Bauingenieurwesen (Civil Engineering) (Master of Science)

Civil engineers are those who design and modify our constructed environment in a future-oriented manner – an occupation that involves planning, design, construction and completion of buildings and structures.

Course of Study

  • Duration: 4 semesters
  • Degree: Master of Science

The ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is used throughout and greatly simplifies the process of evaluating and recognizing academic achievement attained at other institutions of higher education. These credits confirm that the student has successfully completed the subject as well as the required course work for the subject.

Project study is an essential aspect of the degree programme. Each semester, the projects offer students an opportunity to conduct practice-oriented, comprehensive and interdisciplinary work with buildings and structures in their life cycles. This includes the process of planning, construction, usage, conversion, renovation and demolition.
