Bachelor's Degree Programme Civil Engineering and Construction Management

How do you construct buildings? How do you protect buildings from damp? What sort of construction materials are needed to build a street? Civil engineers have the answers. They design structures such as buildings, bridges, power stations, streets and railways. They construct, run and maintain such facilities and are responsible for ensuring that building materials are recycled. In the bachelor's programme Civil Engineering and Construction Management at TU Graz, you learn the fundamentals of civil engineering.
