Water Management and Water Structures

Original title in Czech: Vodní hospodářství a vodní stavbyFASTAbbreviation: VAcad. 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 study programme in the field of Water Management and Water Structures is to gain mastery over a comprehensive foundation of essential theoretical and general technical knowledge from throughout the civil engineering discipline. The theoretical basis of the programme comprises the natural sciences, in particular the physico-mathematical disciplines, extended within the regions of hydraulics and hydrology.
After four semesters concentrating on the theoretical science background of the field and mastering essential engineering and technical scientific disciplines, students spend the next four semesters gaining a specialised grounding in basic knowledge and information with regard to the issues of the field of Water Management and Water Structures. The study of specialised subjects is continually supplemented by further deepening of theoretical, construction and technical knowledge in such a way that graduates can deal with the issues specific to the field at a higher level and thus gain specialised knowledge with understanding within the widest possible context, and at the needed level of quality for them to find employment in their area of specialisation in industry. In their final year students may choose, within the framework of the studied field and via the selection of a topic for their bachelor’s thesis, a specialisation which allows them to further deepen their knowledge in the areas of Municipal Water Management, Landscape Water Management, and Water Structures.

Key learning outcomes

Graduates from the Civil Engineering bachelor’s study programme in the field of Water Management and Water Structures are university-educated specialists able to work in industry in positions requiring the individual solution of more complex construction, technical and managerial problems with an approach drawing from their deeper knowledge of the water management field, and also the wider theoretical context. It is expected that such graduates will find employment in industry in technical or managerial positions requiring the ability to work individually to carry out quite demanding specialised tasks during the design and operation of water management structures. They may gain employment in design or construction firms, in the area of public administration or in other similar specialised or technical areas. After gaining practical experience, graduates may hold higher managerial positions, or engage in private enterprise in the field.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

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.
