To be at the forefront of challenges in the construction industry, we train students to be engineers with a focus on the development of construction products and construction processes including:
Study, work, family & leisure - you could enjoy the benefits of flexible and individual studies in the heart of Europe. Thanks to the unique concept of the BPP degree programme, you don't have to sacrifice anything:
What does that mean for you?
How do we support you?
Training for the job - English is the main language in the international business world. Do you want to become an engineer and pursue a career in the field of construction or product development and at the same time perfect your English skills? Then the degree programme "Building Products and Processes" is the perfect study programme for you!
Degree: Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
Duration: 7 Semester (3.5 years)
Start: October (winter semester)
Location: European Campus Rottal-Inn, Pfarrkirchen
Lab: Simbacher Str. 8 in 94424 Arnstorf
Taught in: English
Application period: 15 April - 15 July
Prerequisites: Basic technological knowledge
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.
