Students, enrolled in the undergraduate programme in Civil Engineering at Ruhr West, take courses in mathematics, basic sciences (mechanics, materials, and physics), engineering design in various disciplines, and principles in project management. They learn how to plan and erect buildings above the ground level and structures for industrial purposes, using materials such as concrete, steel and wood. Some courses come along with exercises in state-of-the-art equipped laboratories, others involve practice-oriented case studies and foster social skills.
