The growing demand for infrastructure to sustain modern societies and underpin economic and social development requires creative solutions from all engineering professionals.
The Master study programme provides students the skills to shape and maintain the built environment around us.
The aim is to provide postgraduate training for students wishing to improve their knowledge base in civil engineering and to gain additional professional skills.
This programme is suitable for students planning to pursue professional careers in consulting, industry and government service across the broad spectrum of the professional disciplines.
- Teaching staff with international scientific and research project experience,
- Faculty with various laboratories for experiments and practical experience,
- Offers three possible specializations: civil building construction, building construction and reconstruction, and construction work management – contractor.
Postgraduates become licensed professional engineers and work in positions in a wide range of settings including consulting firms, industry or government or start their own companies and are equipped to continue studies at PhD level and/or teach at higher education institutions.
