Retour en début de pageStudy objectives

The Master’s degree in civil engineering aims to train engineers who will be able to meet future technological  challenges in the scientific and technical fields relating to civil and environmental engineering, within an ever-changing European and global context.
Upon graduating, students will be familiar with the mathematical and physical methods relating to the five basic fields of civil and environmental engineering (building ; hydraulics ; geotechnics ; structures and materials ; environment) and will have acquired advanced training in some of these disciplines via project work and elective courses.
Every year, a cutting-edge project will be proposed in one of the following : hydraulics, geotechnics and structures. Concurrently, a project integrating the other two disciplines will ensure interdisciplinarity.
Students have a choice between seven options.
The first five offer a choice of courses in each of the five abovementioned fields, viz.  Construction and Architecture, Hydraulics, la Geotechnics, Structures and Environment, so that students can target their training.
A sixth option is made up of a series of courses emphasizing Advanced topics in civil engineering.
The objective of the seventh option in Management is to familiarize the engineering student  with the basics of company management.

Retour en début de pageGeneral presentation of the programme

The Master’s curriculum in civil engineering will consist of at least 120 credits covering two years, with a minimum of 60 credits per year, and comprising :
- a core curriculum (64 credits)
- a specialization curriculum (30 credits)
- one option (at least 15 credits) from amongst the seven proposed options (Advanced topics in civil engineering, Hydraulics, Geotechnics, Structures, Environment, Building and architecture, Management).
- elective courses if necessary.
The final thesis is generally written during the last year. However, depending on their specific training objectives, students may choose to take any given course in the first or second year, subject to possible prerequisites. This will be the case in particular for students pursuing part of their education abroad.
If, in the course of his (her) former curriculum, a student has already been credited with a subject included in the compulsory core curriculum, or any training deemed equivalent, this subject will be replaced by elective courses, while conforming to imposed constraints. The student is responsible for checking whether the minimum total number of credits has been reached, as well as those of the specialized field, which will appear on the final diploma.
The student’s curriculum will be submitted for acceptance by the relevant diploma committee.

Wathever the focus or the options chosen, the programme of this master shall totalise 120 credits, spread over two years of studies each of 60 credits
