Program description: Master's study programme with Full-Time Mode of Study (continuing) in English
The division of the three-semester follow-up master's study program Civil Engineering - Water Management and Water Structures is based on the tradition of long-term study programs at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Brno University of Technology (hereinafter “BUT Faculty”). The Czech Republic (hereinafter the “CR”) and the European Union (the “EU”).
The content of the study program is designed to meet the requirements of: - Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education and on the Amendment to Other Acts, as amended (hereinafter referred to as the “Higher Education Act”), - Government Regulation No. 274/2016 Coll., on Standards for Accreditation in Higher Education, - Government Regulation No. 275/2016 Coll., on Education in Higher Education all in accordance with the methodological materials of the Board of the National Accreditation Office for Higher Education and the documents of the Brno University of Technology (hereinafter “BUT”) and the Faculty of Civil Engineering of BUT.
The study program is taught in the Czech language in full-time form of study and is designed for graduates of bachelor's degree programs at universities and non-university technical universities in the Czech Republic and the EU. The content of the course builds primarily on the knowledge of graduates of the four-year bachelor study program Civil Engineering, specializing in Water Management and Water Structures at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the BUT. The study program also enables student mobility and part of study at other selected universities with a similar focus.
The study program is aimed at gaining knowledge and knowledge in theoretical and engineering disciplines in the field of water management and water structures. The content of the study program are theoretically focused subjects with examples of practical applications. Compulsory courses are the basis of the student's expertise, focusing on selected topics from landscape water management, municipal water management and water structures with links to the entire construction industry, as well as to ecology and the environment. Compulsory subjects form the basis for compulsory optional subjects that extend the student's expertise. The study is completed with subjects of legal and managerial basis.
The graduate will acquire professional knowledge at a high level and in the required quality, which will be applied in practice in the design, implementation, reconstruction and operation of water structures in the field of water management.
After passing the final state examination, the graduate is entitled to use the title “engineer” (abbreviated to Ing. before the name).
He / she has fulfilled all study obligations prescribed by the study plan of the study program, obtained the prescribed number of credits (90 credits) and submitted his / her diploma thesis within the set deadline. Successfully passed the state final examination, which consists of the following parts:
- defense of diploma thesis, - an oral state examination which comprises three thematic areas.
Availability for the disabled
At the Faculty of Civil Engineering, BUT, barrier-free access to all teaching rooms is currently provided. However, students must be physically fit to be qualified as a civil engineer. In practically oriented laboratory teaching, they must be able to operate measuring instruments and similar laboratory equipment independently without endangering themselves or their surroundings.
BUT provides support to students with specific needs, for details see Guideline 11/2017 (www.vutbr.cz/uredni-deska/international-documents-and-documents/-d141841/uplne-zneni-smernice-c-11- 2017-p147550). In order to promote equal access to higher education, BUT incorporates the Alfons Advisory Center, part of the BUT Institute of Lifelong Learning, to provide guidance and support services to applicants and students with specific educational needs. Specific educational needs include learning disabilities, physical and sensory disabilities, chronic somatic illness, autistic spectrum disorders, impaired communication skills and mental illness (alfons.vutbr.cz/o-nas).
Students are provided with information concerning the accessibility of study programs with respect to the specific needs of the applicant, information about the architectural accessibility of individual faculties and university parts, about accommodation at the BUT dormitory, about the possibilities of adapting the admission procedure and adapting the study itself. Other services of the Center for Students with Special Educational Needs also include interpreting and rewriting services, or assistance services - guiding, spatial orientation, in order to enable these students to demonstrate their skills and knowledge in the same way as other students. This is done through the so-called adaptation of study, ie by appropriate adjustment of the study regime, which cannot be understood as a simplification of the content of study or relief of study obligations.
