Master’s in Civil Engineering
Environmental, Geotechnical and Infrastructure Engineering
The 3-semester Master’s program builds consecutively on the 7-semester Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering and leads to a second professional qualification. The discipline "Environmental, Geotechnical and Infrastructure Engineering" provides specialist training in the design, dimensioning and construction of structures in the fields of environmental engineering, urban water management, hydraulic engineering, transport management and specialist foundation engineering.
Upon successful completion of this degree program, graduates possess comprehensive professional knowledge and the specialist technical and conceptual skills for solving complex problems in the field of civil engineering. They are able to weigh up alternatives, even when faced with incomplete information, to develop new ideas or procedures, which they can then apply and evaluate. As part of their complex responsibilities, they can lead groups or organizations and present their work results with confidence and competence. They are able to foster the professional development of others in a focused manner and lead discussions both specific to and transcending their field.
