Specific admission requirements

Candidates applying to study in the bachelor’s study programme Municipal Engineering must demonstrate knowledge and understanding within the scope specified by the appropriate directive of the Dean of FCE BUT. This requires them to have successfully completed their secondary education with a “Maturita“ final secondary school exam. Then, either the grade point average from the candidate’s secondary school allows acceptance without an entrance exam, or an entrance exam is sat featuring mathematics and physics papers based on the current syllabus taught at grammar schools.

Profile of the programme

Professionally oriented.
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.

Access to further studies

The bachelor’s study programme Municipal Engineering is compatible with bachelor’s programmes offered at other civil engineering schools at Czech technical universities and enables, in the spirit of the Bologna Declaration, students to continue their education via master’s study programmes not only at sister universities in the Czech Republic, but also at universities abroad. It is expected that the consecutive master’s study programme Municipal Engineering offered at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Brno University of Technology will be accredited within the next 3 years in order that graduates of the bachelor’s study programme may continue their studies in the most convenient manner possible. It is also possible for graduates from the study programme Municipal Engineering to study and gain education at the 1-and-a-half-year consecutive study programme Municipal Engineering and Construction at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at VSB – Technical University of Ostrava.
