The Department of Civil Engineering and Environmental Sciences

Civil engineers change the world. They influence our lives more than many other professions. Because infrastructural facilities and buildings are an essential part of every civilization. How we live tomorrow is inspired by their imagination and knowledge. They analyze, model and realize. They create safe airports, network settlements, design water supply concepts and sewer systems, restore rivers or set up wind power plants on the open sea. Today, civil engineers and environmental scientists are creatively and innovatively mastering the rapidly growing demands of business, culture, environmental influences or new materials. The Department of Civil Engineering and Environmental Sciences offers a practical, practice-oriented course of study with a bachelor's and master's degree in Civil Engineering and Environmental Studies with real perspectives: versatile and high-quality. Those who study here today will earn the starting capital for a successful career as a civil engineer in the future. In conjunction with the Departments of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology as well as Aerospace Engineering, a bachelor's and master's degree courses in Mathematical Engineering are also offered.

The individual institutes are responsible for research that develops on the basis of society's current issues. Each institute has its own focal points, and conducts research either on its own or in cooperation within the international competition. The research is primarily basic research and is supplemented by commissions from the Bundeswehr and industry. The courses at our department impart the entire range of engineering methods and skills that enable our graduates to make responsible, qualified and flexible decisions and take action on a scientific basis. The range of services is completed by excellently equipped laboratories which form the basis for numerous projects.
