Overview

The Engineering in Computing in Construction program explores how data is used in the construction industry. It looks at the different types of data generated and used throughout the construction process, including building models, city layouts, and detailed measurements.

The program focuses on two main themes:

  1. How different types of data work together across models and datasets; and 
  2. Interoperability of systems or examining how different computer systems can operate together smoothly. This includes figuring out how the shared data from various programs could automate the workflow.

It’s important to note that this program doesn’t teach you how to use specific tools for building models or BIM-based design. Instead, it focuses on the bigger picture of how data shapes the construction industry and how computers can help make things run more efficiently.

Edunation application period

Rolling Admission
• 08.02.2024 – 25.04.2024

After completing the program, students will learn about the different types of models and data used in the real-estate and construction sectors. They will also gain experience and capabilities to apply, develop, and implement modern computational methods and tools to do the process.

This program will also help improve the quality, sustainability, productivity, and safety of future construction projects.

Students will become familiar with:

  • Various types of models used in construction, such as building information models, city models, product data, etc.
  • Secure and organized data management practices and sharing technologies; and
  • Information collected during construction, such as point clouds and sensor data and event data.

Students will also acquire skills such as:

  • Use computer tools to search, work with, connect, improve and handle data; and
  • Create and improve models and systems to meet the demands of the construction industry.

The program covers 60 ECTS in total and will take 1.5 years to complete.

The program consists of:

  • Common Studies 20 ECTS
  • Elective Studies 10 ECTS
  • Master’s Thesis 30 ECTS</li>

Moreover, the program uses English in communication and done during daytime, from Monday to Friday.

It is highly recommended for students to have their own laptop with administrative rights for them to be able to complete exercises, assignments, and projects.

During the class, students will do software work on the above-mentioned topics using specific programming languages. Therefore, students need to be prepared to install, manage, and use these programs.

Upon graduation, a multitude of career paths await. Since you can gain experience and capabilities to apply, develop, and implement modern computational methods and tools to do the process, you will have a lot of career opportunities, opening doors to diverse career paths in the construction industry.
