Info zu Online-Kursen

Liebe Studierende,

aufgrund der aktuellen Gefährdungslage wurde durch das Wissenschaftsministerium entschieden, bis auf Weiteres 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

Civil Engineering: Construction in Existing Contents M.Eng.

For particularly qualified graduates with a bachelor's degree or a diploma, Mainz University of Applied Sciences offers the possibility of a higher qualification in the accredited master's degree program Civil Engineering: Construction in Existing Contents.

The degree program builds on the bachelor's program and is based on the scientific foundations and methods of civil engineering. The master's degree program provides you with in-depth expertise in one of three possible majors:

  • Construction Operations
  • Construction Engineering
  • Infrastucture Water and Traffic

In this master's program you will acquire methodological and systemic competence, which is indispensable for the independent identification and solving of complex technical problems. In addition, you will develop an independent, team-oriented profile and will be able to work responsibly, providing high quality on all levels of the changing professional fields of civil engineering.

Construction is developing more and more strongly from new construction in the direction of renovation of existing buildings, and the sustainability of buildings will play an increasingly important role in the future. The acquisition of competences in these fields is therefore highly relevant.

Many of the modules offered have a specialist orientation with regard to the topic of renovating existing buildings. Within the framework of electives, special knowledge on this contemporary topic is offered in an interdisciplinary manner. 

With the master's degree programs Civil Engineering and Technical Facility Management, we bundle competences in regard to renovation of existing buildings.

The master's degree program has a standard period of study

  • three semesters (full-time) or 
  • five semesters (part-time on-the-job) 

 After successgfully completing the three-semester program, you are awarded the academic degree of Master of Engineering (M.Eng.).

What's in store for you

It is possible to complete the consecutive master's degree program as a full-time degree program (with three semesters as the standard study period) or as a part-time on-the-job degree program (with a five-semester standard study period). 

The offer of part-time on-the-job studies is aimed at students who, in addition to their studies, also work for a company. A cooperation agreement is concluded with the company. For more information, see "Apply".

TO BE ADDITIONALLY SUBMITTED FOR THE PART-TIME ON-THE-JOB DEGREE PROGRAM

If you are applying to the master's program in Civil Engineering part-time on-the-job, it is imperative to submit a cooperation agreement together with the application documents, which you will find under "Apply" in the downloads section.

  • For students (full-time and part-time on-the-job):
    There are currently no tuition fees for full-time and part-time on-the-job programs. The semester fee is to be paid. The fee includes the semester ticket for the greater Frankfurt/Wiesbaden/Mainz area and services of the Student Union. 
     
  • For the company (part-time on-the-job)
    The company fee for the part-time on-the-job program is 300 Euros per semester in accordance with the cooperation agreement.

The degree program is comprised of 90 credits, broken down as follows: 

  • 36 credits for compulsory courses (including the master's thesis with a colloquium)

  • 42 credits for 7 binding electives from one of the three majors offered
    • Construction Operations
    • Construction Engineering
    • Infrastucture Water and Traffic

  • 12 credits for 2 electives

 

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.
