« terug naar Staalconstructeur BSEng Meld je aan voor deze opleiding

The aim of the course is to provide participants the basic knowledge required to independently make structural calculations. To this end, students are trained in constructive skills at HBO (higher vocational education) level.

In order to meet the demand for quickly employable engineers, and in collaboration with the Dutch Concrete Association (Betonvereniging), Bouwen met Staal organizes the Concrete Engineer BSEng and Steel Engineer BSEng courses.

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • test for compliance with standards;
  • perform a simple check of a frame calculation;
  • check computer calculations according to rules of thumb.

The study program consists of approximately 75% general subjects (such as mechanics and general construction: concrete, steel, and wood) and 25% steel-related subjects. Graduates from this course will be eligible for the Master program, Steel Engineer MSEng.


HBO – higher vocational education
In combination with a completed HBO level prior education, completion of the course provides 400 Knowledge Units for the Engineers’ Register.


1 year (36 afternoon-evenings).

Classes take place weekly on Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.


After passing the exams, the student will receive the Steel Engineer BSEng degree.

For whom?

The course is intended for HBO-level structural, civil, or mechanical engineering graduates without a constructive graduation program in steel structures, and for graduates from the Structural Steel Design Engineer BmS or Concrete Engineer MBO+ courses. Please submit a copy of the relevant certifications when signing up.

Costs and course material

The course is given in collaboration with the Dutch Concrete Association. For Bouwen met Staal member companies, the course costs € 4,470 plus VAT, which includes lecture notes and exam fees but does not include textbooks. The regular price is € 5,260 plus VAT. Besides the issued course material, students must purchase various books and standards themselves. The costs of these additional materials can range from € 350 to € 700, depending on the publications the student already owns. Graduates from a Concrete Engineer BSEng course are eligible for certain exemptions and are therefore subject to different rates.
