The built environment is fundamental for everyday life and comfort, and is essential for the global economy. This programme addresses issues related to structures and buildings and comprises development and operation of structures, structural systems and complex buildings for a modern, sustainable and resource efficient society.
The aim of the programme is to provide knowledge and skills for a professional career within the fields of structural engineering and building technology. All phases of the engineering process related to planning, design, construction, operation, assessment and rehabilitation are covered, and different engineering roles relevant for the field is demonstrated.
The Structural Engineering and Building Technology programme at the Chalmers University of Technology.should fulfil the market's need for qualified competence: technical specialists and system generalists as well as researchers and academic teachers.
The programme prepares students for a long professional career. It promotes personal development and the engineering skills needed to model, analyse and design structural systems and complex buildings, based on a deep and intuitive understanding of physical and mechanical behaviour. It provides the ability to critically review and develop technical solutions.
Furthermore, the programme offers a good overview of the field and promotes the ability to co-operate on teams, to communicate in an international environment and to lead project work.
The programme is designed to provide students with a good and stable basis for a professional career. Integration of professional experience in education is an important part of the programme, and the student will be well prepared to enter the market in a professional role.
There is an obvious need for technical specialists and engineers with a high level of general knowledge in the programmes's field. Chalmers graduates from this field of study the past few years have received relevant and qualified tasks at their first jobs.
