The Civil Engineering programme of University of Liège allows a specialization oriented towards the design, advanced calculation, execution and management of structures subjected to exceptional loads (fire, earthquake, floods,...).
The first specificity of the programme is that the courses are organised according to an analysis at different scales: from materials to structures, mechanical, physical and chemical behaviours are evaluated in order that the civil engineer may be capable, in due course, of designing any type of structure. A second major advantage has to do with the use of structures themselves: why and for whom? For how long? In what environment? This complementary approach will enable you to reflect on the different stages of the realisation of an individual object: conception, dimensioning, implementation, management or repair.
The structures under consideration include all major types of civil engineer project (tunnels, bridges, dams, roads, etc.) and building (skyscrapers, etc.). The programme has been accredited by the French Engineering Accreditation Council (Commission des titres d'ingénieur - CTI) and has been awarded the EUR-ACE label, which certifies the highest quality in engineering education in Europe.
Graduates of the advanced stream are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to join a research and development unit or to go on to do doctoral studies. At the end of the Master's Programme, Construction Engineers with a degree from the University of Liège are able to apply their foundational knowledge and understanding of the mechanics of materials, structures and fluids, in materials science, in geology and geotechnology, to design, dimension, implement, maintain, repair or adapt civil engineering works, buildings or transport infrastructures, taking account of the natural, human and built environments while also taking economic constraints into consideration. They are able to evaluate the limits of a theory, estimates or working hypotheses. They know how to conduct experiments and interpret the results in a critical manner. They are able to handle unfamiliar or unusual problems or issues in new or emerging domains, show creativity and adopt an innovative approach.
