The Master of Science Civil Engineering course enables a broad technical education to be combined with a simultaneous specialization in a sub-area of ??civil engineering. With a variety of module combinations and options along the various subject areas, the course can be tailored to the student's personal interests. A mentoring system serves as a supervisory support when creating the individual study plans. The broad subject-specific orientation as a central aspect of the course remains guaranteed with the subject-specific elective area despite these individual specialization options. As an alternative to the individual structuring of the course, a scientific focus can also take place.
During the studies, stays abroad for study semesters or to work on the master’s thesis are welcomed by the department.
The construction, planning, construction organization and finally the construction itself belong to the main field of activity of civil engineers. In doing so, they not only take on classic building planning, but also turn to infrastructural measures such as the construction and maintenance of traffic routes or drinking water supply systems. Working with CAD applications for computer-aided design plays an important role in this.
The energetic renovation of buildings is an increasingly important part of their work . They investigate the question of how buildings and systems can be designed to be as efficient as possible from an energetic point of view, and weigh up the use of renewable energies.
Civil engineers check the feasibility of architectural building projects , calculate their financing and include safety standards. If necessary, they then take over facility management .
Employers for civil engineering graduates include construction companies, engineering offices, real estate companies, IT companies, transport companies, specialist authorities and associations, the construction machinery industry and the building materials industry.
It is therefore important, in addition to studying, to gather your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
