Specific admission requirements

Candidates applying to study in their chosen field in the consecutive master’s study programme must demonstrate knowledge and understanding within the scope specified by the appropriate directive of the Dean of FCE BUT in the following ways: through successful completion of a four-year Civil Engineering bachelor’s study programme at FCE BUT or at another university (in which case the programme must provide an adequate basis for the pursuit of further studies in the chosen field of study of the consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering); or through completion of any bachelor’s study programme and the demonstration of sufficient knowledge from the key specialised subjects of the given field chosen by the student wishing to study in the consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering; or via passing an entrance exam in natural science subjects (mathematics, physics) and general foundation subjects from the construction field as well as key specialised subjects within the scope of knowledge required from graduates of the four-year bachelor’s programme Civil Engineering at FCE BUT or at other civil engineering faculties in the Czech Republic or abroad.

Key learning outcomes

Graduates from the consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering have gained highly specialised (theoretical and professional) knowledge within their studied field. They are capable of applying this knowledge in the solution of problems within the given field of study. They are entitled to use the title "inženýr" (abbreviated to Ing.) before their name.
They are capable, within the scope of the skills they have gained, of independently solving even demanding specialised problems and are thus prepared for work as an engineer in industry. As a highly-qualified specialist they are able to hold high engineering and managerial posts and successfully perform the functions required of them, and are equipped with the prerequisites for the solution of even complex technical problems, and not only during the comprehensive design of structures, but also during the preparation and realization of such structures.
Within the scope of their competence (after gaining the required amount of work experience), graduates from the consecutive master’s study programme Civil Engineering can gain certification. They are capable of managing complex technical or specialised activities or projects and take responsibility for their quality. They are also able to take responsibility for the professional management of individuals and groups.

Access to further education

Graduates may continue their education further through a doctoral study programme, where they may gain the title Ph.D. With regard to graduates’ knowledge of foreign languages in their specialised area they can study for a doctorate either in the Czech Republic or abroad.
