Basic Education

Berg Construction Technology provides a total of 13 courses, including three courses at the basic level and 10 courses at the advanced level. We have on average about 30 students per course and our course evaluations are generally good. For the academic year 09/10 was the average score on our courses 3.8 out of 5.

Undergraduate education is closely linked to our research, because we use parts of our research and research in teaching. Researchers actively involved in undergraduate education as widely as possible. One of the research subject teachers, Catrein Edelbro, received the award this year's best teachers 2010th

The number of students who carry out thesis work in mountain construction technology is at a level of 8-12 students each year. Diploma work is usually performed in cooperation with companies or in research projects conducted in the research subject group. Get in touch with someone in the department if you are interested in doing thesis work in mountain construction technology.

Postgraduate education

Graduation of licentiate degrees and PhDs has varied during the 2000s. On average, we have examined about 2 licentiates per year. Between 2011 and 2012 we will be able graduates 80-10 doctors. In the future, the aim is at least 1-2 doctors per year. The projects that students work in can be found under Research.

Programmes

We participate in courses in the following programs:

  • Master of Science in Civil Engineering (V)
  • Master of Natural Resource Technology (NRT)
  • B.Sc. Natural Resource Technology (NRT)
  • (International), Masters program Civil Engineering with specialization in soil and rock

Our research topic, together with Geotechnical primary responsibility for the successful master's program, Civil Engineering, specializing in soil and rock (Mining and Geotechnical Engineering), where we also are responsible for most of the courses. Catrin Edelbro is currently training leaders for the program.
