Civil Engineering Department

For 25 years, the Civil Engineering Department has been training young people to become civil engineers. In addition to the quality of the education with manageable group sizes, our students always emphasize the personal atmosphere and closeness to the professors. The department has seven laboratories that are used for research and study. In addition to the regular full-time degree programs, you can also choose between three dual degree programs.
