A construction engineer's task is to plan, design, build and manage buildings so that they satisfy the requirements of the authorities and the users. In this context “buildings” includes actual buildings as well as roads, bridges, and drainage. Engineers solve problems in many different roles, such as planners, consultants, contractors, as well as for the authorities.
This bachelor study is primarily aimed towards the part of the business sector that comprises erection of constructions. Ability to exercise management combined with technological knowledge are crucial. The programme combines traditional learning with "learning on site". This means that students will be out on the construction site for a several periods of time.
The following topics will be treated especially:
- Project development (management, directing, functionality, budgeting, construction specifications)
- Contract law (private-law, public law, juridical standards, implementation models)
- Tenders and contracts
- Plan of progress (economical rapports, notifying, deviation, takeovers)
- EHS – environment, health and safety – (legal obligations and routines)
- Environmental considerations (basic environmental challenges, environmental state)
Language: The lectures are mainly held in Norwegian.
- Ordinary 3 years study
- 180 credtits
- Bachelor degree, Bachelor Building Constructions, Project Management
National rammeplan for ingeniørutdanning.
Expected learning outcomes
At end of study, the students will be able to:
- Apply knowledge in mathematics, science and technology
- Identify, formulate, plan, and solve technical problems in a systematic way within their specialised field
- Specify demands for solutions in a systematic manner
- Plan and see through experiments, as well as analyse, interpret, and use new facts
- Construct a component, a system, or a process to achieve specified results
- Utilize modern tools, techniques, and acquire skills in their daily work
- Cooperate interdisciplinary to solve complicated tasks
- Communicate efficiently with other disciplines
- Understand and practices professional and ethical responsibility
- Take care of the concept of quality in all contexts
- Participate in innovation processes
- See technological solutions in an economical, organisational and environmental context
Graduates will be able to work in the construction industry, either as a construction manager/assistant, as a project developer, or in roles such as the contractor manager on site. Many other opportunities will also be found within both public and private sectors.
