Bachelor programme Civil Engineering

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The degree programme is characterised by scientific depth, close relationship with practice, method orientation and interdisciplinary work on complex tasks. The aim of the programme is to enable graduates to develop scientifically founded solutions for subject-specific issues autonomously. Students will receive a research-oriented education, which provides the prerequisites to acquire both scientific and economic and also practice-oriented skills in all subject-related fields.

Definition of the field of studies

Civil Engineering shapes the technical environment. It designs, plans, constructs, builds and operates structures and is responsible for the infrastructure. Tasks also include the development of concepts, analysis and expertise. The work becomes evident in visible and non-visible structures, e.g. bridges, sewage treatment plants.


The discipline consists of several compulsory subjects and elective subjects that can be chosen freely. The six modules are: scientific basics, subject-specific basics, structural engineering, building construction and geotechnical engineering, infrastructure planning and infrastructure management as well as soft skills and elective subjects that can be chosen freely. In the modules soft skills and elective subjects the courses building legislation and industrial plant legislation and introduction to data processing are compulsory. The other elective subjects the students can choose freely. These can be: mathematics advanced course, chemistry advanced course, physics 1 and 2 advanced course, CAD 1 and 2, CAE statics, mathematical software for engineers, technical drawing, building regulations and technical English. It is possible to do a work placement of at least seven weeks instead of some elective subjects. In this case students have to submit an application for the recognition of the work placement as an elective subject and a technical report about the work carried out during this placement. The degree programme concludes with a bachelor thesis.
