Department of Architecture
The design of the built environment
Architects shape the living space of people. Their work concerns both those who confidently entrust an architect with a building task and those who come into contact with the work result - through the use or even an unconscious perception in public space. This visibility should always be aware of architects.
The enormous task requires an understanding of architecture as the interplay of art, technology and economics, but also the ability to coordinate the interests of the participants involved in a construction task for the best possible solution. Studying architecture prepares students for this broad professional field.
The study programs Architecture at the University of Konstanz attach great importance to the practical training of students to be generalists. They offer three courses of study, all of which are accredited and internationally recognized. The Bachelor's degree can be obtained in 6 or 8 semesters. There is also a 4-semester master's program.
Faculty of Civil Engineering
The Faculty of Civil Engineering offers a sound and practical education to construction, business and environmental engineers, who are sought in companies and planning offices, the construction and real estate industry, environmental technology and the public sector.
What sets us apart
The civil engineering has a long tradition at the HTWG Konstanz: From the founding of the "Technikum Konstanz" in 1906 to the present day, civil engineering is an integral part of the courses offered by the HTWG Konstanz. The Faculty of Civil Engineering offers a sound and practical education to construction, business and environmental engineers, who are sought in companies and planning offices, the construction and real estate industry, environmental technology and the public sector.
The training takes place in several bachelor and master programs with different orientations. In classical civil engineering, emphasis is placed on structural engineering, water and transport, construction and construction management, based on basic technical subjects. Additional economic content will be integrated into the Industrial Engineering degree program. Based on a broad and interdisciplinary basic education, the study program Environmental Technology and Resource Management deals with the topics of water resources management / environmental technology and resource management / renewable energies in two specializations. The training includes completing several internships in modern laboratories and the integrated practical semester in a company, a planning office or a public institution. Participation in extra-curricular events, such as language courses and semesters abroad, is made possible through worldwide cooperation.
All in all, students receive a broad range of training that meets the requirements of the current job market. The Faculty of Civil Engineering carries out research projects in applied research, including with industrial partners, and is well prepared for future requirements in teaching and research. On this basis, all degree programs at our faculty are certified and internationally recognized.
