Structural design and structural innovation are the cornerstones of this programme. Civil engineering structures are designed with a specific purpose, in compliance with environmental, legal and structural rules. Through the choice of materials, numerical simulation and construction methods, the conceptual structural design is translated into structural shapes and dimensions. The engineering challenge is to arrive at an optimal structural design that meets the relevant criteria of structural strength, serviceability, energy efficiency, durability, etc. This process is driven by technological innovations: new materials, building information modelling (BIM), heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technologies (HVAC), etc.
Almost 30% of this programme (18ECTS) is composed of elective courses, allowing you to focus on the technological innovations of your choice: Dredging, BIM, Acoustics, Coastal and River Engineering, Sustainable Materials Engineering, Precast Concrete and Dynamics of Structures.
