Faculty 2: Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and environmental engineers are in charge of designing both the build and natural environments. Civil and Environmental Engineers use resources and produce durable goods, which have to be operated and maintained over long periods of time, as well as renewed at the end of their life cycle.

Civil Engineering involves important responsibilities and aspects in the technical implementation and the use of the designed and constructed facilities such as human health, environmental impacts, aesthetics, economics of construction and life cycle assessments. Last but not least, Civil and Environmental engineering is characterized by its broad and diverse fields, as well as by its interdisciplinary collaboration with other engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists, as well as natural scientists, legal experts, and economists.

Our faculty consists of 14 institutes with 21 departments and over 400 employees. We offer consecutives Bachelor’s and Master's degrees, Master's programs in English, and three extra-occupational Master's programs. Graduates are also able to participate in an international (D/NZ) Research Training Group, a Graduate School or an international PhD program, depending on the research focus. Regarding the research area, the Faculty is engaged in several Sonderforschungsbereichen, for two of them (SFB 1244 Adaptive Hüllen und Strukturen für die gebaute Umwelt von morgen and SFB 1313 Grenzflächengetriebene Mehrfeldprozesse in porösen Medien - Strömung, Transport und Deformation) the speaker are professors of the Faculty.
