    Master's Program Sustainable Engineering of Infrastructure

    The practically oriented Master's program in Sustainable Engineering of Infrastructure is taught in English and follows on consecutively from a 7-semester Bachelor's program in Civil Engineering. After a standard period of study of 3 semesters, it leads to a second professional and academic degree.

    Students are also given the opportunity to complete an additional semester in order to carry out further scientific work at a research institution or during an engineering placement.

    Interested students who have a 6-semester Bachelor's degree can be admitted to the Master's program, subject to special conditions and decisions on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the director of studies or academic advisor.

    Study objectives

    The Master's program concludes with the academic degree Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) and is designed to enable students to work internationally in the following professional fields:

    • the planning, drafting, calculation and management of civil engineering and urban infrastructure projects,
    • complex civil engineering work in leadership positions in the planning, calculation, execution and managment of civil engineering and urban infrastructure projects,
    • application of in-depth knowledge of engineering theory, complex workflows and processes in research and development.

    Forms of study

    Lectures and seminars take place according to a binding timetable. In addition, there is time for self-study. The amount of time planned for each individual module is fixed in the module descriptions.

    Practical courses in small groups complement theoretical work. The department has well-equipped laboratories for building materials science, road construction, foundation engineering and hydraulic engineering as well as a laboratory hall with equipment for building physics and construction technology.

    Projects (e.g. building construction) are compulsory according to the study plan and are worked on during the course. Modern PC pools are also available for this purpose.

    Field trips lasting several days to current large construction sites and interesting engineering structures are offered as an option and usually take place at the beginning of the 2nd semester. Smaller construction projects in the vicinity are also visited in day excursions.
