MSc Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is all around you. Roads, waterways, bridges and flood defenses are just a few everyday examples. Civil engineers have the knowledge to find sustainable solutions for actual problems such as climate change, sea-level rise, resource depletion, population growth and urbanisation, and ageing of infrastructure. TU Delft is a world leading university in Civil Engineering and executes ground breaking research into these challenges. Our research findings and innovations are fed into the educational programme so you are trained to think at a high academic level. This provides you with the necessary scientific and engineering skills to work in multidisciplinary teams of professionals that create responsible solutions to today’s engineering challenges.

Drop it! Kick-start for oysters at offshore wind farms

Splash…slowly a cube-shaped structure sinks to the bottom of the Delta flume at TU Delft’s Waterlab. A camera is recording every movement. Will it be a soft landing? And what will happen when the flume goes into stormy weather mode?

Building sand castles for your graduation

What Civil Engineering master’s student Jasper Scheijmans actually wanted was to graduate at a big dredging company but Covid-19 intervened. Jasper and his professors came up with a completely different idea. Why not carry out research into coastal dunes inside a container on the beach?
