The Master's degree program "Civil Engineering" is aimed at graduates of a relevant bachelor's program as well as at beginners from related bachelor's programs. The aim of the course is to prepare students to take on leadership responsibilities in the construction industry. Depending on the area of specialisation, students are increasingly taught advanced economic and organisational skills or constructive and construction culture skills. The course design is characterised by a high degree of practical relevance and aims at a quick career entry. Students can choose between two specialisation options:
The specialisation in design and construction deals with design and modelling as well as with the calculation and planning of load-bearing structures in structural and infrastructure engineering. The inclusion of the design in the education is the basis of the engineer's (structural engineer) participation in the design process of the structures.
The specialisation Project Management focuses on the construction and organisational aspects of civil engineering. Here, management skills are taught that are closely linked to the fields of law, economics and construction operations. An important supplement is the teaching of social skills such as leadership responsibility and employee management.
The essential contact to the economy is particularly promoted through cooperative project work in the 3rd semester. Here students have the opportunity to work on their assignments in and with a cooperating company for a period of at least 5 weeks. For those who want to devote themselves to research topics instead, the construction laboratory is open to them: Scientific questions can be dealt with there, also within cooperative research projects, with professional support. Further offers to students include participation in conferences, symposia and external specialist lectures - the course encourages students to independently establish a network of specialist experts during their studies.
