Course description

Structural engineers focus on the planning, design, manufacture, and operation of buildings and other structures within civil, structural, traffic, and hydraulic engineering projects. The Structural Engineering B.Sc. program offers a comprehensive education in engineering, mathematics, and natural sciences. The core curriculum includes classic construction disciplines such as statics, concrete construction, and steel construction, enabling students to tackle fundamental construction-related challenges. The geo-engineering component covers substructure and soil mechanics, providing a solid foundation in these critical areas. Students will also gain knowledge of international construction regulations, as well as national regulatory frameworks and statutory norms. The construction management segment of the course addresses the execution of major building projects, focusing on quality assurance and financial aspects like cost control. Environmental considerations and natural sciences are integrated into the urban water management and hydraulic engineering modules. Hydraulics, a specialty of the University of Duisburg-Essen, features prominently in both Bachelor's and Master's level lectures. Our interdisciplinary, ecologically-oriented approach is rooted in Germany's industrial Ruhr region, where the university is located. However, we maintain an international perspective, preparing students to address environmental issues in their own countries.
