The construction industry is evolving in many ways right now, and so are the courses on offer. With Building Products and Processes, the Deggendorf Institute of Technology primarily addresses the megatrends digitalisation, climate change, globalisation and internationality. You learn how to develop resource-saving, recyclable building products that are reusable at best case. And you are in a position to digitally process these with the corresponding programmes and models in medium and large building construction projects. The lectures will enable you to do this on a national and international basis. A valuable component of your studies at DIT are the numerous local companies - there you can find laboratory internships as well as positions for your practical semester and your thesis. The hybrid study structure of engineering and management as well as the bilingual lecture concept provide you with a unique possibility in the German study landscape.

Study at the European Campus Rottal-Inn in Pfarrkirchen.

career prospects

As a graduate engineer, you are able to develop, market and manage sustainable building products all over the world. You will use your knowledge of the complex building systems of building structures (concrete, masonry, steel and timber construction, hybrid construction methods). The same applies to your knowledge of the building structure (façade to roof) and interior finishing (floor, ceiling, wall). You have to be fit in these areas, because the demands on the products are increasing: architecturally and constructionally sophisticated, resource-saving, recyclable, healthy. And these are only some of the attributes that a building product should fulfil in the future. You also know the finishing trades (building automation, heating, ventilation, sanitation) including their numerous interfaces.

In the development and processing of building products, engineers in the Building Products and Processes degree programme rely on the continuous use of digital building blocks (BIM) for the efficient networking of all those involved in the planning, production and construction of buildings. After graduation, you will have a high level of language competence. The confident handling of both German- and English-language literature, building regulations, EN standards, etc. is daily business for engineers in the Building Products and Processes degree programme. You have to implement and coordinate building specifications and technical documents accordingly during construction. The modular structure of the lectures and the teaching of both technical and language skills offer graduates excellent career opportunities in all branches of the national and international construction industry. If you want, you can travel the world through your profession.
