Program Details

Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is a small and very international university with a highly distinctive spectrum of subjects. Situated in the historic city of Weimar, Germany, it originated from two progressive institutions: The Weimar Saxon-Grand Ducal Art School and the “Staatliches Bauhaus”. 

The Master’s degree program “Natural Hazards and Risks in Structural Engineering” is an intensive and application-based, advanced course of study. The program is intensively supervised and research-oriented. It provides students with a solid technical basis in the key areas of structural engineering through a coherent and coordinated programme, integrating research and practical applications. The program enables students to acquire excellence in oral and written skills. By providing students with advanced scientific and interdisciplinary knowledge, they are able to take on demanding engineering tasks in the areas of planning, construction and realisation of structures under specific conditions. They are also able to carry out site- or structure-specific risk analysis using modern tools to estimate the threat of natural hazards.

In addition to strengthening their theoretical and scientific competence, students develop skills in modelling, simulation and application of performance-based design, fieldwork and laboratory investigations.
