Construction, planning, building organisation, and finally the execution of construction itself constitute the main field of activity of civil engineers. They do not only take on the classic planning of buildings but also concern themselves with infrastructural measures such as the construction and maintenance of transport routes, drinking water supply systems, or energy-efficient modernisation of buildings.

Surveying can be roughly divided into three parts: engineering surveying (construction of buildings, roads, bridges and tunnels), land surveying (making maps), and real estate surveying (locating the exact boundaries of a property). Thus, on-site activities are part of the job.

Geodesists are also involved in the development of modern geo-informational systems or satellite navigation systems. Consequently, there is a strong reference to information technology.

Generally speaking, it is important to start early in the degree programme to gain practical work experience in relevant organisations. In this way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
