Bachelor Project (CE-)





Offered by

Civil Engineering




Completion of the mandatory and elective courses in Civil Engineering.

Main purpose

The purpose is to document the student’s ability to identify civil engineering problems and to apply engineering theories and methods to a given project within the specialization.


After the completion of the project work, the student must be able to:
- Describe a given (chosen) engineering problem, list relevant tools (formulas, methods, software, etc.) to clarify the problem, apply the tools, reflect and conclude.
- Understand how the conclusion/solution to the given problem influences connected areas theoretically and/or technically.


After the completion of the project work, the student must be able to:
- Apply engineering theories and methods within chosen subjects and independently be able to plan and carry out experiments or practical measurements as appropriate.
- Acquire new knowledge critically within relevant engineering fields.
- Apply quality assurance/critically review data and results.
- If relevant, make financial estimates for the project/solution.
- Present all relevant information in report and appendix, using references and sources of information correctly.
- Extract the essence of the project and communicate this clearly orally and in writing.


After the completion of the project work, the student must be able to:
- Analyze a given (chosen) problem, collect data, select appropriate methods of analysis, put the results into perspective and conclude.
- Plan and carry out the project and related activities according to self-defined time schedule.


• Project description of the subject matter of the project, which is to be selected by the student  
• Carrying out the project including follow up on the time schedule and completion of the planned activities  
• Documentation of time used according to the project record  
• Application of computational technology relevant to the project
• Documentation and promotion of the project result in a report  
• Planning of the oral presentation of the project

Teaching methods and study activities

The bachelor project covers 15 ECTS credits for the student. Work load for one ECTS-point is 27,5 hours. The activities of the course are project work within the disciplines included in the project. Classes are not offered, but project supervision is provided according to the current rules.

Study Activity Model
According to the Study Activity Model, the workload is divided as follows:
Category 1, Initiated by the lecturer with the participation of lecturer and students: 4 hours – 1%
Category 2: Initiated by lecturer with participation of students: 8 hours – 2%
Category 3: Initiated by students with participation of students: 392,5 hours – 95 %
Category 4: Initiated by students with the participation of lecturer and students: 8 hours – 2%
