Civil and Environmental Engineering, M.Eng.

Faculty of Civil and Construction Engineering

Become an Engineer

Civil engineers have been shaping the human environment for centuries and civil and environmental engineers have been making an important contribution to protecting it for decades.

Civil engineers plan and construct residential and commercial buildings, roads, bridges, railways and tunnels. Environmental engineers, for example, develop plants for wastewater treatment and discharge, for ecological water management, recycling and recovery, create efficient and ecological energy concepts and implement corresponding plants in buildings and structures and are involved in environmental impact assessments.

In practice, both engineering disciplines work hand in hand. In construction, technical progress, especially with regard to climate and environmental protection, has considerably expanded the field of work, so that environmental protection is always an important aspect in planning.

The aim of the Master's programme is to enable students to independently, creatively and responsibly apply in-depth scientific and interdisciplinary knowledge, skills and methods in the field of civil and environmental engineering. As a graduate, you should be able to carry out demanding engineering activities in the planning, construction and execution of civil and environmental engineering projects on your own responsibility.

Possible fields of activity are engineering and planning offices, state and municipal administrations, industrial and commercial enterprises (especially from the construction, environmental, energy, water and housing industries) as well as universities and research institutions.
