Branch detail

Water Management and Water Structures


Abbreviation: V
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 1.5 years
Programme: Civil Engineering
Faculty: Faculty of Civil Engineering
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 25.7.2007
Accredited until: 31.8.2023
Profile of the branch:
The Water Management and Water Structures branch of the trimestral consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering follows on from four-year bachelor’s courses of a similar technical nature.
During their studies, students become familiar with the latest scientific and technical findings in all their complex mutual interconnectivity.
The subjects of this programme focus on issues connected with the design, management and organization of the construction of water management structures and buildings, and the operation of water management structures and systems. They also cover requirements for the protection of the environment and for environmental engineering, including knowledge of the national and European legislation in this field.
Students apply the knowledge acquired in individual subjects in dealing with the issues of the given field of study. During the course, great emphasis is placed on independent and creative engineering work. Graduates will acquire the knowledge needed to produce their master´s thesis independently, thus confirming their readiness to find comprehensive solutions to technical problems in industry.
After graduation, they are able to deal with even demanding specialised issues independently and are thus prepared for their engineering career in industry.
Key learning outcomes:
Graduates from the Water Management and Water Structures field of study have gained highly specialised (theoretical and professional) knowledge in the studied field and specialisation. They are capable of applying the acquired knowledge in the solution of problems within the given field of study.
They are capable, within the scope of the skills they have gained, of independently solving even demanding specialised problems (the independent solution of complex engineering, technical and managerial problems in the construction industry) in the area of water management and water structures, and are thus prepared for their engineering career in industry. They are capable of implementing comprehensive solutions to engineering problems.
As highly-qualified specialists, graduates are able to hold high engineering and managerial posts and successfully perform the functions required of them, and are equipped with the prerequisites for the solution of even complex technical problems, not only concerning comprehensive planning of water management structures and buildings but also during their preparation and realization.
Within the context of professional competence (after gaining the required amount of work experience), graduates with the Water Management and Water Structures specialisation can gain certification from the Czech Chamber of Chartered Engineers and Technicians Engaged in Construction. They are able to manage complex technical or specialised activities or projects and take responsibility for their quality. They are also capable of taking responsibility for the specialised management of individuals and groups.
