Civil Engineering and Geodesy

Bachelor of Science

Bauingenieurwesen und Geodäsie, B.Sc.


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.

Good knowledge of mathematics and the natural sciences is a prerequisite for a successful course of study. Spatial perception, analytical approaches to problems and soft skills such as an aptitude for planning, organisation, and communication, are also important.

Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.

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 surveyin g (locatting the exact boundaries of a property). Thus, on-site activities is 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.
