Special Features: The students can choose between two majors: a Civil Engineering focus or a Geodesy focus.


The Bachelor of Science Civil Engineering and Geodesy is divided into its two majors, Civil Engineering and Geodesy. The mathematical and mechanic fundamentals of the first semester remain more or less identical; however, different subject-specific study contents of the respective major are integrated into the degree course scheme from the very beginning. The students do not have to choose their major when applying. Instead, the decision is made during the course of study when registering for the first exam given within the selected major.

In the Civil Engineering major, the students acquire the skills for planning, evaluating, drafting, measuring, designing, building, operating, and maintaining structural works under technical, economic, and ecological aspects. The students deal with geodetic tasks and with infrastructurally embedding any type of civil engineering activity. They work on projects in the fields of building construction and of transport, civil, and hydraulic engineering.

The Geodesy major dates back to classic surveying. This scientific and technical discipline is primarily concerned with surveying Earth, capturing its surface, and depicting it on maps. Further developments of the subject today are mainly characterised by the use of computers and satellites as well as state-of-the-art technology.

The programme is completed with a Bachelor’s Thesis. In the examination certificate, the name of the selected major will only appear on the Diploma Supplement.
