Bachelor of Civil Engineering
The Bachelor of Civil Engineering consists of 180 CPs (Credit-Points) which are scheduled for 6 semesters (3 years). The study program is divided into basic-studies and subject-specific-studies. Each course is offered in form of a module with corresponding study expense (CPs = “weighting”) and examinations (written/verbal). Some modules also include a course achievement without grading. The achievement and its extent is defined by the professor him-/herself. Most modules of Department 13 comprise 6CPs.
Each student is assigned their own personal mentor who will help developing the personal examination plan and monitor the learning progress. (After the first two semesters, at least 20 CPs should be completed.) The personal examination plan can be developed in consultation with the AG PEK as well.
You can find more information here.
During the basic studies, basic subjects like mathematics, chemistry and technical mechanic are taught. Additionally the students hear surveying, descriptive geometry, introduction in engineering informatics, and GPEK (simulation course). Especially GPEK grants an insight of working as a Civil Engineer.
To provide students with knowledge outside the Engineering program, they have to complete a certain number of interdisciplinary courses. More information of interdisciplinary courses can be found here.
Besides the basic subjects, the following modules are mandatory: Traffic I, Statics I, Construction Operation I, Geotechnics, Hydraulic Construction, Water Management and Hydraulic Systems, Introduction of Constructural Civil Engineering, Introduction of Water Supply and Disposal.
Only exception is the specialization Geodesy; this focus implies other mandatory courses.
Next to Geodesy, there a 4 further specifications, or profiles:
- Construction Management
- Constructural Civil Engineering
- Infrastructure (-planning)
- Water and Environment
It is also possible to create an own profile – but only after consultation the students office
Usually a profile is chosen after completing the basic-studies (after the 4th Semester). Here again Geodesy is an exception since this profile has to be chosen right at the beginning of the study program.
For further questions please contact AG PEK or the Students Council of Civil Engineering and Geodesy.
