Qualification profile

Industrial an Civil Engineers are professionals who have both the basic knowledge of Civil Engineering and Business Administration. Industrial an Civil Eengineers are expected to understand both the technical language of engineering and that of business administration. This degree programme predestines them to coordinate the interaction of the numerous experts necessary for the accomplishment of complex construction tasks and to assume a leadership role here. In addition to the coordination of experts, the control of costs occupies a prominent position among the areas of responsibility of Industrial and Civil Engineers. Furthermore, the students are supported in their personal development, and through the area of key qualifications they are given the opportunity to think outside the box by attending modules that are not related to the subject - this includes not only interdisciplinary qualifications, but also participation in society.

Bachelor's graduates are able to perform selected basic engineering activities, especially in the area of coordination and within a multidisciplinary network, largely independently and partly on their own responsibility. This includes, for example:

  • Designing buildings with a simple degree of difficulty under supervision, including the preparation of planning documents, carrying out simple static calculations and drawing up a cost calculation.
  • Assisting in the acquisition of construction contracts and the preparation of business calculations, assisting in the preparation of work;
  • Coordinating and supervising construction work under supervision;
  • Drawing up manageable profitability studies, designing and carrying out business management evaluations;
  • Participation in simple planning, construction, maintenance and upkeep tasks;
  • Development of simple business and procurement models;
  • Analysis of simple (construction) process and organisational structures;
  • Evaluation of simple project-based liquidity planning on corporate financing.

Master's graduates are able to carry out comprehensive activities independently and on their own responsibility after familiarisation. These include, for example:

  • Designing buildings with a medium degree of difficulty, including the preparation of planning documents, carrying out static calculations and drawing up a cost calculation;
  • Acquisition of building contracts and independent preparation of business calculations, largely independent work in work preparation;
  • Largely independent coordination and monitoring of construction work;
  • Managing, supervising and carrying out complicated and comprehensive development and research projects;
  • Setting up difficult advantageousness studies, designing and carrying out complex economic evaluations; ability to moderate and lead interdisciplinary teams;
  • Economic and technical management of planning, construction, preservation and maintenance tasks;
  • Development of complex business and procurement models as well as financing variants for the realisation of construction measures;
  • Setting up, controlling and steering complex construction measures from both the investor and the executing side.

The research and innovation-oriented graduates of the Master's degree programme are also able to go beyond existing boundaries of technical and business knowledge, to initiate innovations and to fill leadership positions in business and administration. They are trained to become personalities who are prepared to take on responsibility in society.

The highly qualified industrial engineers play an important role in developing and securing the competitiveness of the European economy. The qualification required for this is only achieved with the completion of the Master's degree.

Graduates of the Master's programme are also qualified for doctorate.
