Division of Civil Engineering and Construction Management
The Division of Civil Engineering and Construction Management works with theoretical modelling and experimental characterisation of constructions, geotecnics, structures and construction and building materials.
About the Division of Civil Engineering and Construction Management
Our focus is on assessing safety and risk at multiple levels, from material and component scale to system level. In addition, the division works with the industry's user and working practices, framework terms and value, as well as develops theory and tools for robust decision-making to ensure both durable and economically optimized as well as climate-adapted and sustainable solutions.
