Constructions and Traffic Structures

Original title in Czech: Konstrukce a dopravní stavbyFASTAbbreviation: KDSAcad. year: 2022/2023

Programme: Civil Engineering

Length of Study: 4 years

Accredited from: 25.7.2007Accredited until: 31.12.2020


PhD study of Constructions and Traffic Structures study branch is focused on a scientific training, methodology of research work and research development in the fields of structural theory, reliability and failure mechanism of structures. There are several study directions - structural mechanics, concrete and masonry structures, steel, timber and composite structures, geotechnics, railway structures, roads structures, experimental work and building testing.
Scientific preparation is based on knowledge of theoretical disciplines of natural sciences base together with theoretical and scientific disciplines of water management orientation. Graduate of PhD study is ready to work in research and development, using creative approach for problems solving of progressive structures including traffic structures. Continuous active scientific and pedagogical activity is a good condition for eventual qualification of graduates as academic employees at Universities.
