Notice Students who, during the 1st year of the master programme, have already followed a course that is equivalent to one of the courses offered in this specialisation, must substitute it with one or several courses chosen among the faculty's offering; these courses must be approved by the president of the panel for master studies.

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

Students studying for the Bachelors in Civil Engineering who have not chosen the appropriate option :
  • must take all the so-called "prerequisite" courses hereafter, if they were not taken during the 1st cycle. These courses must be taken during the 1st year of the masters and some 1st-year compulsory courses must be rolled over to the 2nd year.
  • must subsequently reduce the number of courses they choose to take in the 2nd year of the masters. If all the "prerequisite" courses must be taken, it will be impossible for them to choose which courses they take.
  • cannot choose the professional "management" focus.

The program adapted by these students has to receive the preliminary agreement of the Jury.
