Welcome to the homepage of the Faculty of Civil Engineering. We offer information regarding your studies, teaching, research and services as well as about the organization of the faculty.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering contributes significantly to the solution of global challenges in the areas of teaching, research and development. We address the areas of construction, infrastructure, planning and the environment.  Sustainability, energy efficiency, resource conservation and water supply as well as disposal are central concepts that we emphasis not only in our research, but in our teaching as well. Other topics such as the life cycle analysis of structures, the development of adaptation strategies to climate change and demographic change, as well as general issues of mobility and transport are central research areas.

We strive to provide innovative practical solutions for issues that we as a society will face in the future, such as the scaricity of raw materials, climatic changes, increasing land usage, new forms of mobility of people and logistics of goods as well as demographic changes through our scientific and engineering research.

Our research results flow directly into teaching in accordance with the Humboldtian educational idea. Students benefit from the proximity of research and teaching. Furthermore, they are involved in research at the institutes at an early stage. We perform basic research, combine theory and practice as well as give the students first insights into working life.

In addition to the classic degree program "Civil Engineering", the faculty includes the interdisciplinary, and partly interdisciplinary courses "Environmental Engineering", "Transport Engineering and Mobility" as well as "Business Administration and Engineering: Civil Engineering". We also offer degree programs aimed towards future teachers at Vocational Schools offering subjects such as "Wood Technology B.Sc., Teaching at Vocational Colleges", "Structural Engineering B.Sc., Teaching at Vocational Colleges" and "Civil Engineering, Teaching at Vocational Colleges".

In cooperation with the International Office and the University of Maastricht, we offer a private degree program in the field of structural engineering "MME Construct" and hydraulic engineering "MME Water". These degree programs combine issues typical of engineering with modern management aproaches.

Many of the modules that we offer can be taken in English. Various degree programs such as the master's program "Sustainable Management – Water and Energy" are also offered in English. In addition, we offer two specializations entirely in English, "Advanced Computational Methods in Civil Engineering (short AdCom)" and "Railway Systems Engineering". Our degree programs qualify graduates for scientific and practical engineering careers.

On our homepage, we woudl like to give interested parties, students, research and industry partners an overview of the services that we offer.
