ER20SP Degree Programme in Construction Engineering
This curriculum is a translation of the curriculum of the Finnish degree program.
Curriculum responsibility: Harry Dunkel
Basis of Education
The degree program in Civil Engineering leads to a Bachelor's degree in engineering, the degree title being a Bachelor of Engineering. The scope of the studies is 240 credits and the duration is 4 years. The skills produced by the degree correspond to the level of higher education defined jointly in the European Union, which enables the movement of labor and experts.
The goal of the degree program in Civil Engineering is to train skilled engineers for the needs of the growing and developing construction industry. The construction industry offers a wide variety of opportunities and jobs for students as well as engineers working in the field. Jobs in the industry are varied and offer interesting challenges to their creators. An engineer graduating from the degree program in Civil Engineering can work in construction project planning, site management, and property management. The training prepares for the design, construction and maintenance of buildings, bridges, roads, streets, environmental and municipal structures.
New challenges include solutions related to renovation and environmental construction and safety. The civil engineer is responsible for ensuring that the result of the design and construction is a high-quality construction project that is completed on time, taking into account sustainable development and technical and economic aspects. The degree program in Civil Engineering can focus on three different orientation options: structural design, building construction production or infrastructure construction.
The studies in structural design provide the theoretical studies required for the qualification of a designer of concrete, wood and steel structures and building physics in a demanding class in accordance with the Land Use and Construction Act. The studies focus on the design of the structures of detached houses, industrial halls and apartment buildings.
By completing studies in building construction, you will be prepared to work as a responsible foreman in construction work in accordance with the Land Use and Construction Act. In addition, the theoretical studies required for the qualification of a structural designer in a conventional class in concrete, wood and steel structures and building physics may be included in the degree.
In infrastructure construction studies, the student acquires the skills to design, build and build infrastructure and environmental structures (bridges and traffic routes), water supply systems, and environmental and municipal engineering structures. The tasks relate to both new and renovation construction and maintenance. An infrastructure engineer can work in design offices as a designer, in production management, administration and marketing positions in construction companies, and as an expert in construction and building organizations.
