Welcome at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science

© FBG/C.Bierwagen

We welcome all first-year students to the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science. We have put a range of information together to make it easier for you to start your studies.


For each degree courses, we organise an introductory session (Einführungsveranstaltung). During these sessions, usually in the week before the beginning of the lecture period, you will get an overview of the respective subject, the organisation of your studies, the examination requirements and also get to know the campus and service facilities.

The student representatives (Student Council / Fachschaftsrat) usually also offer orientation days to promote contact between students.

The dates are also available in the online course schedule of the university.


Additionally, for all new registered international students there are orientation days organized by the International Office. There you will get information that will be important for your stay in Hannover and your study at Leibniz Universität Hannover.
