Original title in Czech: Pozemní stavbyFASTAbbreviation: SAcad. year: 2023/2024Specialisation: Structural Engineering Design and Analysis

Programme: Civil Engineering

Length of Study: 1.5 years

Accredited from: 25.7.2007Accredited until: 31.8.2023


The Design of Building Constructions specialisation in the Building 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. During their studies, students extend their knowledge of the latest scientific and technical findings in the field of Building Constructions with the Design of Building Constructions specialisation.
During their studies, students become familiar with the latest scientific and technical findings in all their complex mutual interconnectivity and are guided towards the performance of individual 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.

Key learning outcomes

Graduates from the Design of Building Constructions specialisation of the Building Constructions course 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 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 engineering, technical 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 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 in the area of the design of building constructions.
Within the context of professional competence (after gaining the required amount of work experience), Building Constructions graduates with the Design of Building Constructions 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.
