Construction is not only an existential need, but also one of the most fascinating endeavours that humans can carry out.
Civil engineers plan, build, operate and maintain structures and systems of all kinds. While structural engineering focuses on modern and sustainable buildings made of steel, wood, glass and concrete, earth sciences and geotechnical engineering encompass everything from secure foundations to tunnel construction. The entire infrastructure, from roads and railways to airfields and sewer systems to the water supply of entire cities, also falls within the responsibility of civil engineering. Sustainable and resource-efficient construction as well as the digitisation of all facets of construction play an important role in research, guiding us in collaborations with our industrial partners every day. Teaching provides students with a theoretical and practical foundation, giving them the tools to realise construction projects of all kinds. Modern teaching methods, a high proportion of female students and a healthy supervisory relationship are particularly important to us. More than almost any other profession, there is a great demand for all-rounders in civil engineering to shape our future
