More information about the Civil Engineering, Architecture & Construction discipline

Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hidro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismical areas and others. The prerequisites for studying civil engineering include mathematics, physics, project management and design among others. The students can specialize in a variety of sub-topics like: Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Earthquake Engineering Costal Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Materials Engineering or Urban Engineering.

Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.

For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.

Suggested Study Programmes

  • Master in Engineering (MEng)

    The MEng is an integrated masters degree in engineering that offers you an opportunity to fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. The MEng course aims to meet professional development needs as specified by the Engineering Council and relevant engineering institutions in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).

  • Master in Engineering

    This MSc in Engineering course builds on previous study of Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering or our MEng, and offers you an opportunity to research an engineering topic in depth.

  • Master in Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction

    This program applies recognised disaster management practices, providing graduates with the unique ability to work on approaches to building disaster resilience in context specific situations.

  • Master in Lighting Design

    The distance learning programme Master Architectural Lighting and Design Management will be offered by the University Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design. The aim of the long distance course is to comprehensively train lighting designers. The highly regarded qualifications and skills gained through this degree, offer graduates the opportunity to work in many relating fields. The central capability of a lighting designer, regardless of dealing with daylight or artificial light, is to design the interactions between architecture and light.

  • Master in Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Buildings

    The main objective of the MSc Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Buildings programme is to provide students with high standards of knowledge in design, constructionand maintenance of energy efficient buildings. The graduates will develop practical skills and acquire the fundamental knowledge for a further professional career in the field of civil engineering and energy efficiency.
