Personnel placement, material costs, time investment, transport costs, sustainability, and energy efficiency - the interest in economic questions in the last decades has grown for the classic civil engineering specialization fields.
Plans, implementations, and interactions in not only construction management, but also in structural areas, in structural and underground engineering, hydraulic engineering and transport management must be economical. Here, the industrial engineers with a specialization in civil engineering can provide their skills in this cross-section.
The course of study Business Administration and Engineering with a Specialization in Civil Engineering at RWTH has a strong technical component in contrast to the programs at other universities and equips its students not only with economic expertise but also engineering expertise.
Students first acquire fundamental, theoretical knowledge: challenging studies in mathematics and mechanics provide the necessary understanding for technical principles, structuring concepts, and complex processes. The engineering units are supplemented with comprehensive units in business administration.
Starting in the third semester, students select a specialization from four options:
The Master course of study pursues education in one of the chosen specializations within civil engineering:
Construction Management and Geotechnics
Commerce and Spatial Planning
The detailed course of study layout is regularly published as addendum of the respective current exam regulations. You can find the link to the exam regulations at the bottom of this website.
Business Administrative Concentrations:
Students complete a total of 40 CP in business administration. 0 to 10 CP can be earned from the general electives and 30 to 40 CP from one of the following concentrations:
Employment is possible in both the technical and business career fields. Integrative and indisciplinary work highly suit graduates from this course of study. The professional profile of graduates differs according to the concentration of their studies. They are described above in the individual concentrations.
