Civil engineers perform a wide variety of tasks. You will become a highly sought-after professional by specialising in civil engineering. You will learn to produce specific solutions and tackle complex problems, taking advantage of close cooperation with research and industry professionals.
As a Master of Science in Engineering graduate with the Civil Engineering profile, you identify complex causal relationships and resolve the challenges they present independently. You also make a major contribution to innovative solutions in terms of analysis, design, technical solutions and planning. You have a firm grasp of business principles and possess extensive project management skills.
Bachelor’s degree in a technical discipline. Candidates are individually assessed by the university of applied sciences chosen. The assessment of the entry qualifications is part of the admissions procedure.
The focus of the master’s degree programme is on specialising in greater depth; two-thirds of the programme is devoted to this and is completed at a research unit of a university of applied sciences. As part of this in-depth specialisation you will write two project theses and the master’s thesis.
One-third of your degree programme focuses on theory, which is taught in modules. These theory modules are subdivided into three areas:
- Technical Scientific Modules | TSM
- Fundamental Theoretical Principles | FTP
- Context Modules | CM
Your degree programme is planned with support from your advisor. This study advisor will also guide you on the choice of theory modules and specialisation. You can find the overview of modules for full-time and part-time study here.
