What is it?
The civil engineering degree program covers the planning, static calculation and execution of construction projects in structural and civil engineering as well as infrastructure projects such as traffic routes and hydraulic engineering. It prepares students for the tasks of design, construction operations and planning of technical infrastructure and environmental technology.
In the 1st to 3rd semesters, students acquire knowledge of the mathematical-technical principles and the fundamental subjects of civil engineering. In stage 2 (4th - 6th semester), they choose one of the following three options for specialization:
- Structural engineering – structural design,
- Structural engineering - construction operations,
- Traffic and water.
Freely selectable modules of the respective areas of specialization are determined as part of a compulsory course guidance consultation. The degree program is completed by an internship and the bachelor thesis.
What can I do with it?
There are probably few degree programs that enable graduates to pursue such a wide range of professional activities. As a civil engineer you will find interesting jobs at construction companies, in the construction industry, in service companies, in public administration or in engineering offices dealing with consulting and planning.
