As a civil engineer, you plan a construction project and accompany it from project planning and construction to acceptance of construction and invoicing of construction services. During your studies, you will learn how to comply with the relevant legal framework and technical regulations and learn about building physics, technical mechanics and special materials in practice. Business administration and management courses are also included, as you must always take into account the construction process, efficiency and profitability of a building project during planning and execution. The Civil Engineering degree programme at DIT is deliberately broad-based in order to provide you with comprehensive basic knowledge in classic construction areas - e.g. structural engineering, roads, bridges, tunnels and hydraulic engineering facilities - but also to teach you how to use the latest computer-aided methods and corresponding software.

Areas of focus:

  • Building management
  • Enviromental factors and infrastructure
  • Structural engineering

Career Prospects

As a civil engineer, you will accompany a construction project from planning, project planning and execution through to acceptance and invoicing of the construction work. This requires extensive knowledge of the relevant legal and safety regulations, building physics and statics, as well as business management knowledge, since the efficiency of the construction project must always be taken into account during planning and execution.

In addition to pure office work, the activity also includes on-site work on the construction site to monitor the implementation and completion of the construction project.

You will find areas of application as a civil engineer e.g. in construction offices of cities and communities, in building and civil engineering companies, in engineering and architecture offices or as a self-employed worker.

Related professions include the profession of architect, draughtsman or construction technician.
