What does this program cover?

The program covers how to design and plan the construction of buildings, roads, dams, rail networks, and building pits. All such undertakings significantly alter the environment. In this respect, civil engineering categorically distinguishes itself from architecture. For the civil engineer is primarily concerned with structural safety and functionality, on the basis of which the planning and designing of structures first becomes possible.

The bachelor's program in Civil Engineering conveys the fundamental disciplines required for modern construction work. Central to the program is the conception, planning, production and operation of construction sites and associated infrastructure. These skills are taught in thorough theoretical as well as practical courses in advanced mathematics, applied mechanics, materials science, construction processes, civil engineering informatics, statics, and structural physics. In addition to the principles of engineering and natural sciences, students have the chance to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of hydraulic engineering, material-specific issues and transportation technologies. Special attention is paid throughout to the interrelated areas of safety, economics and ecology.
