Steel Engineer MSEng

This course is all about independently designing and calculating.

« terug naar Staalconstructeur MSEng Meld je aan voor deze opleiding

The student is trained to independently design and calculate structures. A lot of attention is paid to the development of constructive insight throughout the course.

The program comprises two equivalent courses: Steel Engineer MSEng and Concrete Engineer MSEng. In terms of course design and curriculum, the courses are structured the same way. This offers the important advantage that the supportive subjects (applied mechanics, dynamics, mathematics, foundation engineering) are the same for both courses. Students who, after completion of one course, wish to take the other as well, can save nearly an entire year.

An important aspect of the course is the graduation project, for which students must design, calculate, and detail a structure. The graduation project must be defended before the Examination Board. After passing the exams, graduates will hold the title Master of Structural Engineering (MSEng). 

Level
Technical University

Completion of the course provides 160 Knowledge Units for the Engineers’ Register.

Duration
3 years.

Classes take place weekly on Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.
2 years for students with a completed HTI (Higher Technical Institute) education.

Exams
After passing the exams, the student will receive the Steel Engineer MSEng degree.
The graduation project consists of designing, calculating, and detailing a steel structure, and defending it before the Examination Board.

For whom?
The course is open for structural engineers with a higher vocational education degree in structural, civil, or mechanical engineering with a constructive graduation project, and for graduates from the Steel Engineer BSEng course. Furthermore, a number of years of relevant work experience is recommended. Students with a completed HTI education can start in the second year. Students must be currently active in the profession. Please submit a copy of the relevant certifications when signing up.
