9 9 Motivation Large and ambitious construction projects require experts with a background at an academic level in the following topics: –Problem analysis in a realistic context. –Design of constructions that contribute to the solution of that problem. –Quality control during construction. –Support of its implementation in practice. –Making adaptations related to a changing environment and evolving requirements.

10 10 Difference Master and Bachelor Research now plays a central role Research: trying to expand the boundaries of our knowledge

11 11 Academic professionals realisation construction plan model problem communicate analyse model design implement steer justify innovate!

12 12 International program (1) Master programs fit in the international context They also prepare for an international career The program therefore is taught in English

13 13 International program (2) Courses with an international component Extra options: –Exchange programs (Erasmus, IRUN) –Master thesis abroad
