The Programme covers 300 credits, which corresponds to 5 years of full-time studies.  The first three years of the Programme are primarily at first cycle and in Swedish.  The two last years are at second cycle and the studies correspond to a Master's programme, as a rule with English as the language of instruction.

During the first two years the courses are compulsory and conditionally elective courses in mathematics-natural science subjects and civil engineering and urban management.  Prior to year 3, students are given the opportunity to create a distinct profile towards a specific specialism which prepares for electives for Master's programmes and courses at second cycle. The courses in year 3 are compulsory and conditionally elective courses.

A number of courses in the Programme contain practical and realistic stages such as exercises, seminars, laboratory work, field exercises, study visits and project assignments with a strong connection to tasks which are a part of working life. Engineering skills are accordingly practised in different ways.  The professional profile of the Programme is already highlighted during the first term through the course Planning and Building Process.

Studies in years 3, 4 and 5 is done for a specific urban management such as civil and architectural engineering, construction project management, ground and water engineering, town and traffic planning, geographical IT and real estate economics and real estate law.

The last two years of the Programme are studied 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 as well as Transport and Geoinformation Technology.

Certain courses and subjects at second cycle in years 4 and 5 are research preparation.
