The degree program
Civil engineers are involved in the planning, construction, renovation and maintenance of objects in the fields of civil engineering, hydraulic engineering and transport construction. This includes 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. An interest in and enjoyment of mathematical and scientific subjects facilitate the degree program. The bachelor's program in Civil Engineering can be divided into three sections:
- Basic study (compulsory)
- Consolidation studies (compulsory)
- Specialization (elective)
The basic studies of mathematics and natural sciences and the first more specific subjects (building construction, materials science, geodesy, construction mechanics, etc.) are followed by the lectures of the consolidation studies. The basic knowledge of the classic subject fields taught here comprises structural analysis, geotechnology, structural engineering, traffic management, water management, building operation and construction law. In the last semester, students will choose an area of special focus from the subjects of structural engineering, water management or traffic management, depending on their inclinations and the activities planned in their later professional lives.
- Practical construction work for a total of 12 weeks at the latest until the start of the 4th semester. Out of these, at least 6 weeks must be completed at a construction site; planning and office work is accepted for the remaining time. We recommend completing the entire internship before starting the degree program.
- Also offered as a dual study program with practical integration (degree program + practical work in the company).
In the past, civil engineers mainly devoted themselves to the design and construction of bridges, canals and roads. Over the last decades, they have developed the scientific basics that today enable them to create large-scale buildings including skyscrapers, industrial facilities, traffic and hydraulic structures. In addition to the technical challenges, tasks of construction and project management are increasingly assigned to civil engineers today.
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module handbooks/internship regulations
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
