“You can find me in Building Materials. Together we will apply in actual practice what you learned in the lecture. This is how theory and practice are brought together.”
Ralf Menze, research associate

What is this study programme all about?

This study programme combines construction engineering know-how with management skills – a combination that is in high demand on the job market. You will also strengthen your communicative and methodical skills.

You have the choice between two fields of study: structural engineering or civil engineering. You will receive solid technical instruction in both areas, which also includes the increasingly important field of construction in existing buildings.

Structural engineering combines architectural subjects with construction-specific management subjects. In civil engineering, you combine the management subjects with the subjects in civil engineering. Both fields of study have a strong practical orientation and contents such as project planning, management and control, construction industry as well as construction and contract law.

What can I do with it after graduation?

From the project idea to the planning and execution of the construction up to the commissioning of the building or other project, you can participate in the entire process of the realization of a construction project. Your employers can be construction companies, planning and project control offices as well as consulting companies.

In addition, construction departments in the public sector and large industrial companies also offer a wide range of job opportunities. Or you can blaze your own trail: This study programme prepares you optimally for setting up your own office, once you have gathered some professional experience.

What makes this study programme special?

Management skills are increasingly in demand in the construction industry. As a graduate, you are particularly sought-after and benefit from our close contacts to the business world. You are well prepared for your professional life thanks to the practical relevance of your studies: In small project teams, you will regularly put what you have learned into actual practice.

During the many excursions, you will get insight into real large-scale projects. A ten-week practical phase in the seventh semester makes for a smooth transition into professional life.
