Civil Engineering & Architecture
In the project SCiENCE_LINKnockberge final theses are scientifically supervised
The degree program in Civil Engineering & Architecture stands for a practice-oriented education in the very broad, incredibly diverse and fascinating professional field of construction.
In shaping our built world, the vision, the design, the technical solution, the practical implementation as well as the life cycle and its added value and its impact on our environment are equally valuable and important to us. We educate critically thinking and responsibly acting people with specialization in architecture, civil engineering and real estate and infrastructure project development. We promote the interaction of these disciplines. The expertise of the respective other faculties is only a door handle away on the Spittal campus and thus accessible to all students. Due to the close connection with practice, current impulses for teaching and research are constantly generated.
The range of courses in the study area includes the following study and further education courses:
Bei der Gestaltung unserer gebauten Welt sind uns die Vision, der Entwurf, die technische Lösung, die praktische Umsetzung sowie der Lebenszyklus und seine Wertschöpfung und seine Auswirkung auf unsere Umwelt gleich wertvoll und wichtig. Wir bilden kritisch denkende und verantwortungsvoll handelnde Menschen mit Spezialisierung in den Bereichen Architektur, Bauingenieurwesen und Immobilien- und Infrastrukturprojektentwicklung aus. Wir fördern das Zusammenwirken der Fachgebiete. Die Expertise der jeweils anderen Fachbereiche ist am Campus Spittal nur eine Türklinke entfernt und so allen Studierenden zugänglich. Durch die enge Verknüpfung mit der Praxis entstehen laufend aktuelle Impulse für Lehre und Forschung.
Das Angebot im Studienbereich umfasst folgende Studien- und Weiterbildungslehrgänge:
Creating living space is the most original task of architecture. The emphasis is on improving the living environment through building, social responsibility and an overall sustainable way of thinking. Projects on socially relevant topics give students an attitude that contributes to the peaceful coexistence of an increasingly heterogeneous society.

The comedy town of Spittal in the Carinthian Oberland with its 16,000 inhabitants knows perfectly well how to combine living tradition with a culturally conscious present.
It is not without reason that the university town of Spittal, situated between education, culture and nature, presents itself as a true experience for body and soul. Cultural awareness, living tradition and a touch of southern serenity - these are the characteristics that make the "little historical town" so worth living in. Lake Millstätter See invites you to swim in summer, in winter the Goldeck is waiting for you to enjoy skiing. Shopping, cultivated gastronomy and cultural activities complement this perfectly. Studying in Spittal an der Drau is therefore a true experience for body, mind and soul!

The Villach region combines tradition, cosmopolitanism and quality of life with the advantages of an innovative business location. Villach, a small town with about 60,000 inhabitants, is an international high-tech location with groundbreaking cooperation between science and industry and is also increasingly developing into a start-up town.
Situated directly at the intersection of three cultures, Villach, situated on the Drava river, is an important traffic junction in the Alps-Adriatic region. This special geographical location and the beautiful landscape around Villach and in the federal state of Carinthia have made the region a popular holiday destination for generations, further beyond the borders. The drinking water quality of the lakes and the particularly clean air make Villach and its surroundings an environmental paradise.
In addition to its geographical advantages, Austria also leads the world in terms of its social and health care system and is considered a particularly safe, prosperous and liveable country.
Despite the above-average prosperity and the comprehensive state social benefits, Villach compares favourably with many international destinations. The "small town bonus" comes into its own here and makes everyday life affordable.
