The Degree Programme in Civil Engineering and Urban Management celebrated 20 years!

Published Dec 06, 2023

The Master of Science in Civil Engineering and Urban Management (CSAMH) has been offered at KTH since 2003 and has during these years educated a large number of civil engineers to successful careers in Sweden and the world.
On Thursday 30 November, an anniversary event took place to celebrate the programme's 20 years at KTH.

The afternoon included presentations, mingling, a quiz and a buffet for past and present staff. Johan Silfwerbrand looked back at the historical roots of the Civil Engineering and Urban Management Programme, from 1628 when the Royal Land Survey Programme was established, via the merger of the civil engineering programmes in surveying and civil engineering in 2003, to the present day.

Eva Liedholm Johnsson, Director of First and Second Cycle Education (GA) and former Programme Director, and Joakim Riml, Programme Director, talked about the revision of the programme that was carried out in 2015, current activities and the vision for the future of education in the field of civil engineering.

"It was fun to meet current and formerly active colleagues in the programme and celebrate all the work that has been and is being done! Many of us have worked and are working to develop the Civil Engineering and Urban Management Programme. The teachers are very active both within teaching as well as in their fields of research and industry areas. There is great commitment to give students the knowledge and tools they need to meet current and future societal challenges," says Joakim Riml.

Eva Liedholm Johnsson agrees. "I really appreciate all the collaboration with colleagues, and it was great to have a reason to meet and celebrate! The civil engineering sector is an industry in constant development, and I am very proud of our industry-related education and links to Samhällsbyggnadslänken.", she says.
