Adjusted programme for student of the Bachelors in Civil Engineering who have not taken the " Geological Engineering" option

First Year

Compulsory prerequisites

Les bacheliers ingénieurs civils qui n'ont pas choisi l'option appropriée :
- doivent suivre tous les cours (ou leur équivalent) dits "prérequis" figurant ci-après, s'ils ne les ont pas suivis en 1er cycle. Ces cours doivent être suivis pendant le 1er master et certains cours obligatoires de 1re année doivent être reportés en 2e année.
- doivent réduire en conséquence le nombre de cours au choix à suivre en 2e master. Si tous les cours "prérequis" doivent être suivis, il leur sera impossible de suivre ces cours au choix.
- n'ont pas la possibilité de choisir la finalité spécialisée "gestion".
Le programme adapté de ces étudiants doit recevoir l'accord préalable du Jury.

Adjusted programme for Bachelors in engineering sciences, bioengineering orientation

This programme is defined in relation with the Bachelor in Bioengineering organized by the Faculty of Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech of the ULg, by the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the UCL and by the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the ULB. It is likely to be greatly modified in the Bachelor in Bioengineering from other institutions depending on their knowledge and courses not followed whilst remaining within the limits of 75-60 ECTS.

First Year

Compulsory prerequisites

Programme organised for engineering sciences undergraduates by the University of Liège¿s Faculty of Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, the Catholic University of Louvain¿s Faculty of Science and Technology and by the Free University of Brussels Faculty of Applied Sciences.
It is likely to be significantly modified for undergraduates in engineering sciences, specialising in bioengineering from other institutions, according to what they have and haven¿t already learnt, while remaining within the limits of the 75+60 credits.


Undergraduates in engineering sciences, specialising in bioengineering:
- must attend all the required courses (or their equivalent) mentioned hereafter, if they didn¿t do so during the first cycle. These courses must be taken during the first year of the master¿s degree and certain compulsory first-year courses must be transferred to the second year.
- must subsequently reduce the number of courses chosen during the second year of the master¿s. If all the ¿required¿ courses must be taken, they won¿t be able to choose which courses they take.
- can¿t choose ¿management¿ as a specialisation.
