Description

The MSc in Civil and Architectural Engineering provides you with a sound knowledge of building and construction and the opportunity to specialise in a related field.

In the first year, students learn about structural concepts, risk and reliability engineering, and participate in group projects that allow them to work independently and combine theory with practice. The second year involves a thesis, the topic of which is decided upon consultation with professors.

The programme is taught by faculty members who are active researchers, so students benefit from a research-intensive environment and have the opportunity to work with researchers as well as to complete a project in collaboration with a private company.

Student Life

The Department of Engineering has a number of social spaces for meeting other students outside class, and these are an excellent basis for social activities. There is an engineering club for staff and students through which students can network with like-minded people. As in all departments, there is a popular Friday bar, and the Tågekammeret association organises celebrations and social events for all science and technology students across departments.

Careers  

The varied forms of teaching, group collaboration and close scientific dialogue with researchers, as well as the department’s strong relationship with the industrial sector, give our graduates competencies that are in great demand on the global job market, including abstract, critical and independent thinking, analytical skills, and strategic planning. You can use these skills in many contexts – even in jobs you didn’t know you were qualified for.

Previous graduates of the MSc in Civil and Architectural Engineering have found jobs with consulting engineering firms, entrepreneurial firms, property companies, architecture firms, or in the building component industry. Graduates typically work in roles that involve developing and designing advanced building constructions, advanced energy technology solutions and industrialised building components – frequently in interdisciplinary collaboration with architects and designers.

Aarhus University School of Engineering

Description

The engineering discipline at Aarhus University is anchored in two organisational units: the Department of Engineering (ENG) and the Aarhus University School of Engineering (ASE).

The department was established in 2011 and is responsible for all research and development activities and talent development in the technical science field.
 
On 1 January 2012, the former Engineering College of Aarhus merged with Aarhus University and now brings together eight B.Eng programmes, three technical BSc programmes and eight MSc.Eng programmes. The programmes are practically oriented, and all three levels include collaboration with the industry. The interplay between the department and the school ensures that our engineering graduates are well equipped to transform scientific knowledge and engineering know-how into valuable solutions for society.  

Strong engineering framework
This organisation of the engineering discipline at Aarhus University forms a solid framework for operation and development of engineering education in accordance with market demand, for a unique model of cooperation with the industry and for a strongly expanding research environment. 
 
Department of Engineering and Aarhus University School of Engineering are united in a common goal of ensuring a clear correlation between societal investment in the engineering discipline and the contribution of the engineering discipline to a stronger Danish economy.
