Civil Engineering, B. Eng.

  • Objectives and teaching contents

    The study objective is the knowledge transfer from basic to specialized expertise in the classical field of civil engineering. This allows graduated students to work at companies, local authorities, or engineering offices. Teaching contents include recommendations of the federal state’s (Schleswig-Holstein) chamber of engineers, of the national accreditation group (AS-Bau), and of the national civil engineering group.

    The bachelor study program civil engineering has a duration of 7 semesters with 210 credit points (ECTS). 

    Next to general basic courses (e.g. engineering mathematics), combined and interdisciplinary courses together with architecture students (e.g. building construction) are part of the obligatory study program. In the main study phase basic and technical engineering courses are scheduled. In the 5th and 6th semesters a specialization is obligatory; three specializations will be provided: (a) structural engineering, (b) water, infrastructure and environment or (c) construction management.  Within these courses specialized knowledge will be given to prepare students for applied working fields. The 7th semester will be used to complete the professional internship (12 weeks) and to write the bachelor thesis (6 weeks).



  • Study degree

    With a successful completion of the bachelor study program civil engineering students receive the first academic degree of a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.).

    This degree qualifies to apply for admission for graduate master programs with specific additional requirements which may differ from institution to institution.

    With specific additional professional practice requirements, the degree also qualifies for registration in the official Germany listing of professional civil engineers.

  • Job description

    Civil engineers work in lots of positions in national and international companies, local authorities and engineering offices....

    Small offices, mid-sized or large companies employ civil engineers for planning and designing engineering structures, to run construction sites, or to proceed environmental projects. Civil engineers work next to the society and therefore they need technical, mathematical, and nature science knowledge. Civil engineering is one of the most complex and broadest engineering science with a wide future context.
