The abstract describes a DTU course, which is designed for the students to see a direct link between the taught topics and their future life as civil engineers. The course is built on a combination of excursions, hands-on experiences and lectures. The two first provides the students with a knowledge platform enabling them to understand better the in-depth lectures. Further industry involvement in both excursions and lectures helps the students visualizing themselves as civil engineers.
