Program Description

Master's degree in Civil Engineering

The master's degree Civil Engineering at Biberach University developed and supplemented in the bachelor predominantly technical content through management components, project management and through applied Bauinformatik, infrastructure programs calculation and finite element methods. The scientific study of special technical content is supported through close collaboration with the interdisciplinary institutes Biberach University.

Here, the focus according to the majors of the preceding bachelor's or graduate training (eg: Structural Engineering, Transportation, hydraulic), inclinations or professional experience are set differentiated.

In order to allow the standing in the professional engineer or civil engineer part time the Master Program, e-learning components and block courses are to enable part-time, e-learning components and block courses are provided.

Why Master?

Civil engineers take on tasks and responsibilities in all areas of our everyday technological environment. They plan, design, build and maintain buildings and facilities of all kinds; develop materials and components, construction and method of operation, calculation methods and software; organize, calculate and monitor processes and procedures.

The training requirements of modern civil engineering are just as varied and increasingly complex; the place of the classical architect is now the "high-tech engineer" resigned.

With so many practical problems in civil engineering with additional technical and managerial skills and key management techniques are required. This is provided at Biberach University master's degree in "Civil Engineering". The course content is practical and oriented to the versatile, specific requirements in one of the largest professional fields worldwide.

Structure / process of the Master Program

The master's program is modular and consists of attendance phases (block courses, etc.) and controlled domestic contribution (e-learning). Lectures and seminars are held on Saturdays in part. Thus, the master's degree is also part-time possible.
