Building and construction engineering is a broad subject, covering many phases of the building process and preparing students for professional roles in the whole construction sector, from building and spatial planning via construction projection to building production.
The focus is on sustainable building, which includes energy-efficient and damp-proofing building and choosing the right materials. Designing an energy-efficient building requires skills in calculating the energy consumption to decide if it is a risk construction, and also knowledge of ventilation and heating systems and the environmental impacts of different forms of energy.
The construction subjects deal with construction calculations for the materials wood, steel and concrete, as well as geoconstruction.
In the building production area, the construction process and the legislation and regulations pertaining to the sector are treated, and also how to estimate construction costs and to plan time and resources in the process Today, new methods are used for cooperation in construction, which are designed to support sustainable production.
