About

Contamination of soil and water, lack of access to drinking water, and unsustainable use of land and water resources remain major obstacles to global sustainability, while new challenges include threats from climate change and rapid urbanisation. The Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering programme is delivered by Chalmers University of Technology.

Overview

Infrastructure and environmental engineering is an interdisciplinary field that includes; traffic and road engineering, urban metabolism, water system engineering, engineering geology, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering and sustainability.

Investments in infrastructure also form a considerable part of the global economy. Hence safe, economic and sustainable development requires continued progress in civil engineering with a specialisation towards infrastructure and environment.​

To meet this societal need for qualified competence in planning, design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure systems in soil and water, the Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering programme of Chalmers University of Technology. promotes the personal development of knowledge, skills and attitudes that are needed to start working as a professional engineer in the field of infrastructure and environmental engineering. An important task is to be knowledgeable and responsible for the interface between urban development and the environment.

Career 

Civil and environmental engineers with a strong background in both infrastructure and environmental engineering are sought after and will be so also in the future, both nationally and internationally. Our previous student have had a high level of employability within companies like; Sweco, Skanska, NCC, Veolia, Göteborg kretslopp och vatten, and Trafikverket, to name a few.

In Sweden many large infrastructure projects are planned, including roads and railways construction, traffic planning, upgrading of drinking water and wastewater plants, remediation of contaminated sites. Other fields of work are; protection of soil and water resources, foundation of structures and buildings, tunnels, the design of drinking water and wastewater treatment plants and distribution systems. 

Adaptation to climate change and urbanisation will increase the need even further. Internationally there is immense continued need for competent engineers in this sector, both within but perhaps even more outside Europe. With a Master’s degree from Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering, you will usually work with design, maintenance, construction and research in the field of civil and environmental engineering. Others may attain supervisory or administrative positions, especially on an international level.
