The construction industry is one of the oldest industries in the world and is still one of the largest and most sustainable - after all, construction is always ongoing. Today's challenges for all professionals in this field are sustainability and environmental protection, new materials and new technologies that need to be used in a targeted and efficient manner. Civil engineers must be able to approach new projects scientifically and analytically and work in teams, whether they are building a detached house, a bridge or an industrial plant. They work together with architects, developers and authorities and, in addition to mathematical and technical understanding, must therefore also have leadership and organizational skills as well as solution-oriented thinking - soft skills that are learned on the Civil Engineering myStudy course.

In the myStudy Civil Engineering program, you will receive a broad basic education in engineering, starting with basic knowledge in architecture, through the topics of structural design, economic efficiency, energy and resource-conscious construction and much more, also taking into account the latest developments, keyword construction industry 4.0. A large number of compulsory elective modules offer you the opportunity to focus on areas that are of particular interest to you.
