Course content

Main topics are: Construction Engineering, subsurface operations, Production management in building and construction.

Learning outcome

To convey in-depth knowledge, both theoretical and practical, in a limited field within construction engineering and production managment, e.g. planning and construction of underground spaces, subsea tunnels, ventilation of tunnels, production management, productivity.

The student is able to use relevant knowledge and methods related to the focus area, e.g. design and plan underground space, measure and analyse productivity.

General competence:
The student may perform an analysis of alternatives in a construction project.
The student may use scientific litterature and update herself on current research in a specific topic.

Learning methods and activities

The teaching may be given as lectures, seminars, laboratory teaching or guided self-study. Exercises and term report.

Compulsory assignments

  • Individual and group tasks

Further on evaluation

The course assessment includes a final oral exam (51%) and an individual report on a selected topic (49%). The results for the parts are assigned a letter grade.
