Designing, calculating, building as well as repairing or rebuilding civil engineering works (bridges, tunnels) and buildings: planning, modernising and maintaining communication infrastructures (roads, railways, waterways, etc.); surmounting obstacles, etc. These are among the many areas in which Construction Engineers can practice their art.
The main objective of the Civil Engineering programme offered at University of Liège is to equip you with the necessary tools to acquire an excellent understanding of the behaviour of structures, a sound knowledge of soils and foundations and an in-depth mastery of the behaviour of materials. These tools will help you observe, understand and master the entire range of civil engineering techniques and to see how they integrate with the natural and human environments.
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.).
A generalist in construction and a specialist in the art of building, the civil engineer in construction fulfils a wide range of different functions. They involve important sectors of economic activity, notably including buildings, civil engineering and transport infrastructures, etc.
Civil engineers in construction may work in companies or research centres of all sizes. Their training can lead to a career:
They may also choose to start their own businesses.
The versatility of the programme allows Construction Engineers with a degree from ULiège to pursue careers in disciplines far removed from their specialism, such as manufacturing industries, business management or IT.
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.
