The Sustainable Structural Engineering master offered at Linnaeus University is a program for you who want to shape and construct the buildings of the future. Today, numerous challenging and exciting buildings are being designed and constructed in our society.

Examples of such are tall and slender buildings or structures with long spans. Most likely this trend will further develop, and in parallel, new and increasing demands regarding long term sustainability will be put on the built environment. 

To be professionally successful in the future, structural engineers need to develop thorough understanding of the possibilities and limitations of different materials and also possess knowledge with respect to building elements and structural load bearing systems. 

Within the framework of the Sustainable Structural Engineering master offered at Linnaeus University you are intellectually challenged by advanced theories of analysis, but also by more practical applications. You will be one of those who will be able to develop future principles for sustainable structural engineering.


Engineers with a deep understanding of computational mechanics have good opportunities to obtain qualified and challenging assignments within a broad variety of companies. Examples of such are various consultants and producing and developing companies that want to further develop their products. A degree from the program also provides a solid foundation for PhD studies.
