The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen offers a modern and practice-oriented course of studies founded on fundamental principles. The Master's degree course in Civil Engineering reflects recent changes in the profession. The content of the course of studies has been expanded to include courses in the economic and environmental aspects of engineering, offered alongside traditional subjects. Other key areas of competence which are supportive complement this modern concept.

In the course of the Master's studies there are four different subject areas to be chosen. Graduates are well prepared for excellent positions in the international labour market wherever civil engineering knowledge is necessary within interdisciplinary co-operation; students can also continue their studies towards a Ph.D.


In this course of studies the spectrum of the civil engineering profession is divided into four different subject areas.

  • Construction Site Operations and Economics

The programme provides the knowledge in operations and economics needed by the modern construction managers to deal effectively with the planning, construction and operation of large-scale projects.

  • Infrastructure and the Environment

The following environmental and land use planning issues receive particular scientific scrutiny:

  1. Waste- and Water Management, Sustainability and the Environment
  2. Transportation Management, Traffic and Urban Planning
  • Construction Engineering

Classic engineering subjects are set forth in two broad categories:

  1. Design and execution of all types of construction projects
  2. Simulation methods, research and development
  • Material Science

Topics in the following areas are studied in depth:

  1. Chemical and physical principles related to civil engineering
  2. Production, characteristics and applications of construction materials as well as durability issues and restoration
