Sustainable Structural Engineering, Master Programme

120 credits

Sustainable Structural Engineering is a master's program for you who want to shape and construct the buildings of the future.

Today, numerous challenging and exciting buildings are being designed and constructed in our society. Examples of such are tall and slender buildings or structures with long spans. Most likely this trend will further develop, and in parallel, new and increasing demands regarding long term sustainability will be put on the built environment. To be professionally successful in the future, structural engineers need to develop thorough understanding of the possibilities and limitations of different materials and also possess knowledge with respect to building elements and structural load bearing systems. Within the framework of the program you are intellectually challenged by advanced theories of analysis, but also by more practical applications. You will be one of those who will be able to develop future principles for sustainable structural engineering.


Engineers with a deep understanding of computational mechanics have good opportunities to obtain qualified and challenging assignments within a broad variety of companies. Examples of such are various consultants and producing and developing companies that want to further develop their products. A degree from the program also provides a solid foundation for PhD studies.


Master of Science (120 credits) with specialisation in sustainable structural engineering

Main field of study: Civil Engineering


Linnaeus University’s campus is located roughly 15 minutes with bicycle from the city centre. Campus is like a small society in its own right, with the university, student accommodation and student life all in one place. Everything happens on campus – here you become part of a creative knowledge environment and an eventful student life.

What will you find when exploring Växjö? There is a great selection of restaurants and cosy cafés. There is a large lake in the city centre, beautiful nature is always nearby. Many students enjoy the combination of the city centre in Växjö and life on campus. This is where your dream of the future begins!
