The Institute of Building Construction and Timber Structures is represented with a variety of subjects in the bachelor and master studies of different courses of study at the Technical University of Braunschweig. In the bachelor' s degree course, the subjects "building construction", "masonry", "building physics" and of course "timber construction" are taught. In the master's degree course, more in-depth knowledge in the field of timber engineering is taught. The task and objective of our educational program is at the same time to convey theoretical basics as well as their application in practice. In addition to imparting knowledge, we have made it our task to prepare the aspiring engineers for their practical work, in which they have to work independently on various problems by doing a large number of homework and defend them in a colloquium.
