Constructions and Traffic Structures

Original title in Czech: Konstrukce a dopravní stavbyFASTAbbreviation: KAcad. year: 2022/2023Specialisation: Traffic Structures

Programme: Civil Engineering

Length of Study: 1.5 years

Accredited from: 25.7.2007Accredited until: 31.8.2023


The Traffic Constructions specialisation of the Structures and Traffic Constructions branch of the trimestral consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering follows on from four-year bachelor’s courses of a similar technical nature. In the later part of the course, it is purposefully divided into two specialised fields and areas of focus, these being the design and technical layout of roads and the design and technical layout of railway structures and constructions.
During their studies, students acquire knowledge of the latest scientific and technical findings in all their complex mutual interconnectivity and they are guided towards the performance of independent and creative engineering work. They apply the knowledge acquired in the individual subjects in individually assigned engineering and technical tasks concerning the issues of the given field of study. During the course, great emphasis is placed on independent and creative engineering work. After graduation, students are able to solve even demanding specialised issues independently and are thus ready for their engineering career in industry.

Key learning outcomes

Graduates from the Structures and Traffic Constructions field of study - Traffic Constructions specialisation - 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 and specialisation.
They are capable, within the scope of the skills they have gained, of independently solving even demanding specialised problems (the independent solution of complex structural engineering and managerial problems in the construction industry), 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 from this programme 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, and not only during the comprehensive design of the construction of traffic structures but also during the preparation and realization of such structures.
Within the context of professional competence (after gaining the required amount of work experience), Structures and Traffic Constructions graduates with a specialisation in Traffic Constructions 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.
