Program description

Content

Civil engineering deals with the erection of buildings of all kind, in particular of structures like bridges and tunnels, structures in hydraulic engineering, water supply, waste and waste water disposal, harbour construction, streets, hall construction, as well as industrial and housing construction, including refurbishment. The master program civil engineering gives graduates the qualification to process difficult projects in the construction practice, including the necessary competences in business and management. Buildings arise by the cooperation of owners, planning offices, contractors, environment, politicians and society. Civil engineering is located in the field between technical and economic constraint, political will and legal conditions. The master program prepares for that. The master program also opens the way to doctoral studies and successful research activities, assuming a sufficient diploma.

The master program civil engineering is associated with the bachelor program civil engineering and environmental engineering of the University of Technology Hamburg-Harburg in the sense of a consecutive course of studies. Possible entries from other bachelor programs are based on a catalog of requirements, described in the document "Specific Requirements for the Master Program Civil Engineering".


Career prospects

The graduates of the master program civil engineering are prepared for a leading professional activity in planning offices, at building contractors, building authorities, owners of major immovables and infrastructure, producers of building products, material testing institutions and in research facilities. It aims at activities in extensive and difficult projects, or in research and development. In Germany a great demand exists at this time for civil engineers in particular with good knowledge in structural engineering. The master program is based on this demand.


Learning target

The graduates of the master program civil engineering gain the specialist knowledge and the methods, to plan and erect new buildings, in particular concrete structures, steel structures, structures in water engineering, in foundation engineering, in water supply, waste and waste water disposal, including refurbishment of existing structures. This incorporates the realization of necessary preliminary investigations, the design of structural elements, the development of all necessary proofs and the project management.

The graduates of the master program are able to transfer the acquired knowledge in engineering, mathematics and natural sciences to practical applications and to analyze and solve problems on a scientific basis, even if these are unusual or incompletely defined and comprise complex specifications. The graduates are able to successfully work on research projects in the field of civil engineering. Therefore a comprehensive understanding of the underlying processes and the ability to model and calculate such processes, e.g. with Finite Elements Methods, are necessary.

The graduates for this purpose gain the skills to experimentally determine the necessary properties of soil, materials and components and to deal with construction-specific program systems to calculate mechanical behavior, the hydraulics of systems as well as other physical-chemical processes. They are enabled to work on problems of civil engineering and related disciplines on one´s own. They are able to use methods needed for the solution of technical problems and planning procedures. They are able to use new findings in a critical way and to improve methods and new developments.

The graduates can communicate on advanced contents and problems of civil engineering with specialists and the laity. They are able to present their methods and the results of their work in writing and verbally in a comprehensive way. The graduates in addition learn to work on problems in a team in a purposeful way, and to document and present their methods and results understandably with up-to-date presentation methods to other persons. They learn to take the leadership for parts of a project or the whole. They are able to familiarize themselves with a topic and to select suitable methods to solve questions and problems. They are able to acquire the necessary information about a topic on one´s own and to put the new information in the context of their knowledge.

The graduates are further qualified to develop concept designs for difficult projects in structural engineering, foundation engineering, bridge design and hydraulic engineering and to plan such constructions under consideration of the available information and restrictions. They can:

  • successfully cooperate with expert und inexpert partners from the public administration, the economy and science,
  • autonomously define, plan and conduct scientific tasks and to theoretically or experimentally investigate constructions, ground, materials, infrastructure as well as management duties,
  • responsibly evaluate and consider the interests of building partners, people concerned and the society as a whole.

Program structure

The master program consists of modules which 6 ECTS except for the master thesis. It is divided into a "Core Qualification”, into the four alternative specializations "Harbor Construction and Coast Protection", "Underground Engineering", "Structures" and "Water Management and Waste", as well as the master thesis. The core qualification covers 24 ECTS, each specialization covers 66 ECTS and the master thesis covers 30 ECTS. The program covers 120 ECTS in 2 years with 4 terms in total.

The core qualification contains a module "Finite Elements Methods" as well as a module “Sustainability and Risk Management” in the 1st term. In addition an open module during the 1st, 2nd or 3rd term from the field “Business and Management” as well as a module from the “Nontechnical Elective Complementary Courses for Master” are incorporated. The lectures of these open modules are selected from catalogs that are independend from the specific master program.

