BIBA160 (P110-0076, P110-0077, P110-0078) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011 , semester 1, mandatory course
BIBA160 (P110-0076, P110-0077, P110-0078) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , semester 1, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
90 class hours (= 67.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 180 hours (equivalent to 6 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 112.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:

Learning outcomes:
- After successfully completing this module, students will be able to develop solutions for the planning and construction of a small building independently.
- They will have basic knowledge about building construction engineering/building physics and be familiar with definitions from those fields, as well as day-to-day operations in those fields and construction management.
- Students will have insight into interdisciplinary connections.
- They will be able to prepare construction documents (drawings, certificates, lists/diagrams).
- They will be able to carry out development work in an independent, methodical and goal-oriented manner.
- Students will have acquired problem-solving and intuitive thinking skills.
- They will be able to organize themselves as an individual, as well as in a group, independently.
- Students will improve their communication and presentation skills.
- Their intrinsic motivation will increased.
