We work with research and education in analysis, design, construction and operation of engineering systems for commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. Our main research areas are energy-efficient building design, indoor environment and building informatics.
Research divisions at The Department of Civil Engineering
Structural and Offshore Engineering
The subject area of the division includes structural modelling and analysis of constructions with special focus on offshore constructions such as wind turbines and platform constructions.
Our research lies mainly within traffic safety, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and road logistics.
Reliability, Dynamics and Marine Engineering
Our research and study activities are centered around challenges related to civil engineering structures like harbour structures, offshore structures, wind turbines and wave energy devices.
Structures, Materials and geotechnics
Our research field revolves around both theoretical and numerical modelling and experimental verification within the field of
structural mechanics, structural materials and geotechnics.
Water and Environment
We research in the hydraulic and hydrological problems in relation to environmental plants and projects and in the physical geography mainly aimed at environmental and resource issues.
