The goal of the teaching staff of the work area is to provide students with a comprehensive education in transportation. Special attention is paid to the knowledge of system interrelationships and the relation to practice. In the sense of sustainable solutions and a sustainable design of mobility and transport, special consideration is also given to limited resources in terms of space, environment and energy and to economic efficiency.
Bachelor´s Programme - Civil and Environmental Engineering - Module Transportation Engineering
In the bachelor's degree program in Civil and Environmental Engineering, the module "Traffic" teaches the fundamentals in the areas of traffic planning, traffic engineering, traffic management and in the planning, construction and operation of road and rail infrastructures. In exercise work, the theoretical knowledge is applied in an exemplary and practice-oriented manner.
Module Transportation Engineering
Infrastructure Road - VO2, 2,5 ECTS
Traffic Planning - VO2, 2,5 ETCS
Infrastructure Road - UE2, 2,5 ECTS
Infrastructure Rail - VO2, 2,5 ETCS
Infrastructure - Rail - UE2, 2,5 ETCS
Master´s Programm - Environmental Engineering
Within the framework of the master's degree program in environmental engineering, the above-mentioned subject areas can be deepened, expanded and supplemented. The modules offered enable the acquisition of in-depth knowledge of the interactions between transport and land use and the impact on the environment. They impart competences in traffic planning, traffic engineering and traffic management, in public transport and freight traffic, in railroad engineering as well as in road construction and maintenance. They enable students to solve railroad and road engineering problems, also with regard to operation and maintenance management, and provide competence in the planning, construction and operation of high-performance railroads and freight transport systems.
Master´s Programm - Civil Engineering
With this specialization offer, students of the Master's program in Civil Engineering who want to work in the transport sector in the future, e.g. in planning and construction of transport facilities, can also acquire the corresponding competences within the scope of the elective options.
