Bachelor's program

The expressions construction or building material are often used synonymously for materials which are used to build structural parts or erect entire buildings. The class “Construction materials and building chemistry” is taught in two moduls in first year during the bachelor studies. The classes deal in lectures and practical courses with chemical and physical properties as well as with the production of construction materials. Furthermore a glimpse is provided on the interaction of construction materials and environment. Here, the classes focus on the ecological impact upon the environment originating from the production and the application of the construction materials. At the same time how construction materials deteriorate due to the surrounding environment.

These basic classes are supplemented by the class „Geology“ which provides a deeper insight into the development of the earth as such, the genesis of rocks and minerals used in building industry and the methods applied for their identification.
