Bachelor's course Civil and Environmental Engineering
The Civil Engineering Bachelor's program teaches students to design, construct and operate complex structures. Civil engineers are found wherever structural, traffic and hydrology-related knowledge is required. Planning, constructing, counseling and operating as well as economic and ecological thinking and acting, are the key aspects of their everyday work.
The program, which has a duration of six semesters, conveys to students basic knowledge in civil engineering along with the essential natural scientific methods.
Solid skills in the natural sciences, especially in mathematics and physics are prerequisite to pursue the program. Independency and the ability to learn on one's own, to revise the teaching content autonomously and to develop an individual time schedule are indispensable. Students should enjoy solving technical problems and dealing with tricky questions. In addition to this, they should have a distinct sense for spatial relationships.
