Globalization in general and the construction industry in particular has brought about new demands on building and construction projects. Planning, too, is changing in line with the new requirements. Moreover, digital technology has also made lasting changes to the building industry, from the planning and production stage through to execution, and job profiles are getting more sophisticated accordingly. The Master program teaches in particular theoretical and practice-oriented skills of digitalanalysis, design, planning and production methods, in addition to the traditional design and planning methods, and gives a detailed overview of the lastest technological developments.The program also includes operational aspects of information technology, new developments in building materials and scientific work.

Interaction / Cooperation with external partners and networks: The programs on qualifying engineers for interdisciplinary, international and to a growing extent digitally supported jobs. Special emphasis is laid on the cooperation between university and external partners, to left to other universities, planning offices, the construction industry and to software manufacturers. The standard study period is four semesters. The specializations Facade Design and Computational Design are taught in English.

Master’s degree \ Internationally recognized

Students graduating from this master’s degree will earn the „Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)“ Degree, which is internationally recognized. The degree qualifies for a position in the senior public service.

Job prospects \ From planning offices to research institutes

The MID qualifies graduate positions in the private commercial sector as well as the public sector.
Job sectors include in particular architectural offices, engineering and planning offices as well as the construction industry, research institutes and universities. Other possibilities are thus in specific technological fields, such as studies in software application and simulation technology, research in new manufacturing methods, of construction or material innovation; these areas are covered in special modules with changing themes and best-practice examples.
