Что я буду изучать?

The Master's Programme in Building Technology offers comprehensive academic and professional education in a variety of disciplines within civil and structural engineering.

Civil engineering plays a key role in creating safe and healthy built environments, which are essential elements of everyday life and well-being. Combining the global needs for energy efficiency and sustainability with the characteristics of a good living environment requires theoretical understanding, professional skills and a broad perspective.

The Master’s Programme in Building Technology deals with the design, construction, use and maintenance of civil engineering structures, such as buildings and bridges. With its four main topics – structural engineering, building performance, construction management and mineral-based materials – the programme offers knowledge and skills necessary for future careers in industry, research, education or government bodies. Based on your individual choices, you may specialise in topics like building energy use, building services technology, repair and maintenance, indoor air quality and fire safety engineering.

The programme strives for the development of working life skills: analytical and critical thinking; multidisciplinary teamwork and collaboration; and communication for scientific and technical professionals. Professional ethics and social and environmental responsibility are an integral part of the education we offer.


The programme includes six courses (totalling 30 credits) of common studies, which make up the autumn term of the first year. After the first term, you choose a specialisation within building technology or – by combining courses from different fields – gather a wider understanding of engineering applications related to building technology.

Technical knowledge is deepened by choosing six courses (30 credits) from the advanced course packages offered by the programme. The synthesis or specialisation of your studies can be further strengthened through 30 credits of elective studies, which may include courses offered by the study programme or other Aalto University courses. For those looking for specialisation, pre-defined course packages are also available.

Career prospects

As the need of civil engineers is undeniable for building and maintaining structures, there is a natural demand for professionals graduated in building technology. After graduation, students have typically worked with design, construction, project, and research tasks in the field of building technology. In later phases, duties may often be connected to the roles of advisor, administrator, manager or senior researcher. If not self-employed, a vast variety of possible employers can be found: national and international construction businesses as well as building materials industries. Positions also exist in the public sector, e.g. public administration, environmental organisations and institutions such as United Nations.

Master’s thesis

The master’s thesis (30 credits) is a piece of applied research conducted independently by the student. Its key goal is to solve a problem relevant to the field of study, based on existing scientific knowledge and in compliance with the principles of responsible conduct of research. Master’s theses are written on topics related to the advanced studies of the programme, agreed upon between the student and the supervising professor. A master’s thesis may be, for example, part of an ongoing research project of the department or a research and development project carried out for an industrial partner outside the university.
