  • Form of examination: written exam (Klausur) (120 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each semester
  • Examination number: 81064 ("Higher Mathematics for Civil Engineers I")

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • vector spaces,
  • matrices, linear mappings, determinants,
  • systems of linear equations,
  • eigenvalue problems,
  • vector calculus and analytical geometry,
  • linear optimisation,
  • probability theory and statistics.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The following competencies are to be promoted:

Professional competence, methodological competence; social competence

Learning outcomes: Upon successful completion of the module, the students will be able

  • to deepen, if necessary, the specific mathematical concepts and methods of linear algebra, analytical geometry, linear programming and probability theory used in the context of civil engineering, as required in the further course of the study programme (since they know and understand them);
  • to work on and solve problems in civil engineering by means of mathematical methods and models, as they have learnt this via simple examples;
  • to deal confidently and independently with the terms, statements and methods from the lecture and to apply the presented methods and concepts in examples;
  • to work on tasks in written form and present them (thereby training their presentation and communication skills);
  • to acquire knowledge through self-study and to develop their ability to work in a team by working in smaller groups.
