WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Construction Engineering degree programme students focus on structural engineering, especially on steel construction. Steel Constructions studies include lots of mechanics, mathematics, technical drawings and CAD. Understanding of the structures, and 3-D visualization skills will develop during the studies.
A degree completed in English provides construction engineers with good language skills and international know-how, making it possible to work anywhere in the world.
Structural Engineering Degree Content
At HAMK, structural engineering focuses on steel construction. Steel Constructions studies include lots of mechanics, mathematics, technical drawings and CAD. Understanding of the structures, and 3-D visualization skills will develop during the studies.
During the studies (Steel Constructions) it is possible to achieve credits required by A-class structural engineer qualifications:
- Structural mechanics – 16 credits
- Concrete construction and technology – 8 credits
- Concrete structure engineering – 8 credits
- Steel structure engineering – 8 credits
- Timber structure engineering – 12 credits
- Construction physics – 5 credits
There are additional possibilities to study abroad by completing a Double Degree, partly at HAMK and partly at Danish VIA University College. Students can also choose to study a part of their degree in Finnish in HAMK’s Finnish- language construction engineering programme.
The tasks of engineering graduates may be related to the construction of new premises and to the repair of existing structures in engineering or project management in Finland and abroad. Daily tasks may involve design, product development, supervision in an official capacity, or trading. Construction professionals constantly monitor developments in the sector, they are familiar with the latest design and production techniques and can manage modern management techniques, and they are capable of applying them to practical situations at work.
