The Master of Science in Civil Engineering - Megastructure Engineering with Sustainable Resources from the University of Luxembourg educates, not only the general Civil Engineer, but also has a focus on planning and construction of megastructures with the sustainable use of resources.

About

The theme "sustainability" is increasingly important and the well-trained modern civil engineer must be able to judge and optimise civil structures and buildings in the context of the growing shortness of construction materials and energy resources. It is this focus on both themes, megastructures and sustainability, which sets us apart from other masters of civil engineering.

Learning outcomes

By studying this programme, the student becomes a Master of Science in Civil Engineering who can:

  • Analyse civil problems and put them in a broader context regarding non-technical aspects, such as project management and managerial accounting.
  • Operate in an international environment and in interdisciplinary teams.
  • Plan and design structures, systems, components and processes to meet desired needs in civil engineering.
  • Oversee the consequences of his/her actions regarding time and transport planning, energy consumption, environmental health and use of resources.
  • Optimise the design by a sustainable use of resources.
  • Apply this all at the most complex design of civil megastructures.

Career opportunities

This Master of Science in Civil Engineering - Megastructure Engineering with Sustainable Resources from the University of Luxembourg forms part of the Bologna process. As such, graduates can work world-wide as a civil engineer for:

  • engineering consultancies,
  • contractors,
  • dredgers,
  • governmental and railway organisations.

The student can also continue his/ her career with a PhD-research at a university.
