Bachelor Civil Engineering and Geodesy until SoSe 21

Reliable calculations and data are needed for strong bridges, stable tunnels and high structures that withstand storms, snow loads, and earthquakes. Civil engineers are the ones doing this: they know exactly how to build the tallest buildings to make them stand securely, they address the challenges of a construction site, they look for new materials that are resistant, environmentally friendly and durable, they bend glass and print steel, build roads and stadiums and coordinate all the necessary processes. And thus build our environment a little better every day.

down to earth and out of the box

Graduates of the Bachelor's programme in Civil Engineering and Geodesy are qualified for a scientifically oriented professional activity in selected fields of civil engineering and geodesy.

Structure of the study programme

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and Geodesy is a six-semester course of study comprising 180 credit points (CP – Credit Points).It is subdivided into the basic course of study (Structure of the course of study ) (this includes a compulsory and an optional part), in which basic scientific and technical knowledge is taught, and the specialised course of study, in which students acquire specialist content from various profiles for a subsequent Master's course or their first professional activity.

The programme is divided into the following main components:

Study overview
    • The basic study period (modules totalling 87 CP), in which basic scientific and technical knowledge is taught.
  • Basic knowledge of the entire spectrum of civil engineering to the extent of 45 CP
  • Bachelor thesis in the scope of 9 CP
  • In the specialised course of study, the student must choose one of the following specialisations (scope of 36 CP), in which the subject matter is acquired for a subsequent Master's degree course or a first professional activity
    • Constructive Civil Engineering
    • Construction Management
    • Infrastructure
    • Water and Environment
  • additionally supplementary modules of max. 6 CP from the specialised course of study
  • within the framework of a studium generale, courses from the field of humanities & social sciences or interdisciplinary courses must be acquired by the student in the amount of 6 CP.

At the end of their studies, students show with their Bachelor's thesis that they can independently work on a problem from the field of civil engineering using scientific methods.

You can find details about the programme in the Study Regulations and the Module Handbook, which you can find on the download page of the Office for Student Affairs . The study and examination plans are also stored there.

And because something can always change:

With us you can study according to your interests. Even the basic course of study offers possibilities for individual, flexible study planning:

  • Compulsory optional part of the basic study period: It contains lectures which, in an application-oriented manner, lead into the field of geodesy or civil engineering.
  • Choice of modules from the humanities and social sciences or other interdisciplinary courses as part of the basic study period
  • Choice of the profile for the specialised course of study
  • Within the specialised course of study, also a maximum of two modules can be exchanged for equivalent modules in engineering, the natural sciences or the humanities.
  • Choice of topic for the Bachelor's thesis according to interest
  • Credit points can be earned during a stay abroad through recognized equivalent modules.
