Curriculum

korrelation_lh625Compulsory courses

In the first semester all students have to complete five basic courses in mathematics, mechanics, structural engineering and numerical methods. During the second and third semester students have to pass three compulsory courses.

Compulsory optional subjects

From our opinion, you can only be good at things you really like. We thus give our students the chance to specialise in the field they are most interested in. In the second and third semester they have the possibility to choose subjects from of a diversity of elective courses. Furthermore, we recommend students to write two case studies in a subject they would like to further look into.

Elective courses can be chosen from the fields of construction, material modelling, numerical methods, fluid and environmental engineering or dynamics. Students decide themselves how many optional courses they take. However, they must ensure that, after three semesters, they have completed enough courses to have obtained a minimum of 90 credit points.

Every course schedule includes lectures, exercises and sometimes assignments. Upon agreement with the respective lecturer, students who have sufficient German language skills may also attend lectures from the curriculum of the Master course Civil Engineering.
