If you need flexibility or live far from an educational institution, you can choose to enroll for the online Supply Engineering programme.
The study programme has exactly the same content and extent as the ordinary study programme in Supply Engineering.
The online study programme is a fulltime programme.
Distance learning and study days
The online Supply Engineering programme is organised as a combination of online distance learning and study days at the Campus in Horsens.
Here you will meet your fellow students and teachers approximately 3-6 days per month.
Group work can consist of both online and in-person collaboration. How the group work is organised depends on the group and on the assignments.
The student is responsible for paying any transport expenses incurred on the programme’s study days at Campus Horsens.
You will work both individually and in groups, and always in a project-oriented manner.
In each semester, you will work on a cross-disciplinary project that combines the different subjects taught during the semester in a final project.
You will notice your project work skills improving from one semester to the next.
Most projects will be carried out in co-operation with companies. VIA University College works closely with the utility sector, so you will be able to approach your project work from a practical angle.
During the seventh and last semester, more than half of the time has been set aside for your final Bachelor project on a topic of your choice.
1st semester – Soil and water
The overall theme for the first semester is "Soil and Water".
You learn to use the most common principles within landscape design, planning, and project descriptions. You will also learn to build and design underground installations for water, waster-water and district heating.
2nd semester – Climate and environment
The overall theme for the second semester is “Climate and Environment”. You will be assigned to evaluate the effects of climate and use collected data in a project context.
3rd. semester – Land development and construction
The overall theme for the third semester is "Land Development and Construction”. In this semester, you will plan and create a project for digging work in connection with utility lines and evaluate the financial costs. At the same time, you will calculate simple hydraulic conditions in the grid and design routes for the grid.
4th semester – Supply and distribution
The overall theme for the fourth semester is "Supply and Distribution”.
You will analyse data for a supply area, and make both professional and financial decisions about materials and products in the construction of utility lines.
5th semester – Internship
During the fifth semester, you will do a 20-week internship in a Danish or foreign company. You will get a chance to try out your theoretical knowledge in practice, and get a taste of the work you will carry out as a trained utility engineer.
Your internship will give you the experience and knowledge you can use in the remainder of your studies.
6th and 7th semester – Specialisation and bachelor project
The overall theme of the sixth and seventh semester is "Specialisation and Bachelor Project”. You can choose to do your specialisation within three areas: Water Supply, Wastewater or District Heating.
During the seventh semester more than half of your time will be set aside for your Bachelor Project, in which you will typically work together with a utility company or consulting engineer company.
There are new curricula on the way for the engineering programs at VIA with effect from August 2017.
