Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)

Dual Civil Engineering

The dual studies program in Civil Engineering is designed to appeal to students who want to gain practical experience at a construction company, engineering firm or municipal administration while they complete their degrees. The advantages of the dual studies program include a direct link to practical skills, very good professional prospects and secure financial support.

This practical degree program prepares students for a variety of positions in the construction industry. Expertise from different areas such as mathematics, natural sciences and economics, thorough IT expertise and management skills serve as the foundation for different fields of study like building operations, structural engineering, traffic engineering and water management.
Due to a growing shortage of trained professionals in civil engineering, and because of the trend towards mixed teams, highly-qualified women and men enjoy attractive and family-friendly career prospects. Modern and innovative companies are offering more and more flexible work time models.


Graduates will be qualified for careers in the following areas:

  • Design, calculation, planning
  • Coordination, monitoring
  • Operations and renovation
  • Calculation, bid processing, work preparation and billing
  • Facility management
