Civil engineers play a crucial role in developing infrastructure and supporting human development in a sustainable manner. Issues such as soil and water contamination, lack of access to safe drinking water, and unsustainable use of resources remain major obstacles to global sustainability, while the growing threat of climate change and problems arising from rapid urbanisation pose new challenges.
Infrastructure and environmental engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field that includes everything from traffic and road engineering, urban metabolism and water system engineering, to geotechnical and environmental engineering. Infrastructure investment also constitutes a considerable part of the global economy. Safe, economical, and sustainable development is therefore heavily reliant on the continued progress of civil engineering technologies.
The programme is a response to this enormous societal need for qualified competence in planning, design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure systems. It promotes the personal development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to start working as a professional engineer in the field.
This programme will prepare you for a long-lasting professional career in the field, with a comprehensive focus on skills including planning, construction and operation processes, the ability to work methodically and in teams, lead project work and present results, to critically review and develop technical solutions, and to use modern engineering tools. You will be make use of real-case scenarios provided by industry and society, benefiting from excellent links to national and international industrial partners.
Core subjects covered in the programme include sustainable environment and water system engineering , as well as courses on topics such as wastewater, traffic and road engineering, urban metabolism, geotechnics, and more.
Sweden is surrounded by one of the planet’s most sensitive ocean environments, with a fragile and complex landmass, resulting in some of the strictest environmental and building regulations in the world. Consequently, Sweden enjoys an excellent reputation within the field of infrastructure and environmental engineering, and this programme offers an internationally unique profile. We are closely linked to several large, active research projects and the majority of our faculty are highly involved in research as well.
The integration of professional experience into the education is an important part of the programme and after graduation you will be very well-prepared to enter the market in a professional role.
