There is a demand for graduate civil engineers with this technical background in construction from both the industry and public administration. Frequent contact with the industry will be central part of the programme.
The master’s programme in civil and constructional engineering provides a solid foundation for analysing issues and challenges in executing large projects in construction engineering. Essential topics in the programme are steel constructions, composite materials and UHPC, life-cycle assessment, fatigue, foundation engineering, the finite element method, risk management and quality management.
The Master’s degree in Civil and Constructional Engineering offered at University of Agder provides a foundation for carrying out life-cycle assessments so that you can evaluate the environmental and economic consequences of constructions meant to last for longer time periods.
A person with a degree in civil and constructional engineering will be greatly qualified for leading technical positions. The main employers are consulting engineering companies, civil engineering contractors, NODE companies and public sector organisations, such as municipalities and the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.
Completion of the supplementary programme awards the degree Master of Science in Civil Engineering.

We are not aware of any academic requirements for this programme.
The academic basis is a completed and passed three-year Bachelor’s programme in Engineering, based on the National Curriculum, within the fields of civil engineering and construction, mechanical engineering or marine construction. Furthermore, the following requirements, which partly go beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum, have to be met:
- At least 25 credits in relevant mathematics
- At least 5 credits in statistics
- At least 7,5 credits in physics
The requirement that there be a relevant basis in mathematics is satisfied through mathematics equivalent to obligatory mathematics and the elective course Mathematics 3 within UiA’s engineering programmes.
A weighted, average grade of C or better is required, see Regulations concerning admission to programmes and courses at the University of Agder, § 24. The grade requirement is calculated from all the grades included in the bachelor’s degree.
