Faculty of Civil Engineering
The Faculty of Civil Engineering has provided five decades of well-established and renowned education in the field of engineering. Due to recent structural changes in the business world, the teaching and research programme of the faculty has been considerably extended and adjusted to meet new requirements, based on the complex structure of the faculty, which is unique in Germany.
The traditional degree course in Civil Engineering has been restructured and designed to ensure compatibility with international degree courses. Degree courses which have been added, i.e. Management (Construction, Real Estate, Infrastructure) and Infrastructure and Environmental Studies follow this development by consistently extending the fields of study for civil engineering with interfacing competencies for other areas of study.
The degree course for Building Materials Engineering offered by three Thüringen universities uses the latest teaching technology (including teleteaching).
Graduates of the Structural Engineering Teaching Degree ensure that training at vocational schools for skilled workers in the building industry is of a high standard, and meets practical requirements.
The faculty can register over 300 new students each year and is also able to provide a wide range of scientific services for research and development and other services to the business community. At present, nearly 1500 students are registered at the faculty.
