CIVIL ENGINEER:IN - A PROFESSION WITH A FUTURE Design, planning, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings are among the classic tasks of a civil engineer. Thus, design civil engineers protect the environment and contribute to the responsible use of resources through renovation instead of new construction, water protection or low-energy houses. WHAT CAN I EXPECT? - Industrial and building construction Construction, planning of buildings with renewable energies and alternative construction methods Practice-related teaching Design, planning, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings are among the classic disciplines of Civil Engineering. In the meantime, the topics of sustainability and renovation have also come to the fore. Graduates are proficient in the planning of structures for industrial and building construction using the established materials of concrete, steel and wood and are also able to integrate innovative building materials and construction methods into the planning process. In-depth knowledge in the field of facility maintenance and energy-efficient construction qualify to deal with the increasing requirements for the sustainability of buildings. The academic degree Bachelor of Science enables a first qualified career entry. Further qualification with a Master’s degree is optional. The interdisciplinary training at HRW offers the opportunity to successfully gain a foothold in new professional areas in the field of classic Civil Engineering. COURSE CONTENTS - Mathematics, Technical Mechanics, Building Physics, Construction Chemistry - Building Materials Science, Building Construction, Building Informatics - Construction Company, Construction Law, Construction Industry, Calculation, Construction Management - Structural Analysis, Structural Planning, Solid Construction, Steel Construction, Timber Construction, Geotechnics - Road Planning, Fundamentals of Water Management, Recycling - Maintenance, Renovation Concepts, Energy-Efficient Construction, Construction in Existing Buildings From the fourth semester onwards, students have the opportunity to choose specialisations in elective modules. The course is application-oriented with integrated project phases.
