Civil Engineering (Master's degree)

Semester 3/4 Semester
Winter semester/summer semester


The requirements for civil engineers have changed significantly in recent years. New challenges have been added to the traditional tasks, such as the sustainability and energy efficiency of infrastructures. Modern building materials, new calculation possibilities due to the further development of computer technology and the demands on modern construction management also require in-depth knowledge. This knowledge is imparted in the Master's programme. The civil engineering study programme leading to the degree of Master of Engineering (M. Eng.) offers interested students with an above-average bachelor's or diploma degree the opportunity to deepen and extend their previous qualifications. Due to the size of the faculty of civil engineering, the entire range of civil engineering, from structural engineering, water management, environmental technology, geotechnics, transport and traffic engineering to construction operations and construction management can be offered. According to their inclinations and planned future activities, students can choose the contents of their studies largely freely. More detailed information on the course of studies can be found on the  website of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.


The Master's degree is highly regarded internationally and offers graduates better opportunities on the job market, a higher starting salary and access to management positions. In addition, the degree entitles the holder to a doctorate and has been approved for the Higher Service.

After achieving a master's degree, it is possible to do a doctorate. The central contact point is the graduate school.


Qualifications and competences for these fields of activity are provided by the modules of the Master's programme in Civil Engineering. These study units can include courses, project work and laboratory phases. In comparison to the Bachelor's programme, the Master's programme is more scientifically oriented and qualifies students for a doctorate. The chosen specialisation is shown in the certificate. You can find a detailed presentation of the study contents in the module manual (German).


The minimum requirement for admission is a qualified bachelor's degree, and it is also possible to enter with a degree in engineering from a university of applied sciences or a university. A detailed description of the admission requirements can be found in the Special Provisions of the Examination Regulations (German).
