Programme: Civil Engineering

Length of Study: 4 years

Accredited from: 25.7.2007Accredited until: 31.12.2020


Study branch Building Structures is due to its complex content divided into four topics: Building Structure, Architecture in Building Structure, Technology and building process control, Building Services. The study is focused on knowledge in building structures and on education to self-scientific work oriented to specific professional areas of particular topic. Deepening of knowledge and abilities in complex and theoretical approach to technical problem solving and justification will be supported during mathematics and physics lectures. Managing theoretical and scientific disciplines which are related to thesis is ensured by passing selected obligatory lectures. Student is solving under guidance of his supervisor given professional problem according to theoretical and experimental requirements and defends results in his thesis. A graduate of PhD program, branch Building Structures is prepared for expected fulfillment of research and development process in selected area of the industry. Due to acquired knowledge he is capable of self-assertion to solve challenging architectural and constructional problems, technology and management of building realization, building services. The continuous active scientific activity is the qualification for possible engagement of graduates as members of the academic staffs at universities.
