Structural engineers deal with planning, design, manufacture and operations of buildings in the fields of construction engineering, civil engineering, transport engineering and hydraulic engineering. The classical constructive subjects such as statics, concrete engineering and structural steelwork engineering will be the core topics taught. By using these knowledge tools, the major problems of buildings can be solved. The basics of building founding and the ground engineering are subject of the geotechnics. Students gain knowledge not only of the internationally recognized laws of construction, but also of the national policies and norms. The field of construction management imparts in-depth skills for handling large building projects, including the entire area of quality management and economic aspects.
The entire field of civil engineering is becoming increasingly international. The contribution of German companies to the international building projects is one economic factor. Graduates will have various career opportunities for employment, both nationally and internationally. The current booming construction engineering, especially in the foreign metropolis, but also in the thriving environmental technology, offers a long-term stable employment market worldwide.
