Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hidro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismical areas and others. The prerequisites for studying civil engineering include mathematics, physics, project management and design among others. The students can specialize in a variety of sub-topics like: Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Earthquake Engineering Costal Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Materials Engineering or Urban Engineering.
Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.
For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.
Thinking City: The Dynamics of Making Amsterdam is organised by the Graduate School of Social Sciences, Centre for Urban Studies of the University of Amsterdam in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of TU Delft.

The Semester Abroad program is offered through the Technion International School and is taught in English and/or Hebrew.
This Helsinki Summer School course takes a look at the welfare city as a sustainable model of urban development. A welfare city, such as Helsinki, promotes the wellbeing of its citizens, sustains a balance between the needs of both nature and the people, and responds to social and ecological awareness alike. Or does it? The course uses lectures, workshops and excursions in Helsinki to examine what makes the Finnish capital a welfare city.

The Engineering & Science Courses Summer School Program is an opportunity for outstanding postgraduate and senior undergraduate students from all over the world, interested in enhancing their academic profile with a rigorous and challenging academic experience at Israel’s oldest university and premier center for science, technology and applied sciences.
This key introductory Level 1 course examines the range of human activity that is ’engineering‘, from design concepts to the manufacture of products. It introduces the context in which engineers operate –including issues such as product safety and patent law – and looks at current engineering practice. It considers some of the developments in engineering methods and applications that will shape the future. The course is ideal if you are considering studying engineering at higher levels and wish to acquire more specialised skills.
This course is a compulsory module of the Open University’s Master of Engineering and postgraduate Diploma in Engineering programmes if you haven’t successfully completed Key skills for professional engineers (T397) as part of your undergraduate studies.
The summer module ''Civil Engineering and Design'' aims at gaining professional competences in the field of building information modeling and computer visualization as well as development of creative thinking and non-standard approach application. The program is oriented on international students, whose major is Civil Engineering, Architecture, Art and Design, Information Technologies and Design.
In these courses, we offer the opportunity to join two modules of the specialisation period of the master programme: one module in the specialisation of your choice, and one elective module allowing you to tailor the study program to your own needs and interest.
Through practical work on a real life problem the student will learn about issues pertinent to the arctic region within one or more of the areas of civil engineering, energy and environmental engineering.
The course foresees both the development of the interpretation and analytical tools and the identification of the problems that need to be addressed by the project. The final output shall lay upon the new urban design, a new strategic and visionary dimension, in which functionality, aesthetics and landscape all contribute to the search for a dialogue with the context and for a new identity for the project area.
