FASTAbbreviation: MAcad. year: 2017/2018
Programme: Civil Engineering
Length of Study: 1.5 years
Accredited from: 25.7.2007Accredited until: 31.8.2023
The Building Material Engineering branch of the trimestral consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering follows on from four-year bachelor’s courses of a similar technical nature. During their studies, students will extend their knowledge of the latest scientific and technical findings in the field of Building Material Engineering.
During the first semester, students will acquire new theoretical knowledge that is a necessary prerequisite for the further development of their specialised knowledge and skills. Other specialised engineering subjects are gradually introduced to the syllabus and students acquire more detailed knowledge about new approaches to dealing with the issues of the field of construction and materials. In the last two semesters of study, the possibility of narrower specialisation is offered in connection with the selected topic of the master´s thesis and within the framework of common compulsory elective subjects.
Key learning outcomes
Graduates from the Building Material Engineering specialisation have gained highly specialised (theoretical and professional) knowledge in the studied field. They are capable of applying the acquired knowledge in the solution of problems within the given field of study. They have acquired knowledge regarding the rehabilitation of concrete, the durability of materials and economic aspects of production technology, management and marketing.
They are capable, within the scope of the skills they have gained, of independently solving even demanding specialised problems (the independent solution of complex engineering, technical and managerial problems in the construction industry), and are thus prepared for their engineering career in industry. Graduates are prepared, both theoretically and practically - through laboratory work - for managing the production of binders, ceramics, concrete, components and other building materials but also for utilizing their knowledge about the properties of materials during the realization and reconstruction of buildings.
Within the context of professional competence, graduates can find employment throughout the production technology field, dealing with the production of all kinds of building materials, or as quality or environment managers in construction firms. They are able to manage complex technical and specialised activities or projects and take responsibility for their quality. They are also capable of taking responsibility for the specialised management of individuals and groups.
