M. Sc. Civil Engineering (spec. Civil Engineering Structures)

Faculty of Civil Engineering  

Duration: 1.5 years  

Starts in: October 

A three-semester program and preparation of the final M.Sc. thesis under the guidance of the Faculty supervisor allows students to acquire comprehensive knowledge and qualifications in the area of civil engineering. Graduates of the Master's program can handle design problems with a high degree of complexity and investment projects of a unique nature. They are prepared to carry out research projects and can manage design projects or run construction companies. Graduates of the Civil Engineering program are offered engineering and administrative posts in industry, construction, research, government and consulting companies.
