The programme in Civil Engineering covers the development, planning, design and construction of cities, buildings, facilities and services.You will learn how to use advanced mathematical models and computer simulations in the design process. You will also gain knowledge of physical principles, construction materials, structural behaviour and the planning and design of buildings and cities.

Civil engineers are responsible for planning, designing, constructing and maintaining most of our environment. It takes profound knowledge and a versatile mind to master the disciplines involved—including mechanics, material science, energy technology, heat and mass transfer, hydraulics, acoustics, risk assessment, computer modelling and simulation, 3D visualization, communication and management.

The MSc programme in Civil Engineering is divided into four specializations:
  • Building Structures
  • Building Services
  • Civil Works and Marine Structures
  • Urban and Construction Management

Depending on your specialisation, you will study disciplines such as:
  • Mechanics
  • Material Science
  • Energy Technology

  • Hydraulics
  • Acoustics
  • Computer Modelling and Simulation
  • Communication
  • Management

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
