Civil engineers are involved both in engineering and in the organization of engineering projects. They are experts who combine technical know-how with ‘soft skills’, such as communication, project management and process management.
The English-taught Civil Engineering programme at University of Twente (UT) will teach you about all these aspects. Our programme focuses on three core themes: construction, transport and water. In learning about construction, you will study the functional design of structures and the management of the construction process.
Transport is about the combination of infrastructure, mobility and sustainable transport systems. Studying water and water management involves disciplines such as fluid mechanics and dynamics, and areas like water and coastal management, reservoirs, water flows and flood protection.
The Civil Engineering programme prepares you for positions that focus on building and construction, but also on the many organizational aspects involved. There is a great demand for people who feel at home in both areas – in The Netherlands and abroad. In the business world, demand for engineers from Twente is high. One hundred per cent of students who complete their Master's degree at the UT have a job within three months. Read more about the job possibilities.

Students from outside the Netherlands should have a pre-university secondary education comparable to the Dutch VWO diploma, with high passing grades in Mathematics and Physics as required subjects.
Dutch VWO Diploma
You will be directly admitted to the Bachelor’s programme in Civil Engineering if you possess a Dutch VWO diploma with a profile in 'Natuur & Techniek'. You may also be eligible to start the programme with a profile in 'Natuur & Gezondheid', but only with the subjects 'Wiskunde B' and 'Natuurkunde'.
Studyportals Tip: Students should consider taking one of the Pre-Bachelor's below. these courses will be necessary if:
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
