Overview

The course is given in cooperation with: Université Libre de Bruxelles: Brussels Faculty of Engineering (in short Bruface)

This Master offers

* An in-depth understanding of the main aspects of analysis and design of all kinds of advanced load-bearing constructions, as well as of material technology. * Strong links with a wide range of industrial organisations in all branches of engineering, including civil engineering consultants, contractors, public service organisations and materials suppliers.

These help to provide an exciting and industrially relevant environment for study and project work throughout the degree courses.

The main objectives of this master programme are to develop an in-depth understanding of the main aspects of analysis and design of all kinds of advanced load-bearing constructions, as well as of material technology. Important issues are the optimization of the form of the structure, the selection of the materials and the construction method in terms of mechanical properties, environmental impact, life cycle cost and sustainability. Both conventional reinforced and pre-stressed concrete or steel structures and systems in novel materials (fibre reinforced, cellular, hybrids…) are considered.

In addition, the objective is to provide civil engineers within a broad range of technical skills which will enable them to take a professional approach to civil engineering problems, to gather and assimilate the required information in an efficient manner, to formulate and implement a solution method and to execute and administer the projects they are involved in.

This balanced training is closely linked to scientific research in related fields. This will serve as a basis for ‘lifelong learning’. In particular, the education shall provide the necessary knowledge and competences to conduct scientific research in a critical and self-reliant manner or as a member of a team. This Master provides a profound scientific background to the design and construction of all kinds of advanced load-bearing systems, as well as the required competences and attitudes to become a responsible staff member.

Practicing the profession of Civil Engineer involves a number of generic skills, including:

* reasoning skills: logical thinking and spatial vision * communication skills: the ability to compile reports and hold presentations * managerial skills: planning, organizing and leading activities, efficient time management * interpersonal and social skills: a sense of responsibility and teamwork * creativity and entrepreneurial spirit * awareness of the necessity of ongoing training in recent technological, industrial and scientific developments
