Specialization of the Faculty of Civil Engineering

The Faculty of Civil Engineering was the first part of the Czech Technical University which came into existence in 1899. Now it is one of the two biggest faculties having 22 institutes and providing university education for more than 4600 students in Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral study programmes.

Institutes and centres:

Bachelor’s Study Programmes:

 (accredited and offered since 2004) last from 6 to 8 semesters:

Civil Engineering (in Czech or English, with full-time or combined mode of study)

Architectural Engineering

Geodesy and Cartography

Architectural engineering is a new 4 year Bachelor’s study programme to be starting in the academic year 2005/06. The students will be educated in both architecture and civil engineering realizing their own projects and one semester of practical experience.

Master’s Study Programmes:

Three to four semesters on completion of the Bachelor’s study or ten to twelve semester programmes on entry into the faculty. The Master’s study programme has five fields:

1) Building Constructions – the graduates are provided with the integral knowledge, skills and understanding of the architectural and structural engineering aspects, as well as the development and protection of the environment.

In the final year of studies, the students choose one of the five professional specializations:

- Building Construction Design

-Architecture and Building Constructions

-Structural Engineering Design and Analysis

-Building Services and Construction Process

-Technology and Management

2) Constructions and Traffic Structures – essential parts of the study are the design and execution of railway structures, access, airport and urban roads, the city transport engineering and the organization and management of traffic in cities. In the last year of study the knowledge is extended in eight optional specializations:

Concrete Structures and Bridges

Metal and Timber Structures and Bridges

Structural Mechanics and Computer Technology

Construction Quality Control

Roads and Motorways

Railway Structures

Transport Engineering


3) Water Management and Water Structures – the basis of the study in this field is the knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology, which is further developed in the theoretical disciplines of civil engineering and water management – Structural Mechanics, Hydraulics, Hydrology and Hydrogeology.

4) Civil Engineering Management – professional education is achieved in such subjects as Building Constructions, Concrete Structures, Traffic Structures, Water Structures, Construction Technology and Mechanization and Execution of Structures.

5) Building Materials Engineering – the study is further specialized in the following fields:

Cement Technology

Building Materials and Components

Concrete Maintenance

Building Materials Economics

The study is aimed at gaining further applied knowledge and experience, both in the laboratories, on study trips to the up-to-date plants at home and abroad.

Civil Engineering in English

This Master’s study programme whose the only filed of the study - Building Constructions is intended for both foreign and Czech students, who are able to study in English. The programme is based on acquiring the necessary theoretical, professional and practical knowledge in the range of civil engineering, and on mastering their applications and the development of the student’s ability for independent creativity.

Geodesy and Cartography

This Master’s study programme has only one study field – Geodesy and Cartography. The theoretical fundamentals are further developed by other disciplines which enable students to adopt all the measurements, computing and projection techniques: Theory of Errors, Survey Adjustments, Theoretical Surveying, Engineering Surveying, Mapping, Photogrammetry, Mathematical Cartography, geophysics and Geodynamics, Geographic Information Systems etc. The acquired knowledge is supplemented by legal, economic and other information from related disciplines.

Doctoral Study Programme

The doctoral study programme Civil Engineering has three study fields being accredited in Czech in full-time or combined mode of study:

Civil Engineering:

-Theory of Structures – oriented towards structural analysis, concrete and masonry structures, steel and timber structures and testing methods

- Water Management and Water Structures – concentrated on hydraulics, hydrology and technology of water, constructing of water structures, irrigation systems, sewage treatments plants and city network.

-Building Constructions – covering structural analysis, environmental and energy design of buildings and construction management.

Building Materials Engineering – specialized in physical and material engineering, structure and technology of building materials and redevelopment of building materials.

Civil Engineering Management – directed towards the organization and planning of constructions, the economy of building enterprises, civil engineering and investment.

Forensic Engineering – prepares experts for technical analysis of building accidents, evaluation of defects and breakdowns of buildings and determination of prices of real properties.

Geodesy and Cartography – is oriented on theoretical and technical surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing and geographical information systems.
