Department 02 - Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering degree course offers practice-oriented studies leading to a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) or Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree.

First, all students receive a comprehensive grounding in the fundamentals of engineering (1st and 2nd semesters).
As their studies progress, students receive more detailed and in-depth instruction reflecting the diverse set of challenges facing today’s civil engineers. Using a modular lecture structure, this academic programme covers modern construction techniques alongside classic civil engineering subjects. Once students have completed the basic and advanced core courses (starting in the sixth semester), they may choose from two possible fields of specialisation:

Civil Engineering
Structural Steel Engineering

After completing the bachelor’s degree, students may continue their education with a three-semester master’s degree course in our department. The fields of study on offer are:

• Structural Engineering (MUAS)
• Civil Engineering (Augsburg University of Applied Sciences)
• Structural Steel Engineering and Design Technology (MUAS)

Our Department of Civil Engineering is one of the largest at a university of applied sciences in Germany, with 26 professors and over 700 students. The department’s professors draw on their comprehensive knowledge and specialist expertise to guarantee a diverse range of challenging classes. The department also has a well-equipped library and several laboratories with modern facilities for use in teaching and learning:

- Building Informatics Laboratory, with around 75 PC workstations
- Structural Steel Engineering and Light Metal Engineering Laboratory
- Geotechnical Engineering and Soil Mechanics Laboratory
- Building Materials Laboratory
- Building Physics Laboratory
- Construction Chemistry Laboratory
