What is this study programme all about?

This is about the science behind one of man's oldest needs: building. In four semesters of basic studies, everything revolves around the essential tasks of civil engineering: planning, design, calculation and construction.

This is where you will discover such exciting topics as the new construction and conversion of buildings, structures and facilities, their specialist and static-constructive processing, construction calculation, project and construction management, planning of urban infrastructure and hydraulic engineering. You then decide on an area of specialisation:

  • Structural engineering
  • Water and traffic engineering

Your studies will be rounded off by a practical semester as an engineering assistant at a construction company, an engineering office or an authority, possibly abroad.

What can I do with it after graduation?

Your career opportunities are as varied as your studies. For example, exciting tasks await you in the planning and calculation of buildings, structures and facilities or in design and construction in engineering and planning offices or construction companies.

In addition, such new political and social developments as the transformation of energy systems through the use of regenerative energies or demographic change and the resulting densification of cities are constantly creating new challenges for your future profession.

What makes this study programme special?

Not least the close cooperation with other study programmes, such as architecture, wood engineering or restoration as well as other faculties and universities abroad.

In addition, there are opportunities to apply the skills and competences you have acquired in the practical semester, in applied research in laboratories and workshops and in international workshops and excursions.

We also attach great importance to the fact that you as a student can play an active role in shaping and further developing the study programme by being actively involved in committee work.
