Program description

Bachelor Civil Engineering

Planning, Decision-making, Building

It is difficult to imagine our everyday lives without bridges, tunnels, hydroelectric power plants, road and rail networks, or residential, office and industrial buildings. All of these are subject to increasingly higher demands on standards and functionality because our modern society requires reliable, efficient and safe infrastructure.

The curriculum begins with the fundamentals of mathematics and natural sciences, and a basic knowledge of engineering. These core competences are subsequently expanded and the foundations laid for the Master’s degree program. The Bachelor’s degree program concludes with a Bachelor’s thesis.
