Civil Engineering is a professional bachelor program in English at HZ University which specializes in Coastal Engineering. This area of civil engineering is related to above and below ground building, hydraulic engineering, road construction, pipeline design, bridges, dams, storm sewers, levees and canals.
Civil engineering is part of the Delta Academy: an academy for top programmes in the fields of water, land and living in delta areas. The Delta Academy offers programmes that are unique in Holland.

It is expected that by 2050 80% of the world's population will live in delta areas. In these areas, where rivers meet the sea, there are increasing challenges due to climate change. With your expertise as a civil engineer, you will tackle problems such as coastal safety and urban flooding and contribute to safety in deltas around the world. During your study, you learn everything about the design and building of large constructions and managing huge international projects. Examples include the Panama locks in the Panama Canal; the Channel tunnel that connects the United Kingdom with France; and the magnificent Palm Islands in Dubai, a design that could have been yours if you were already a civil engineer! Doing Civil Engineering at HZ means you are studying in the middle of a delta area: when walking out of the university of applied sciences, you will encounter your field of work all around you.
