The M.Eng. in Engineering (Building Engineering)  degree from the University of Malta  explores the role of management, the environment as arbiter in key building decisions, structure, and construction. 

You will look at shear walls and deep beams, and study the importance of acoustics in various kinds of buildings, whatever the context and role of the design. The programme trains you to understand that the intended services of a building are an integral part of the structure and not an afterthought. You will be tasked with writing a long dissertation on a topic of your choosing in the field.

Career opportunites and access to further studies

As a graduate of the M. Eng. Building Engineering you will be employable in construction, property and surveying practice industries. Careers among these, both locally and internationally, include professions such as a perit, product engineer, design engineer, structural engineer, and construction project manager. If you would like to further your studies or are interested in pursuing an academic profession, then you are encouraged to enrol into a doctorate programme.
