Statistics on the number of students studying civil engineering for the academic year of 2009/2010
Still lacking civil engineers: 3300 graduates cannot fulfill the need for 4500 young engineers.
The numbers for new students provide some hope: 8700 young persons begin their civil engineering studies.
„Employers in Germany's construction industry must continue to cope with a further receding number of young engineers. Until at least 2014 the number of recent graduates will not cover the demand for new engineers", Dr. Manfred Nußbaumer, Vice President of the main professional association of the German construction industry and chair for the presidential committee on civil engineering education of said organization, declared today in Berlin in response to the publication of the civil engineering student statistics for 2009/2010.
