Degree Programme in Construction Engineering
Employment after graduation

Demand for international construction experts is increasing continuously in international construction projects in Finland and abroad. The tasks of engineering graduates may be related to the construction of new premises and to the repair of existing structures in engineering, development or project management in Finland and abroad. Daily tasks may involve design, product development, supervision in an official capacity, or trading.

Study paths

Construction Engineering studies focus on structural engineering, especially on steel construction engineering. Studies include lots of mechanics, mathematics, technical drawings and CAD. Understanding of the structures, and 3-D visualization skills are important.
Students can choose to study part of their degree in Finnish in HAMK's Finnish language structural engineering programme.

Competence achieved

Construction professionals constantly monitor developments in the sector, they are familiar with the latest design and production techniques and can manage modern management techniques, and they are capable of applying them to practical situations at work. Construction engineers must have a view of the entire construction process in addition to their specialty. Work requires, in addition to professional knowledge management, problem-solving abilities, financial thinking, management skills, cooperation skills, IT skills and language skills. A degree completed in English provides construction engineers with good language skills and international know-how, making it possible to work anywhere in the world.
