The new study options form an ensemble that connects students with research in their fields of study. Sustainable Communities introduces students to the planning and design of large systems, such as residential areas. Energy and Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering emphasise functional buildings, structures and energy systems. Students of Real Estate Economics and Geoinformatics will have the expertise and digital know-how needed to manage the life cycles of systems.
'Making the relevant master's programmes more visible within our study options will help future applicants figure out what they will be studying and what their study path might look like. Studies will still be flexible and students will have the freedom to design their own study paths. These changes will also have some effect on student intake numbers,' comments Professor Jani Romanoff, vice dean for education at the School of Engineering.
