They are able to work in state administration, where they may carry out all kinds of activities, including management.
Graduates from the tudy programme Municipal Engineering are able to solve all basic technical, economic and ecological problems connected with the maintenance of functional urban and municipal infrastructure and are capable of the creation and coordination of public infrastructure solutions, i.e. transport and technical infrastructure, open public areas, etc.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

After completing their studies, graduates are engineers with an education in engineering, technical subjects, economics and ecology. They are entitled to use the title “engineer“ (abbreviated to “Ing.”) before their name. Graduates gain knowledge and skills that they can utilize during administrative work and when performing management activities in the preparatory phases of the investment process and engineering activities, in the obtaining of source data for land use planning, in the areas of planning, construction, reconstruction, maintenance and in the maintenance of functional urban and municipal infrastructure. They can find employment in posts requiring the ability to carry out specialised tasks within the public administration apparatus. With regard to the wide range of subjects offered in the syllabus, graduates can also find employment with contractors (in firms involved in investment, engineering and design activities). Graduates can subsequently deepen their specialised education within courses offered via lifelong learning.