Each specialization covers 42 ECTS in the compulsory modules, that are indispensable for the specialization, and 24 ECTS in the mandatory electives. They contain also an open module and a project work with 6 ECTS in each case. The compulsory modules are located in the 1st and 2nd term.

The 4th term covers the master thesis. In addition lectures of the open module of the specialization can still be attended in the 4th term. The students must select a specialization and they have the choice to elect different options in the field of “Business and Management”, in the field of the “Nontechnical Elective Complementary Courses for Master” and in the mandatory electives of the specialization.

A term abroad is possible. In particular the 3rd semester is used by the students to go abroad, because in the 3rd term there are no compulsory modules, but only mandatory electives.

Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

The Nontechnical Academic Programms (NTA)

imparts skills that, in view of the TUHH’s training profile, professional engineering studies require but are not able to cover fully. Self-reliance, self-management, collaboration and professional and personnel management competences. The department implements these training objectives in its teaching architecture, in its teaching and learning arrangements, in teaching areas and by means of teaching offerings in which students can qualify by opting for specific competences and a competence level at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level. The teaching offerings are pooled in two different catalogues for nontechnical complementary courses.

The Learning Architecture

consists of a cross-disciplinarily study offering. The centrally designed teaching offering ensures that courses in the nontechnical academic programms follow the specific profiling of TUHH degree courses.

The learning architecture demands and trains independent educational planning as regards the individual development of competences. It also provides orientation knowledge in the form of “profiles”.

The subjects that can be studied in parallel throughout the student’s entire study program - if need be, it can be studied in one to two semesters. In view of the adaptation problems that individuals commonly face in their first semesters after making the transition from school to university and in order to encourage individually planned semesters abroad, there is no obligation to study these subjects in one or two specific semesters during the course of studies.

Teaching and Learning Arrangements

provide for students, separated into B.Sc. and M.Sc., to learn with and from each other across semesters. The challenge of dealing with interdisciplinarity and a variety of stages of learning in courses are part of the learning architecture and are deliberately encouraged in specific courses.

Fields of Teaching

are based on research findings from the academic disciplines cultural studies, social studies, arts, historical studies, communication studies, migration studies and sustainability research, and from engineering didactics. In addition, from the winter semester 2014/15 students on all Bachelor’s courses will have the opportunity to learn about business management and start-ups in a goal-oriented way.

The fields of teaching are augmented by soft skills offers and a foreign language offer. Here, the focus is on encouraging goal-oriented communication skills, e.g. the skills required by outgoing engineers in international and intercultural situations.

The Competence Level

of the courses offered in this area is different as regards the basic training objective in the Bachelor’s and Master’s fields. These differences are reflected in the practical examples used, in content topics that refer to different professional application contexts, and in the higher scientific and theoretical level of abstraction in the B.Sc.

This is also reflected in the different quality of soft skills, which relate to the different team positions and different group leadership functions of Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates in their future working life.

Specialized Competence (Knowledge)

Students can

  • explain specialized areas in context of the relevant non-technical disciplines,
  • outline basic theories, categories, terminology, models, concepts or artistic techniques in the disciplines represented in the learning area,
  • different specialist disciplines relate to their own discipline and differentiate it as well as make connections, 
  • sketch the basic outlines of how scientific disciplines, paradigms, models, instruments, methods and forms of representation in the specialized sciences are subject to individual and socio-cultural interpretation and historicity,
  • Can communicate in a foreign language in a manner appropriate to the subject.
Skills

Professional Competence (Skills)

In selected sub-areas students can

  • apply basic and specific methods of the said scientific disciplines,
  • aquestion a specific technical phenomena, models, theories from the viewpoint of another, aforementioned specialist discipline,
  • to handle simple and advanced questions in aforementioned scientific disciplines in a sucsessful manner,
  • justify their decisions on forms of organization and application in practical questions in contexts that go beyond the technical relationship to the subject.



Personal Competence
Social Competence

Personal Competences (Social Skills)

Students will be able

The students are supposed to:

  • become acquainted with geotechnical model tests, field tests and laboratory tests as well as corresponding measurement techniques. These compromise amongst others inclinometer measurements and geophone measurements as well as high-grade laboratory tests on the stress-strain relationship of soil specimens, e. g. triaxial tests, simple shear tests and resonant column tests.
  • gain insight into current soil mechanical research.
  • plan, coordinate, perform and evaluate soil mechanical tests in a team.
  • discuss, reflect, review and present the obtained results in a group.

