You have the feet on the ground, and want to understand and master in a sustainable way the natural and built environment?

You dream of designing and constructing key infrastructures of our daily lives?

You are a practical person, with the willingness to put your energy and skills at the service of the society, to act in a concrete way for a better world?

We offer you a course programme that will prepare you to respond to the evolving technical challenges of civil engineering in our changing world:

  • What type of civil engineering structures will provide adequate responses to the new challenges of mobility, changing environment, new ways of life, in a context of limited resources?
  • How to build better, with fewer resources? What is the life cycle of existing and future infrastructures?
  • How to face the consequences of global climate change? What will be the impact on the design and construction of civil engineering structures?
  • How to reduce the risks related to man-induced or natural hazards?

Thanks to a strong programme in the fields of structural, geotechnical and hydraulic engineering, you will learn to master the physical principles underlying all these technical challenges. Through an immersion in research labs and numerous practical works, you will progressively discover the project approach and be challenged, with your group, to propose appropriate technical responses.

The master in Civil Engineering also includes a two-month mandatory internship in a company, in Belgium or abroad, to allow you to practice all the acquired knowledges and competences while discovering the daily reality of your future profession.

Finally, numerous opportunities also exist to follow a part of your cursus abroad, in Europe or worldwide through the existing exchange programmes.
