 are compulsory.

A number of courses on the programme contain practical and realistic elements such as exercises, seminars, laboratory work, field work, study visits and project assignments with a strong connection to common duties in the professional sphere. Engineering skills are thus trained in different ways. The professional profile of the programme is clear from the first term in the course Introduction to the Planning and Building Process.

Some courses and elements at advanced level in years 4 and 5 are preparatory for research.

The areas of specialization/in-depth work that students can choose prior to year 3 are:

  • Real estate economics and real estate law
  • Construction project management
  • Geographic IT
  • Civil and architectural engineering
  • Soil and water technology
  • Urban planning
  • Traffic engineering

During the last two years, subjects are read within the framework of one of the master’s programmes: Real estate and Construction Management,Civil and architectural engineering, Sustainable urban planning and design, Environmental engineering and sustainable infrastructure and Transport and geoinformation technology.
