Academia. Civil Engineering at the Fachhochschule Nordostniedersachsen, Buxtehude, Germany

This paper, which mainly covers the civil engineering course at the Fachhochschule Nordostniedersachsen, starts with a brief survey of the German system of tertiary education. For more than 100 years there have been two different kinds of engineering course. Typical academic courses are offered by universities and Technische Hochschulen (TH) - Institutes of Technology. At the same time, engineering schools which were converted into Fachhochschulen (FH) - a kind of polytechnic - 20 years ago offer courses that emphasise practical application. This system applies to all branches of engineering and to other fields like industrial management. U. Albrecht, Professor Dr Ing.
