MSc in Structural Engineering

If you are happy to work with structures and if you love working in different materials, so you can probably find a great interest in becoming a civil engineer in construction engineering.

As Master of Science in Structural Engineering you can use your theoretical knowledge to take responsibility for the behavior and the construction of various buildings. Especially the construction industry demand for civil engineers with specialized knowledge in engineering for materials such as concrete, steel, stone and the like.

You will be familiar with how to build the best possible with certain materials and how various materials interact with each other. Engineering techniques can be used in any context where it should be built. It can be anything from a bridge, a warehouse, a machine or a robot.

You also learn how to earthquakes ensures a building or designing it so that it minimize the impact of wind. However, it is not so relevant in Denmark with seismic protection, so there is also international opportunities in education.

You get the opportunity to become project manager on major projects at engineering firms and contractors.

It is both project work and team teaching you receive in the program. Some of the subjects you'll come in on vibration analysis, continuum, stability and material technology.

Teaching is a mixture of normal teaching and part project that focuses on the individual student learns to work with others, for example. a team.

Once you have written your thesis and finish your studies, your title Cand. Eng.

Job Opportunities

As Engineer, you have great potential to work in the profession You qualified in. Civil Engineers often come to work with design / development of new innovative products with the latest technology. Some Civil Engineers quickly gain a leadership position in private businesses and experiencing a larger responsibility. The pay is advantageous for most Civil Engineers. Some Civil Engineers choose to start their own businesses and large Danish companies like Oticon was founded by Civil Engineers.
