The new master’s degree programme in Civil Engineering offers two specializations in the fields of “Structural Engineering” and “Water, Energy, Environment” for a stronger profile in important core competences of civil engineering. On the basis of a broadly diversified bachelor’s degree, the master’s programme is designed to expand the technical competences for today’s and tomorrow’s requirements in the two specializations.

Our master’s graduates thus acquire competences associated with the professional title of civil engineer in practice. Locally and internationally, productively and academically.
