In this International Construction - Practice and Law program from University of Stuttgart, you will learn about the technical, financial and legal aspects of international construction from both theoretical and practical perspectives.


For years there has been a shortage of suitable skilled employees and managerial staff in the real estate and construction industries, particularly in the fields of international construction and building law. Available training is failing to meet requirements, both in terms of quantity and quality, in the short, middle and long term. The increasing internationalization of companies active in the construction and real estate industries is compounding the situation.

The ability to work successfully in an international field requires specialist knowledge of standard international contracts, such as those used by the World Bank and many other international development banks.

The postgraduate further education study program International Construction: Practice and Law aims to help fill this gap in the market. 

Which interests and skills should I have?

The International Construction - Practice and Law program from University of Stuttgart is suitable for a range of professionals working in the construction industry such as architecture, construction, engineering, or surveying, as well as lawyers interested in specializing in international construction and law.

Applicants must have at least two years’ work experience. The course is taught in English, so applicants must also demonstrate sufficient English skills.

What job prospects are available to me after graduation?

There is a wide range of career opportunities in the construction industry e.g. in project management and consulting.
