Design of constructions and mechanical systems
The focal point during the programme concerns the construction of large structures - for instance a tall building, a pier or a drilling rig. You learn about design and analysis of marine and offshore constructions, and you get to work with analysis of bearing structures.
The semester projects are an excellent opportunity for you to immerse in a specific subject of your interest, often in close collaboration with an industrial partner. Projects allow you to apply complex theories to real life problems - which could for instance concern the construction of foundations for offshore wind turbines or calculation of the effect of wind on tall chimneys.
