Sandwich bachelor degree course in civil engineering

Important notice: All courses will be offered in GERMAN!!!

The study programme

The traces of civil engineers who calculate, design and build are everywhere.  Civil engineers build buildings, traffic routes, dikes and dams for everyone to see. But they also work in areas that are not visible to everyone, for instance our supply and disposal systems.  But their contribution is also needed in other fields, such as project development, financing and real estate.

Students can choose between two variants of the sandwich degree programme:

  • The integrated training sandwich degree programme combines professional training in a recognised occupation in the construction industry with university studies. Students in this model earn both a degree from Koblenz University of Applied Sciences (Bachelor of Engineering) and a professional degree from the corresponding chamber.
  • The practice-integrated sandwich degree programme is characterised by longer practical phases with a company, and the graduates obtain the academic degree "Bachelor of Engineering" at the end.

The programme includes a full degree course during the lecture periods. This is a full-time programme consisting of seven semesters and 210 CP. It can be started in the winter semester.

Study programme objective

The Department of Civil Engineering would like to expand its profile to offer a civil engineering education specifically geared towards the professions in this field as well as broad and general application possibilities. The programme aims to provide students with a sound and practically oriented foundation for their further professional qualification.

Job market qualification / career prospects

Due to the broad education in the Bachelor's programme, graduates can be employed in all areas of civil engineering. The job profile is aligned with the tasks of a construction manager on the one hand, while also covering the functions of specialists in engineering offices or authorities on the other hand.
