Building Products & Processes - today's trend! 

 

This innovative degree programme was developed on the initiative of our numerous industry and business partners. To be at the forefront of challenges in the construction industry, we train students to be engineers with a focus on the development of construction products and construction processes including:

  • Development of sustainable circular building products
  • Digitalisation, Building Information Modelling (BIM)
  • National and international construction and construction material regulations
  • Technical and commercial project management for the expansion and construction of buildings
  • Finishing trades in new and existing buildings
  • German and English technical language

Study, work, family & leisure - you could enjoy the benefits of flexible and individual studies in the heart of Europe. Thanks to the unique concept of the BPP degree programme, you don't have to sacrifice anything:

What does that mean for you?

  • Lectures on 3-4 fixed days each week, ...use the rest of the week flexibly according to your plans
  • All lectures in presence for maximum learning efficiency - as well as most of them hybrid, in case you are unable to attend
  • Intensification and practical relevance through numerous laboratory practicals and excursions to industry

How do we support you?

  • Intensive training in small workgroups
  • We have a network of company contacts for internships and theses
  • Communication channels to teaching staff are easy and direct, both on & offline

Training for the job

English is the main language in the international business world, but as a BPP engineer you will also need to read and understand German building regulations and laws. Are you a European or international student looking for a career in construction or product development and want to be proficient in both languages? Then the Building Products and Processes degree programme is just right for you.

  • All lectures are held in English
  • Lecture material is provided in German and English
  • Specific freedom in the lecture schedule to take part in our structured language programmes (e.g. German up to level C2)

Study at the European Campus Rottal-Inn in Pfarrkirchen.

career prospects

As a graduate engineer, you are able to develop, market and manage sustainable building products all over the world. You will use your knowledge of the complex building systems of building structures (concrete, masonry, steel and timber construction, hybrid construction methods). The same applies to your knowledge of the building structure (façade to roof) and interior finishing (floor, ceiling, wall). You have to be fit in these areas, because the demands on the products are increasing: architecturally and constructionally sophisticated, resource-saving, recyclable, healthy. And these are only some of the attributes that a building product should fulfil in the future. You also know the finishing trades (building automation, heating, ventilation, sanitation) including their numerous interfaces.

In the development and processing of building products, engineers in the Building Products and Processes degree programme rely on the continuous use of digital building blocks (BIM) for the efficient networking of all those involved in the planning, production and construction of buildings. After graduation, you will have a high level of language competence. The confident handling of both German- and English-language literature, building regulations, EN standards, etc. is daily business for engineers in the Building Products and Processes degree programme. You have to implement and coordinate building specifications and technical documents accordingly during construction. The modular structure of the lectures and the teaching of both technical and language skills offer graduates excellent career opportunities in all branches of the national and international construction industry. If you want, you can travel the world through your profession.
