After successfully completing your bachelor's degree, you are aiming for a challenging job or a management position in a dynamically growing industry of the future. The qualified master's degree program in Construction and Environment (Infrastructure) at the Bremen University of Applied Sciences increases your chances of quickly entering responsible management positions with higher
earning potential. Especially for qualified, autonomous activities in the field of research and development, our master's degree can be an advantageous ticket to a professional career with diverse development prospects. The three-semester master's degree program in Construction and Environment (Infrastructure) M. Sc. prepares you in an interdisciplinary and practical manner
for the working world in expanding and innovative fields of activity.
In a total of three semesters of project-oriented study, the Master's program in Civil Engineering and the Environment will provide you with comprehensive, detailed and specialized technical knowledge, enabling you to work independently on construction or environmental engineering issues in infrastructure projects of complex magnitude in a responsible, subject-specific and interdisciplinary manner.In the program, you can choose two subject specializations in the form of subject differentiation.
If you choose the subject differentiation Civil Engineering, your focus will be in particular on structural planning for complex infrastructure projects, weighing up complex relationships between the material constructions and the building behavior in context and designing object plans for infrastructure measures.
If you choose the subject differentiation environmental engineering, you will learn in particular process-related environmental engineering planning for complex infrastructural projects and to develop concepts for the optimization of environmental engineering plants and processes.
The work areas of graduates of the civil engineering program include activities in engineering offices for object and specialized planning, construction management and supervision, organizational tasks, customer contacts, cooperation with architects, object planners and other engineers and offer you a varied work environment with good career opportunities.
As a graduate, you will have access to a wide range of activities in the municipal and public sectors as well as in the private sector and as a self-employed person. Local, regional, national and international authorities and institutions and construction companies are among the potential employers, as are water, sewage and soil associations.
Their skills are also in demand in transport associations, building and planning authorities and engineering and planning offices. They are also qualified to take on demanding tasks in supply and disposal companies, energy supply companies, transport companies and organizations active in development aid.
The completed master's degree opens up the possibility of a doctorate and is accredited as a qualification for a career in the higher service of public administration.
The practical relevance of the study program results from the educational objective and from the traditionally practice-oriented teaching and research of the Bremen University of Applied Sciences.
Due to the close relationship and cooperative integration of the Department of Construction and Environment with the regional construction and environmental industry as well as other institutions, such as the Materials Testing Institute, the water and shipping offices, there is a permanent exchange between teaching in the degree programs, scientific research and construction practice. Master's theses in companies or in the context of practical scientific research are the rule in the degree programs of the Department of Construction and Environment.
For your practical study projects, the IT infrastructure and the research-strong laboratories of the faculty offer you optimal working conditions and provide an insight into current research projects. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering provides you with the Detlef Hegemann Digital Platform, a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which you can access via the desktop computers in the PC pool rooms or via your notebook. Virtually from anywhere you can view data or use complex software that would not run on your own hardware.
All learning rooms are equipped with streaming-capable media, so that presence and home learning can be linked. With the filling of the professorships for digital planning and construction, the establishment and integration of a BIM/GIS laboratory in teaching and research is beginning. In the future, digital manufacturing processes will be developed in a prototype workshop using a robot system, which will implement technical and content interfaces via Building Information Modeling (BIM).
With the funding of 240,000 euros until 2024, the Detlef Hegemann Foundation supports the expansion of the forward-looking digitization of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Environment in the coming years.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering maintains relations with numerous universities abroad.
These lead to close links between teaching and science in international exchange.
The central International Office and the International Office in the faculty will be happy to advise you on how to organise and finance your stay abroad.
Questions about the degree programme can be answered by the contact persons on the degree programme pages. If you have any further questions about your decision to study at HSB, our advisory and service institutions will be happy to help.
