Info zu Online-Kursen

Liebe Studierende,

aufgrund der aktuellen Gefährdungslage wurde durch das Wissenschaftsministerium entschieden, bis zum 20. April 2020 keine Präsenzlehrveranstaltungen an den Hochschulen des Landes Rheinland-Pfalz abzuhalten.

Wir arbeiten derzeit verstärkt daran, die Lehrinhalte für Sie in entsprechenden Tutorials aufzuarbeiten. Das braucht jedoch noch etwas Zeit! Um Ihnen trotzdem die Möglichkeit zum Selbststudium bieten zu können, werden Seminarunterlagen und sonstige Lehrmaterialien, wie gewohnt, digital in die OLAT-Kurse eingestellt. Dazu ist es erforderlich, dass Sie sich in den OLAT-Kursen Ihrer Module anmelden! Die OLAT-Kurse sind für den Zeitraum bis spätestens 27.03.2020, ohne Zugangsdaten (Passwort) buchbar.

Schreiben Sie sich also bitte möglichst kurzfristig in die OLAT-Kurse Ihrer Module ein. Sollte widererwartend ein OLAT-Kurs für Sie nicht buchbar sein, wenden Sie sich bitte kurzfristig per E-Mail an die modulverantwortliche Dozentin bzw. den modulverantwortlichen Dozenten.        

Weitere Informationen zum Semesterablauf der jeweiligen Module erhalten Sie dann per Kursmail von den modulverantwortlichen Dozentinnen und Dozenten.

Wir werden Sie über ihre studentischen Mailadressen sowie über die Mitteilungen im OLAT-Organisationskurs weiterhin über die aktuelle Situation in der Fachrichtung Bauingenieurwesen informieren.

Trotz der aktuell widrigen Umstände, wünsche ich Ihnen allen einen guten Start in ein erfolgreiches Semester!

Mit besten Grüßen
Michael Küchler
Leiter der Fachrichtung Bauingenieurwesen

Anleitung zur OLAT-Registrierung für Erstsemester

Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering

If you want to work in a widely diversified arena where you can be creatively and responsibly involved in the designing of the places we live in, the bachelor's degree program Civil Engineering is the right choice for you. After successfully concluding your studies, you will be able to assume responsibility for interesting tasks in the planning, designing, calculation and execution of structures.

Our goal is to equip you with the broadest possible knowledge base and deepen your knowledge in the areas related to construction. During your studies, there are three areas to choose from.

The program intends to not only ensure your technical and engineering qualifications, but also to strengthen your autonomy and creativity, and the awareness of responsible designing in regard to the environment.

The academic degree Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in construction is awarded after completion of the seven-semester degree program.

The bachelor's degree program of Civil Engineering is accredited by the agency ASIIN.

At a Glance

Degree: Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) 
Type of program: full-time
Standard period of study: 7 semesters
ECTS credits: 210 
Starting semester: summer or winter semester
Application deadline: January 15 and July 15
Language: German

What's in Store for You

The first part (semesters 1 & 2) is dedicated to the deepening and expanding of basic knowledge in mathematics and natural sciences.

The second part (semesters 3 & 4) provides you with expertise in civil engineering in a practice-oriented manner. It includes the basic contents of all major subject areas. You will be given a broad and solid foundation regardless of your future focus.

The third part (semesters 5 and 6) enable you to deepen your knowledge in accordance with your interest in one of the three main areas:

Construction Operations

Underground engineering and building construction, contracting/procurement, cost calculation and pricing, occupational safety, construction site management

Construction Engineering

Structural design, solid construction, steel construction, timber construction and composite construction

Infrastructure Water and Traffic

Hydraulic engineering, water management, urban water management, waste management,  traffic engineering, environmental protection

The fourth part (semester 7) includes a practical project or semester abroad and the bachelor's thesis.

The bachelor's exam is the conclusion to the bachelor's degree program Civil Engineering qualifying those who pass it to work in the profession. It is comprised of the coursework and exams completed during your studies and your bachelor's thesis.

The bachelor's thesis provides verification that you are able use the acquired knowledge to independently handle a specific pratical task using scientific methods, within a prescribed period of time.

After passing the exams, credits are assigned using the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), enabling you to switch to other universities in Germany and abroad.
