Branch detail

Building Material Engineering


Original title in Czech: Stavebně materiálové inženýrství
Abbreviation: M
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 4 years
Programme: Civil Engineering
Faculty: Faculty of Civil Engineering
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 30.10.2003
Accredited until: 31.8.2023
Profile of the branch:
The aim of studying in the four-year Civil Engineering bachelor’s programme in the field of Building Material Engineering is to gain a comprehensive foundation in essential theoretical understanding and general technical knowledge from throughout the civil engineering discipline. Furthermore, students will be acquainted with basic knowledge particularly from production technology and specialised construction disciplines and, in addition, gain a higher level of knowledge and orientation within the issues of the field through the deepening of theoretical, technological and structural engineering knowledge. The gained specialised knowledge will allow graduates to understand the problems arising in their field within a wider context and will increase their employability in industry.
Proof of attaining the final goal of the course, i.e. the mastery of the studied material and the ability to take a comprehensive, independent approach, will be the production and successful defence of a bachelor’s thesis on an assigned topic from the area of production technology or the application of building materials.
Key learning outcomes:
Graduates from the field of Building Material Engineering are well-prepared from the theoretical standpoint, particularly in the areas of silicate structure, structural physics and thermodynamics, which provides them with the prerequisites for attaining more complex knowledge in connection with practical laboratory training.
In their laboratory work graduates will have become acquainted with the characteristics and testing of basic building materials, particularly mortars, ceramics and special ceramics, concrete, light materials and insulation materials (including special types), timber and metals. Through the combination of practical and theoretical knowledge graduates will have attained one of the goals of the course, this being the attainment of more complex knowledge and skills.
The emphasis placed on the connection of theoretical and experimental training, together with the acquaintance of students with real operational technologies on specialised excursions is based on the intention to equip graduates with a complete set of knowledge and practical skills.
Alongside this, the graduate is capable of applying building materials in structures, including prefabricated components and their installation, diagnostic methods and practical demonstrations on structures, which supports the fundamental goal of providing graduates with the prerequisites for employment in industry.
