Civil Engineering

It is a civil engineer’s task to plan, design, implement and maintain these facilities. That must be done in such a way that the constructed facilities will satisfy the needs of traffic safely for an extended period.
In order to do so insight into the phenomenon traffic is essential. Traffic Engineering studies the origin, quantity and flow of traffic. Knowledge of how materials behave and construction methods to ensure that facilities can hold up to years of intensive use is required. The latter is the field of Road Engineering. This program includes a large component focusing on construction related subjects for the constructions necessary for roads like bridges, culverts, retaining walls etc.
The degree program includes waterworks as well, like sewer systems of facilities like harbors. Environmental aspects are part of the lectures and projects throughout the whole program.
