Learning Outcomes

The Master of Science in Engineering has in-depth knowledge and understanding of  
1.    exact sciences with the specificity of their application to engineering  
2.    integrated structural design methods in the framework of a global design strategy  
3.    the advanced methods and theories to schematise and model complex problems or processes 
The Master of Science in Engineering can  
4.    reformulate complex engineering problems in order to solve them (simplifying assumptions, reducing complexity)  
5.    conceive, plan and execute a research project, based on an analysis of its objectives, existing knowledge and the relevant literature, with attention to innovation and valorisation in industry and society  
6.    correctly report on research or design results in the form of a technical report or in the form of a scientific paper 
7.    present and defend results in a scientifically sound way, using contemporary communication tools, for a national as well as for an international professional or lay audience  
8.    collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team  
9.    work in an industrial environment with attention to safety, quality assurance, communication and reporting  
10.    develop, plan, execute and manage engineering projects at the level of a starting professional 
11.    think critically about and evaluate projects, systems and processes, particularly when based on incomplete, contradictory and/or redundant information 
The Master of Science in Engineering has  
12.    a creative, problem-solving, result-driven and evidence-based attitude, aiming at innovation and applicability in industry and society 
13.    a critical attitude towards one’s own results and those of others 
14.    consciousness of the ethical, social, environmental and economic context of his/her work and strives for sustainable solutions to engineering problems including safety and quality assurance aspects  
15.    the flexibility and adaptability to work in an international and/or intercultural context  
16.    an attitude of life-long learning as needed for the future development of his/her career 

The Master of Science in Civil Engineering can 
17. design (conceptually and quantitatively), model, realize and manage concrete, steel and composite structures in the context of buildings and civil engineering infrastructures 
18. combine computational modelling methods, digital technologies and experimental techniques to monitor and design complex structures in civil engineering  
19. analyse geomaterials and design (conceptually and quantitatively) geotechnical structures  
20. show the interactions between structural solutions, structural and materials engineering and geotechnical engineering and achieve the transition from a conceptual solution to the detailed design of a civil engineering structure 
21. design civil engineering projects that contribute to the sustainability of the built environment