An important learning target is the introduction to scientific work for students who plan a scientific career, and for those who will work in practice with the responsibility to order corresponding tests and evaluate the results.

The practical laboratory work is based on annualy changing problems, which are however related to the experience and results of the preceding year's course group.

Content

Port Logistics deals with the planning, control, execution and monitoring of material flows and the associated information flows in the port system and its interfaces to numerous actors inside and outside the port area.

The extraordinary role of maritime transport in international trade requires very efficient ports. These must meet numerous requirements in terms of economy, speed, safety and the environment. Against this background, the lecture Port Logistics deals with the planning, control, execution and monitoring of material flows and the associated information flows in the port system and its interfaces to numerous actors inside and outside the port area. The aim of the lecture Port Logistics is to convey an understanding of structures and processes in ports. The focus will be on different types of terminals, their characteristical layouts and the technical equipment used as well as the ongoing digitization and interaction of the players involved.

In addition, renowned guest speakers from science and practice will be regularly invited to discuss some lecture-relevant topics from alternative perspectives.

The following contents will be conveyed in the lectures:

  • Instruction of structures and processes in the port
  • Planning, control, implementation and monitoring of material and information flows in the port
  • Fundamentals of different terminals, characteristical layouts and the technical equipment used
  • Handling of current issues in port logistics

The topic of this course is water chemistry with respect to drinking water treatment and water distribution

Major topics are solubility of gases, carbonic acid system and calcium carbonate,  blending, softening, redox processes, materials and legal requirements on drinking water treatment. Focus is put on generally accepted rules of technology (DVGW- and DIN-standards).

Special emphasis is put on calculations using realistic analysis data  (e.g. calculation of pH or calcium carbonate dissolution potential) in exercises. Students can get a feedback and gain extra points for exam by solving problems for homework.

Knowledge of drinking water treatment processes is vital for this lecture. Therefore the most important processes are explained coordinated with the course “ Water resources management“ in the beginning of the semester.

The students are supposed to:

  • become acquainted with geotechnical model tests, field tests and laboratory tests as well as corresponding measurement techniques. These compromise amongst others inclinometer measurements and geophone measurements as well as high-grade laboratory tests on the stress-strain relationship of soil specimens, e. g. triaxial tests, simple shear tests and resonant column tests.
  • gain insight into current soil mechanical research.
  • plan, coordinate, perform and evaluate soil mechanical tests in a team.
  • discuss, reflect, review and present the obtained results in a group.

An important learning target is the introduction to scientific work for students who plan a scientific career, and for those who will work in practice with the responsibility to order corresponding tests and evaluate the results.

Content

The topic of this course is water chemistry with respect to drinking water treatment and water distribution

Major topics are solubility of gases, carbonic acid system and calcium carbonate,  blending, softening, redox processes, materials and legal requirements on drinking water treatment. Focus is put on generally accepted rules of technology (DVGW- and DIN-standards).

Special emphasis is put on calculations using realistic analysis data  (e.g. calculation of pH or calcium carbonate dissolution potential) in exercises. Students can get a feedback and gain extra points for exam by solving problems for homework.

Knowledge of drinking water treatment processes is vital for this lecture. Therefore the most important processes are explained coordinated with the course “ Water resources management“ in the beginning of the semester.

The students are supposed to:

  • become acquainted with geotechnical model tests, field tests and laboratory tests as well as corresponding measurement techniques. These compromise amongst others inclinometer measurements and geophone measurements as well as high-grade laboratory tests on the stress-strain relationship of soil specimens, e. g. triaxial tests, simple shear tests and resonant column tests.
  • gain insight into current soil mechanical research.
  • plan, coordinate, perform and evaluate soil mechanical tests in a team.
  • discuss, reflect, review and present the obtained results in a group.

An important learning target is the introduction to scientific work for students who plan a scientific career, and for those who will work in practice with the responsibility to order corresponding tests and evaluate the results.

The practical laboratory work is based on annualy changing problems, which are however related to the experience and results of the preceding year's course group.

  • legal framework,
  • instruments and methods of planning,
  • functional requirements,
  • stakeholders and actors
  • basic design requirements
  • different planning levels and
  • historical contexts.
The objective of the course is for students to acquire a basic understanding of urban development problems and approaches for solving them.
