Outflux from education

Graduates - general

At the faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences (CEG), students have, next to the two bachelor’s degree programmes Civil Engineering (CE) and Applied Earth Sciences (AES), a choice of four master’s programmes and there are a number of tracks within these programmes. The following table shows the total number of graduates from the bachelor’s and master’s programmes as provided by the faculty. 

The graduates of the track ‘Offshore Engineering’ are counted within the Faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials because this is the coordinating faculty; for that reason the table below shows zeros. The tracks Geoscience and Remote Sensing and Geo-Engineering are part of both master’s programmes Civil Engineering and Applied Earth Sciences. The master’s programme Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics (TIL) is organised together with the faculties of Technology, Policy and Management and Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. The master’s programme Construction Management and Engineering (CME) is organised together with the faculties of Architecture and the Built Environment and Technology, Policy and Management. The coordinating faculty of TIL and CME is CEG and thus the students are counted here.

There are two international programmes that are tracks of the Civil Engineering master’s programme: the double degree master Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management (HEWRM) (organised together with National University of Singapore) and the Erasmus Mundus program Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management (COMEM), which is hosted from Norway. In this programme the faculty CEG participates with four other universities.

From 2015-16 there is no influx of new students in the track HEWRM. HEWRM has become an exchange programme.

The master Applied Earth Science (AES) has two tracks: European Mining, Minerals and Environmental Programme (EMMEP) and the IDEA- League track Applied Geophysics (AGP) .

*One MSc student Civil Engineering had a different study programme in 2015-16.

The figure below displays the percentage of students that graduate from a certain track within the master Civil Engineering. The ”wet” tracks are still popular and the amount of graduates in Structural Engineering is also still high.

Proportion of women

Almost 28% of the graduates in 2015-16 are women. This is well above the average percentage (23%) of the past 10 years.
