  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a broad range of training in the areas of Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Resource Management and Computational Engineering. Tutorials and small group practicals support access to the course content and enable intensive supervision of the students by professors and academic staff. The teaching staff's excellent links to professional practice mean that the course focuses on application. The labs and workshops illustrate the acquired theoretical skills as part of various practicals.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The faculty has a broad network of research institutions and industry partners around the world. There are structured programmes for the promotion of international mobility of students and young researchers as part of joint research projects. Students are given intensive support in the planning of periods abroad and practicals (e.g. Erasmus). The international English-language degree course "Computational Engineering" with a sister course at the Vietnamese-German-University (VGU) is in great demand worldwide.
