Bachelor's in Civil Engineering - Cooperative Degree
The 7-semester cooperative Bachelor’s program in Civil Engineering leads to a first professional qualification. In a cooperative degree course, students are trained both at university and in their host company.
Upon successfully completing their studies, graduates will have acquired extensive and comprehensive knowledge of their profession. This includes fundamental scientific principles, their practical application and a critical understanding of the most important theories and methods in civil engineering, while taking into account developments in the field. They are equipped with a very broad range of methods for dealing with complex problems in their field of professional activity and have acquired the skills to develop new solutions and evaluate these, with due regard to a diverse range of norms and constantly changing demands.
In addition to their professional training, students acquire the skills of teamwork, complex thinking, creativity and imagination in problem solving, decisiveness, assertiveness and flexibility, as well as socially responsible and environmentally conscious behaviour.
The program concludes with the academic degree of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) which is necessary for obtaining the authorization of the Thuringian Chamber of Engineers to submit building documents and enables students to proceed to the consecutive 3-semester Master's program.
Special features of the cooperative degree program
The students are employed by their host company and receive an employment contract with pay. This contract guarantees, for example, that the student will be able to attend lectures and take examinations at the university in order to successfully complete their studies.
