Overview

The MSc programme in Civil and Architectural Engineering from Aarhus University is taught by faculty members who are active researchers, so students benefit from a research-intensive environment. You will have the chance to work with researchers and complete a project in collaboration with a private company.

Specialize as you choose

Year one of the MSc consists of one compulsory study package and two specialised study packages. All students take the compulsory study package, but you can choose your own two specialised study packages from the options listed on the next page. Year two consists of an elective programme and a Master’s thesis, the topic of which is decided upon consultation with professors.

Your elective programme is chosen by you. You may choose from a number of specialised courses within civil and architectural engineering, including advanced finite element analysis of structures, bridge design, structural mechanics of wind turbines, or pre-stressed concrete structures. As part of the elective programme, you may also choose to do a research project or study abroad for a semester.

The MSc programme offers specialised study packages in the following fields: structural analysis and concrete structures, structural dynamics and monitoring, geotechnical engineering, construction management, tectonic design, indoor climate and energy, (day)lighting design, fluid dynamics, and building ventilation.

Student life

At Aarhus University you will be part of an extensive engineering environment with more than 3,000 engineering students. So you will have ample opportunity to get involved in both academic and social student associations with your fellow students.

Careers

The varied forms of teaching, group collaboration, and close scientific dialogue with researchers, as well as the department’s strong relationship with the industrial sector, give our graduates competencies that are in great demand on the global job market, including abstract, critical and independent thinking, analytical skills, and strategic planning. You can use these skills in many contexts – even in jobs you didn’t know you were qualified for.

Previous graduates of the MSc in Civil and Architectural Engineering have found jobs with consulting engineering firms, contractors, property developers, architecture firms, or in the building component industry. Graduates typically work in roles that involve developing and designing advanced building constructions, advanced energy technology solutions and industrialised building components – frequently in interdisciplinary collaboration with architects and designers.
