the study program starts with the winter semester 2021/22
Civil Engineering – down to earth and out of the box
Strong bridges, stable tunnels and tall structures that can withstand storms, snow loads and earthquakes require reliable calculations and data. Civil engineers do this: they know exactly how to build the tallest buildings so that they stand safely, face the challenges that a construction site brings, search 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.
Graduates of the Bachelor's degree programme in Civil Engineering and Geodesy are qualified for a scientifically oriented professional activity in selected fields of civil engineering and geodesy.
The programme is divided into the following main components:
Engineering (cumpolsory area)
In the first semesters, the basic knowledge of the natural sciences and technology is taught intensively in the compulsory engineering area (modules amounting to 91 CP).
Specialised course of study (Compulsory area)
- Basic knowledge of the entire spectrum of civil engineering to the extent of 47 CP
- Bachelor thesis to the extent of 12 CP
Specialised course of study (Elective area)
Students can select subject modules (24 CP) in the elective area according to their own interests or along recommended career paths. In doing so, competences are acquired for a subsequent Master's degree programme or a first professional activity.
The following occupational profiles are recommended
- (opens in new tab) General building construction
- (opens in new tab) Construction management
- (opens in new tab) Digital construction information management
- (opens in new tab) Urban Land Development And Real Estate Valuation
- (opens in new tab) Spatial and Infrastructure Planning
- Traffic Engineering
- Traffic management
- (opens in new tab) Earth Observation and Positioning (Geodesy)
- (opens in new tab) Engineering Geodesist (Geodesy)
- (opens in new tab) Landmanagement and Geoinformation
General elective area
In preparation for the subsequent bilingual Master's degree in “Civil Engineering”, students can make up for any English language skills they lack in the elective area or acquire modules (amounting to 6 CP) from the entire range of courses offered by TU Darmstadt as an interdisciplinary course within the framework of a “Studiums Generale”.
At the end, students demonstrate with their Bachelor's thesis that they can independently work on a problem from the field of civil engineering using scientific methods.
