Programme contents

You will get a comprehensive overview and insight into all areas of civil engineering: from structural engineering, construction industry and geotechnics to infrastructure management, with road and railroad engineering, resource management and hydraulic engineering.

Sound methodological as well as natural and engineering science knowledge is imparted. Great importance is attached to basic subjects such as mathematics, mechanics, structural analysis, engineering hydrology, construction industry and construction project management.

Analytical and interdisciplinary thinking will be trained. You will acquire skills and competencies to recognize and assess the interaction between technical developments and the environment. Semesters abroad are possible during the Bachelor's Programme.


The Programme-PRe-Phase serves to discuss the choice of Bachelor's Programme and it is not a selection method. It is divided into two parts, which must be completed online before the admission:

  • Online survey on the choice of Programme: It serves the purpose of self-assessment, reflection on the choice of Bachelor's Programme as well as for deepening the requirements and general conditions of the Programme.
  • Feedback on the level of knowledge: This is intended to test the necessary basic mathematical knowledge. It serves to determine the current level of knowledge.

Further information about the programme

Interest in technical-scientific processes and the solution of complex tasks, pleasure and willingness to work together with other planners as well as to work by yourself. For enrollment (admission) you need proof of eligibility to study.

As a graduate, there are development opportunities open to you in many different areas. You can expect a varied world of work, characterised by interdisciplinary cooperation. As a civil engineer, you design our technical environment, plan construction projects and infrastructures and play a crucial role in their implementation, maintenance and disposal.

You plan and implement measures for sustainability, protecting the environment and preventing disasters. Your professional life could be spent in engineering companies, construction companies, the building materials industry, the public sector and in universities and other research institutions.

It is possible to participate in exchange programmes as part of the course. A wide range of different places at partner universities are available to you for this purpose.
