Goal of the studies

The student who has completed the programme understands the varieties of data created in the real-estate and construction industry and has hands-on capabilities to apply, develop and implement modern computational methods and tools to process it, with the purpose of increased quality, sustainability, productivity, and security of construction.

The student is familiar with

  • heterogeneous models about built environment (building information models, city models, infrastructure models), and
  • sensor and condition data generated by building automation systems and IoT systems.

The student has skills to

  • utilize computational tools to query, process, and manage the data, and
  • develop and extend models and computational tools for tasks in the construction domain.

Structure of studies

Extent of the studies is 60 ECTS credit points and duration 1,5 years.

The programme consists of

  • Common studies 20 ECTS
  • Elective studies 10 ECTS and
  • Master’s Thesis 30 ECTS


  • BIM, GIS and openBIM (IFC, bSDD, BFC)
  • ISO 19650 standard for BIM-based information management
  • Imaging (3D scanning, depth cameras, and point clouds)
  • Sensing (BAS and IoT as well as positioning)
  • AI, machine learning, and knowledge graphs
  • Linked Data and ontologies in construction
  • Security and privacy in construction
  • Computational design (including design optimization)
  • Digital twins in construction (as-built models, update processes, sensor data integration, visualization)
  • Product data, procurement, and supply-chain management (GS1, Digital Link)
  • Digitalized construction management (lean construction, takt-time planning)

NB! Studies will be arranged as day-time studies and students need to be prepared to attend the lectures from Monday to Friday. The schedules will be published closer to the start of the academic year. Please also see the Material for New Degree Students: Computing in Construction, MEng.
