Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

The six departments of the School of Engineering have been reorganised into three departments, which start operating on 1 January 2016:

Department of Built Environment
Department of Civil Engineering
Department of Mechanical Engineering

These old web pages of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will be available in the beginning of the year 2016. The pages are no longer updated.


The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has three research groups: Geoengineering, Transportation Engineering and Water and Environmental Engineering. The department provides research and teaching in fields of ever-increasing social importance. On the background there are the global trends like climate change, urbanization and increasing consumption of raw materials.

A functional community needs effective water, wastewater and waste management, sufficient water resources, smooth and safe transportation connections, environmentally friendly construction and maintenance of infrastructure, sustainable geo- and rock engineering and high level planning and research skills in development of urban structure and environment.
