Municipal Engineering

Original title in Czech: Městské inženýrstvíFASTAbbreviation: MIAcad. year: 2019/2020

Programme: Municipal Engineering

Length of Study: 4 years

Accredited from: 20.12.2012Accredited until: 31.12.2024


The bachelor’s study programme Municipal Engineering is aimed at the issues of urbanism and land use planning, public infrastructure, urban residential buildings, public service buildings, industrial engineering, economics in civil engineering, modern management, etc. The study programme includes theoretical subjects (for example, mathematics, physics, economics, information technology, etc.) in which students attain the necessary level of knowledge to manage the subsequent study of specialised subjects (e.g. land use planning, public investment in construction, etc.).
At the end of their studies, students independently produce a bachelor’s thesis under the expert and methodological supervision of an academic staff member. In the thesis, students deal with a demanding, individually assigned, specialised problem. They then defend the thesis before a commission for the state bachelor’s exam. A specialised discussion regarding the subjects covered in the study programme is evaluated at the same time as students’ knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge in the solution of technical problems in practice.

Key learning outcomes

Graduates from the bachelor’s study programme Municipal Engineering are able to solve all basic technical, economic and ecological problems connected with the maintenance of functional urban and municipal infrastructure and are capable of the creation and coordination of public infrastructure solutions, i.e. transport and technical infrastructure, open public areas, etc.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

Graduates from the four-year bachelor’s study programme Municipal Engineering at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Brno University of Technology gain knowledge in both theoretical and specialised disciplines. After completing their studies, graduates are bachelors with an education in engineering, technical subjects, economics and ecology. They are entitled to use the title “bakalář“ (abbreviated to Bc.) before their name.
Graduates gain knowledge and skills that they can utilize during administrative work and when performing management activities in the preparatory phases of the investment process and engineering activities, in the obtaining of source data for land use planning, in the areas of planning, construction, reconstruction, maintenance and in the maintenance of functional urban and municipal infrastructure. They can find employment in posts requiring the ability to carry out specialised tasks within the public administration apparatus.
With regard to the wide range of subjects offered in the syllabus, graduates can also find employment with contractors (in firms involved in investment, engineering and design activities).
Graduates can subsequently deepen their specialised education within courses offered via lifelong learning or, providing the conditions for admission are met, in consecutive master’s programmes at universities.
After gaining the stipulated amount of work experience, graduates can gain certification as a technician from the Czech Chamber of Chartered Engineers and Technicians Engaged in Construction.
The aim of the course is not only to produce graduates who have mastered theoretical and specialised subjects enabling them to independently make decisions about and solve all complex problems connected with the maintenance of functional urban and municipal infrastructure, but also to offer the labour market graduates of interest to recruiters for posts in state administration due to their preparation for the test of special professional competence, which is essential in the graduates‘ future job and guarantees a sufficient level of knowledge in the areas of law, building construction and land use planning.
