Buildings are an important part of human society. From the moment that humans changed their lifestyle from nomadic to settling, buildings have become a necessity; a necessity that has been growing in complexity ever since. Where the first human beings simply needed a roof over their head and relied on farm animals and fire to keep them warm, now the modern human requires light, space and climate control. Furthermore, modern man requires a greater variety of buildings, from churches to temples, from badminton courts to football fields, from offices to train stations, and so on. Buildings with ever-increasing complexity and ever-increasing scale.
This is where the Building Engineer comes into play. The Building Engineer plays a vital role in making buildings. The complexity of all the different functions that a building fulfils needs to be analysed and controlled. With a broad background followed by specialisation as an educational starting point, the Building Engineer can assume different roles such as structural engineer, façade engineer, building manager, building services engineer, etc.

In order to spread the study load more evenly in time, the faculty has rescheduled some of the courses. Since this is decided upon after printing the booklet there can be inconsistencies. The rescheduling can become problematic for some students which is why U-BASE (among others) has demanded a transition agreement. Please refer to the following specification of the transition agreement for an updated status upon this. If you have any questions or problems please contact us.
