Course of Study
This degree programme consists of six semesters and starts in the winter semester. The programme includes a twelve-week basic professional internship. Regulations for the pre-study internship for students of the department of Environmental Planning and Technology are available at the Registrar's Office. Please consult the course representative regarding the nature of the internship in advance, as the course representative will recognise or reject an internship as a fulfillment of the admission requirement. Subject-related vocational training courses may be accepted.
The Bachelor's programme is based on a modular concept. Core modules are taught in the first three semesters, whereas subject-specific modules are taught thereafter. These modules focus on development and construction, as well as operations and technology management. Students must also take elective modules, which can be composed of different lectures, in order to gain a more profound understanding of a specific topic or to enrol in a non-related subject, such as language or communication studies.
Exchange semesters are encouraged. Students who decide to study at a university abroad, generally do so during the fifth semester. The prerequisite for this is an equivalent curriculum at the partner university.
The sixth semester is reserved for a practical project and the Bachelor thesis. The period of practical takes twelve weeks. The aim of the final dissertation is to demonstrate that the student is capable of independently working through a subject-related topic by applying scientific methods within a nine-week period.
