Engineering (civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, architectural, building, etc.) is at the core of a successful economy and the infrastructure it develops directly affects the well-being of its citizens and the environment. Read more
Engineering (civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, architectural, building, etc.) is at the core of a successful economy and the infrastructure it develops directly affects the well-being of its citizens and the environment. There are, however, two main challenges that the engineering and construction industry currently face. First, modern engineering project clients are increasingly requiring contractors to deliver projects using limited resources, at low cost, in short duration and to a high level of quality and safety.

Second, much existing infrastructure is under severe strain due to a legacy of inadequate maintenance and rapid population growth. These difficulties cause premature deterioration of existing infrastructure, thereby reducing their intended economic yield. The demand for infrastructure provision and maintenance has thus become more acute and a recognised issue worldwide than ever. Thus, the efficient delivery of infrastructure projects is not the only standard clients desperately expect from contractors, but their sustained improvement throughout the useful life of the infrastructure is also a key requirement. As a result, there will be a continued and growing demand for highly motivated graduates aware of project infrastructure planning, construction, and their subsequent management/maintenance for addressing such challenges.

Civil engineers play a major role in developing infrastructures and supporting human development, while contributing to the sustainable development of society. Contamination of soil and water, lack of access to drinking water, and unsustainable use of land and water resources remain major obstacles to global sustainability, while new challenges include threats from climate change and rapid urbanisation.

Programme description

Infrastructure and environmental engineering is an interdisciplinary field that includes; traffic and road engineering, urban metabolism, water system engineering, engineering geology, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering and sustainability.

Investments in infrastructure also form a considerable part of the global economy. Hence safe, economic and sustainable development requires continued progress in civil engineering with a specialisation towards infrastructure and environment.

To meet this societal need for qualified competence in planning, design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure systems in soil and water, this programme promotes the personal development of knowledge, skills and attitudes that are needed to start working as a professional engineer in the field of infrastructure and environmental engineering. An important task is to be knowledgeable and responsible for the interface between urban development and the environment.

Sweden is surrounded by one of the planet’s most sensitive ocean environments and a landmass consisting mainly of fractured rock and complex glacial sediments, including soft clays. This has given us some of the strictest environmental and building regulations in the world. This gives Sweden a very good reputation within the field and the programme a nationally and internationally unique profile. We are closely linked to several research projects and the majority of our faculty conduct research.

Educational methods

To prepare students for a long lasting professional career, the programme promotes personal development in comprehensive view of planning, construction and operation process; ability to work methodically and by means of modern engineering tools; ability to work in project teams, lead project work and present results; and the ability to critically review and develop technical solutions. To do so you or the group you work with will be given open problems, often real-case scenarios provided by industry and society.

Integration of professional experience in education is an important part of the programme and you will become well prepared for entering the market in a professional role.
