Study modes in Construction Engineering

The studies include traditional lectures, laboratory works, working in the groups, visits to companies and building sites and project works.

Keeping students central is our principle in everything we do.

In Construction engineering students will study together in weekdays monday to friday between 8-16. Studying is equivalent to working at a job: the student is present and works together with others in a diverse way.

Daily learning situations could be:

  • Traditional classroom learning.
  • Laboratory work and exercises.
  • Learning by doing practical exercises, projects etc.
  • Learning at the workplace – projects from working life, an internship etc.
  • E-learning at home or anywhere.

Please note that there might be a tuition fee in Denmark for non-EU students.

Work placement

Work placement

Work placement is a part of studies, where students become familiar with the working life and are able to apply learnt knowledge in practice. It is also an important way to get contacts to the working life.

Length​ of work placement is 5 months and it is worth 30 credits. Work placement could be done any time during the studies. Common practice is to make it during summers.​
