Building Constructions

Original title in Czech: Pozemní stavbyFASTAbbreviation: SAcad. year: 2013/2014

Programme: Civil Engineering

Length of Study: 4 years

Accredited from: 30.10.2003Accredited until: 1.8.2015


The aim of studying in the four-year Civil Engineering bachelor’s programme in the field of Building Constructions is to gain mastery over a comprehensive foundation in essential theoretical understanding and general technical knowledge from throughout the civil engineering discipline. The course begins with theoretical subjects within which students gain the necessary level of knowledge to cope with the specialised construction and engineering subjects that follow. Economics and social science subjects also form part of the syllabus. In the final two semesters students choose a narrower field of specialisation within the subjects offered in the field of Building Constructions, in the areas of the design of buildings, the structure and statics of buildings, building services, and the technologies and operation of buildings. Through taking specialised subjects students gain the necessary deepening of theoretical and specialised knowledge to build their professional profile and obtain a prerequisite for the ability to utilise an independent creative approach when solving the specific problems of their field.
Under the specialised and methodological supervision of a tutor, students independently produce an individually assigned bachelor’s thesis on a demanding, specialised problem, and then defend it before a commission for the bachelor’s Final State Examination. A specialised discussion on the subjects covered by the given field of study is evaluated at the same time as students’ understanding and ability to apply their knowledge to solving technical problems encountered in industry.

Key learning outcomes

During the four-year course, graduates from the Civil Engineering bachelor’s study program gain a comprehensive set of theoretical and specialised knowledge from the field of Building Constructions. They are purposefully guided through their studies to the independent mastery of specialised applications and theoretically-supported solutions which form the prerequisites for the development of their creative activities. Graduates are thus capable of understanding and creating theoretically-supported solutions within the full scope of their complex mutual interconnectivity during the design or evaluation of structures and during their realization, and can apply the knowledge they have gained in practice in their future career. In the final year of study students choose a specialisation from those on offer, focusing on the areas of the design of buildings, the structure and statics of buildings, building services, and the technologies and operation of buildings. Through the study of specialised subjects graduates thus gain the necessary deepening of their knowledge within the scope of the particular issues of their field of study.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

After graduation from the Civil Engineering bachelor’s study programme in the field of Building Constructions, the graduate is capable of independently solving even quite demanding specialised problems in the field of Building Constructions. Through their studies they have gained real prerequisites for their successful employment in higher technical and managerial positions. They are able to prepare documentation for the preparation and realization of construction works and for the processing of construction and technical surveys, and prepare expert evaluations and opinions.
Graduates can continue their education in consecutive master’s programmes and gain the title “inženýr“.
The education attained enables graduates, after meeting legal requirements, to be certified as construction technicians or construction engineers in one of the certified fields of the Czech Chamber of Chartered Engineers and Technicians Engaged in Construction.
