Recommended course sequence for Bachelor in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Qualification Profile and Skills

Due to the diversity and magnitude of tasks, civil engineering decisively contributes to the overall economic output and is of high economic relevance. This variety of activities and the close interaction of civil and environmental engineering with natural sciences, economics and law, and the rapid advances in construction and environmental technologies make the training of students all the more demanding. Within the context of the bachelor's programme, the following skills are to be developed and promoted:

Scientific skills:
by in-depth training in the basic principles and methods of natural sciences, by promoting analytical, interdisciplinary and networked thinking and the ability of students to think critically, by promoting abstraction and modeling skills.

Engineering skills:
by promoting students' understanding of complex interrelations and engineering problems through research-based instruction, by developing expertise in solving core tasks of engineering practice, by realising the creative potential of students to solve complex practical problems independently and by training them in modern IT, management and presentation methods.

Social skills:
by promoting team skills and by acquiring further knowledge in foreign languages.

Expected Learning Outcomes

Graduates are able to elaborate, evaluate and implement scientific developments in the core fields of civil and environmental engineering and to apply them in interdisciplinary contexts. They possess scientifically well-founded theoretical and methodical problem-solving skills in order to quickly gain an understanding of new subjects and to apply civil and environmental engineering issues.

Future Prospects: Occupational Profiles and Career Opportunities

The career fields of graduates of the Bachelor's Programme Civil and Environmental Engineering cover a wide range of subjects from feasibility studies, planning, construction design and analysis to the realization, operation, maintenance and renovation of constructions like buildings, bridges, transport infrastructure, water supply facilities and power stations. Due to the important role attributed to the protection of the environment and the protection against natural hazards, the study programme also focuses on the civil engineering-related disciplines of environmental engineering like traffic planning, flood  and avalanche protection, protection against noise, and the treatment of waste water and solid waste. The bachelor's programme prepares graduates for occpuational opportunities as engineers and for a related master's programme.
