Civil Engineering Structures

Prospects of graduates

The graduate is able to analyse, design, construct and maintain engineering and transport structures, to carry out research with a high degree of creativity and independence. The graduates obtains deep knowledge in the field of bearing structures analyses, enabling him/her to design, maintain, reconstruct safe, useable, durable and aesthetic constructions. The study programme is focused on the acquisition of theoretical and practical knowledge and on the development of the graduate´s ability of his/her creative application when performing the profession. The graduate in the second degree studies masters principles and methods of analysis of bearing structures of civil and transport constructions, principles of their design, diagnosis and evaluation. When solving problems in different areas he/she is able to utilise the gained experience with the application of the available software tools. In addition to such knowledge and abilities he/she has obtained knowledge of economics of constructions, their preparation and management as well as the impact of buildings on the environment. The graduates are competent to perform the career of a designer, and later an authorised engineer in the design and execution of civil engineering and transport constructions. They can also apply in the preparation of investment construction engineering activities, in construction, management, operation and maintenance of transport infrastructure (roads, highways, urban roads, airports, railways and stations, bridges and underground structures). They can apply for positions in the drawing engineer´s offices, investment bodies, construction companies, in the state and public administration. By completion of the study programme and reaching the master's degree the graduate gets qualified to exercise a regulated profession. After completing the appropriate work experience and examination in front of the Examining Board of the Slovak Chamber of Civil Engineers (SCCE) the graduate may be authorized to work as an "authorized civil engineer". The content and structure of the study programme corresponds with the structure and scope of the core subjects required by SCCE to qualify for the profession of an authorized civil engineer in the category I3 - engineer for the statics of constructions, namely for buildings, engineering structures and geotechnics.
