Bachelor's programme in Industrial and Civil Engineering
In the Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial and Civil Engineering, you acquire the scientific and methodological foundations for the consecutive Master's degree programme. In the basic subjects of Civil Engineering, the Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial and Civil Engineering largely coincides with the Bachelor's degree programme in Civil Engineering; however, courses are offered as alternatives in individual subjects (Structural Engineering, Environment, Transport). You therefore already choose your subjects during your Bachelor's degree in Industrial and Civil Engineering and thereby also already determine focal points for your Master's degree. Some Civil Engineering modules are omitted altogether, while others are specially designed for Bachelor's students of Industrial Engineering.
The business administration and economics teaching content, supplemented by civil law and elective subjects, ensures a basic competence across the board. Bachelor's students have a - cross-sector - overview of the constitutive and business management mechanisms of companies. Due to their basic technical training in construction, they are able to implement this business management knowledge from the perspective and with regard to the special needs of the construction industry, but also of financial institutions and state organisations.
The Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial and Civil Engineering is composed of the following areas:
Basics of Mathematics
Civil Engineering Fundamentals
Civil Engineering Specialisation
Economic Sciences Basics
Economic Sciences Specialisation
Integrated Subject Area
The course of studies is planned individually. You will find an overview plan in the downloads, but this is only a recommendation for your orientation. The courses are usually held annually. The timetable, which is published on the website before the beginning of each semester, is used to plan your studies. Each subject is demonstrated in accordance with the specifications in the module handbook (BPO Annex 5) by passing an examination or an oral examination or another examination and/or course work during the course of study. All examinations are offered after each semester (in the lecture-free period). The dates for the written examinations are published on the website approximately one semester in advance.
In principle, the General Part of the Examination Regulations (APO) applies to all Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes at the TU Braunschweig. Supplementary regulations for the degree programme are laid down in the Special Part of the Examination Regulations for the Degree Programme in Industrial and Civil Engineering (BPO). We have summarised the information for you in the explanations for the Bachelor's degree programme. You should definitely read these carefully before starting your studies.

In the Key qualifications area, you will learn many skills that you can later use in practice: These include projects, different subjects, language skills, etc.
During their studies, students in Civil Engineering and Industrial an Civil Engineering have to attend the course "Projects in Civil Engineering". The course is planned for the 6th semester and takes place every summer semester.
In this seminar, professors in the field of Civil Engineering present projects from their specialist areas. The students are to gain insights into the diverse fields of work and understand the process of the projects. They get to know the projects in small groups through guest lectures, excursions and through their own contacts with other project participants, among other things. The experiences gained in the project are summarised in a report by each group and presented in short lectures at the end of the semester in a final event for all groups. Information can be found in the course "Projects in Civil Engineering" in Stud.IP.
Furthermore, you can choose from the following subjects: History of Civil Engineering, CAD, Descriptive Geometry, Documentation and Presentation, Pool of Interdisciplinary Qualifications, not taken subjects of Civil Engineering and Economics.
The courses of the interdisciplinary qualification pool are listed each semester as a special directory in Stud.IP. Languages can also be included.
In order to establish practical relevance right from the start, you need a pre-study internship lasting eight weeks for the Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial and Civil Engineering. Details are regulated in the internship guidelines. Proof of the completed internship must be submitted at the latest when registering for the Bachelor's thesis. However, it is strongly recommended that you complete all or part of the internship before you start your studies.
