Civil Engineering - Renovation 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 - Renovation.

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: 

  • 12 credits for 2 electives

  • 6 credits for Advanced Mathematics

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

  • 12 credits for the interdisciplinary project
     
  • 18 credits for the master's thesis with the final seminar in the third semester (full-time) or the fifth semester (part-time on-the-job)

 

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.
