Civil Engineering

Whether it be residential buildings, bridges, waterways, or wind farms: civil engineers actively shape our world through their work.

Civil engineers work on a scientific basis in order to plan, design, and engineer buildings and construction projects and to organize their construction. It goes without saying that aspects such as cost-effectiveness, quality, and environmental compatibility also play a decisive role. Innovative and competent minds that can develop and implement new ideas are highly sought after in this field.
