Requirements and enrollment
|No local entrance restrictions
|Before you can start this Bachelor programme, you must have completed a 13-week pre-study placement, six weeks of which was in masonry or reinforced concrete construction. If you have already completed a relevant apprenticeship or work experience, this time will count towards your pre-study placement. The pre-study placement must generally be completed before starting your degree programme, and must be demonstrated during enrolment. If you are unable to complete all 13 weeks before starting university, you must demonstrate completion of the remaining weeks by the start of the third semester at the latest.
|Additional entrance requirements
Applicants who did not acquire their study qualification at a German-speaking institution must demonstrate that they have knowledge of German at level C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL), for example by proving that they have passed the TestDaF (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache) with an average score of ‘4’, or must furnish equivalent proof.

commences in Mai 2024.
Detailed description of the degree programme
The German-Spanish Bachelor´s degree study program in Civil Engineering - with focus on Transportation Engineering - represents an extension of the existing Bachelor´s degree course at the Faculty of Civil Engineering. It appeals to all students who are thinking of a career in the Spanish-speaking (construction) world in the future. Studies take place at the FH Münster and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in San Sebastian, Northern Spain. The study program is completed with the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) of both countries – in other words the students acquire a double degree.
Content and course sequence
According to the guidelines of the participating universities, the program comprises eight semesters, of which the first six semesters are spent in Germany and the remaining two in Spain. After a preliminary internship in craftsmanship, the course of studies in Germany is divided into two semesters of basic studies, in which the scientific basics are dealt with, two semesters of moderately differentiated specialist studies, in which the engineering basics are taught, and two semesters of advanced studies, in which the scientific basics are deepened. By means of integrated, subject-related language courses during the first six semesters, students will be able to speak and write technical Spanish at a level of at least B1.
The in-depth study is then continued in the last two semesters of the program, which take place in Spain. On the basis of selected specialist subjects, the program focuses on the specific characteristics of Spain in the field of transportation engineering. The teaching is accompanied by an intensive practical phase in cooperation with offices and companies from the Spanish construction industry. By doing so, an intense and direct experience of the Spanish professional world is offered to the students. The conclusion of the eighth semester is the bachelor thesis to be written in Spain, which will take nine weeks for completion
By completing this study program successfully, graduates have access to a large job market in the entire German- and Spanish-speaking world. The majority of the graduates will work in German and Spanish construction companies, where the construction of traffic facilities is in the main business. Further fields of work can be found in engineering offices which plan, inspect and supervise traffic engineering construction projects as well as in the administration of infrastructure - predominantly in the public sector.
