The Master’s study programme Civil Engineering in Building Construction offers a comprehensive post-graduate degree in the field of civil engineering with a focus on building construction. In addition to an extensive, in-depth education in construction engineering, students may choose elective subjects from two different course pools. Together this enables graduates of this programme to hold management positions upon completion of their studies.
Master¨s in Civil Engineering programme is focus in the next subjects:
-Building construction & structural subjects of building construction
-Construction industry and construction management
-Construction operation and construction process engineering
-Building technology, automation and simulation
-Statics, Dynamics and Finite Element Method
-Foundation engineering, soil mechanics and civil engineering
-Hydraulic engineering, bridge and infrastructure construction
-Environmental protection, building ecology, building physics
-English, social skills, practical projects, master’s thesis
Practice and research
Practical relevance in teaching and research is very important at the FH. The fourth semester is all about a practice-oriented diploma thesis, this ensures a smooth career start. In addition, numerous part-time lecturers from the construction industry and the construction industry bring up-to-date industry knowledge to the lecture hall. Existing research collaborations with Austrian and international universities will be expanded.
With the two catalogs of electives “ Structural Engineering” and “*Integral Planning and Building *”, students can specialize individually in the second and third semesters of their studies . The graduates will work in companies in the construction industry, the construction industry, the building trade, the construction supply industry or in research institutes, engineering, architecture and civil engineering offices. The path to self-employment (e.g. as an expert) is open to graduates as well as working in public administration or with building supervisory authorities and public clients.
Top job prospects
With around 250,000 jobs, the construction industry is one of the most important national employers . Around a quarter of the nationwide construction work is generated in Upper Austria . In order to be able to provide this construction work in the future, the construction industry needs more than 800 academics . In order to meet this need, future leaders are trained in a practical way in this future-oriented master’s degree.
Credit for master builder or civil engineer examination
The master’s degree in civil engineering in building construction was developed in close cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Architects and Engineering Consultants. Large parts of the master builder or civil engineer examination are credited to the graduates .
