The degree program

Civil engineers are involved in the planning, construction, rehabilitation and maintenance of objects in the fields of civil engineering, hydraulic engineering and transport construction, including structures such as bridges, tunnels, skyscrapers, roads, canals, sewage treatment plants, but also offshore wind turbines and train stations, to name just a few examples. Interest in and enjoyment of mathematical and scientific subjects facilitates the study. The Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering can be divided into three sections:

  • Basic study (compulsory)
  • Consolidation studies (compulsory)
  • Specialization (elective)
Lectures of the undergraduate studies are based on beginner's study of the mathematical-scientific- and subject-specific topics (building construction, materials science, geodesy, mechanical engineering, etc.). The basic knowledge taught here in classical subject fields comprises structural engineering, geotechnology, civil engineering, traffic management, water management, building operation and building law. In the last semester, the students will choose a focus area from the subjects of civil engineering, water management or traffic management, depending on their inclinations and the activities they plan for their later lives.


Important information

  • Building-practical work at a scope of twelve weekly hours in total, at the latest until commencement of the fourth semester. Out of these, at least six weeks must be completed at a construction site; planning and office work is accepted from the remaining time. We recommend completing the internship before starting the studies.
  • This is also offered as a dual degree program (studies + vocational training in the building craft).


Professional perspectives

In the past, civil engineers mainly devoted themselves to the design and construction of drafting and building bridges, channels and streets. In the last decades, they developed the scientific elements and principles that enable them to create large-scape buildings today, including skyscrapers, industrial facilities, traffic and water buildings. In addition to the technical challenges, today, tasks of construction and project management are increasingly assigned to civil engineers.


Study organization

Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules

Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.

We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
