In 2005, the Structural Engineering divisions at the four technical universities in Sweden arranged a series of graduate courses. This was highly appreciated by the PhD students and it was decided to continue this series of graduate courses in the form of a graduate school.

Who should attend?

The courses are primarily designed for PhD-students at technical universities and to some extent civil engineering students in the late stages of their undergraduate education. Many of the courses can also be of great interest for professionals in the building and civil engineering sector as a part of specialist training.

Registration fee

The basic registration fee per course is SEK 20000. For PhD-students from research groups within the Structural Engineering field of “Sveriges Bygguniversitet” participation is free. For other PhD students information about payment can be obtained from the contact person for each course. The cost for literature and other course material as well as travel and accommodation has to be covered by each participant.

Further information and registration

Registration for participation in a specific course shall be made to the contact person of the course. This should be done not later than four weeks before the start of the course, unless a specific deadline is given in the course description. PhD students that include a course within the program in their individual study plan are recommended to pre-register as soon as possible. Note that a course may be cancelled if the number of pre-registered participants is too low.
