Ideas into practice.

Building is a service to society, to people. Anyone who wants to successfully implement construction projects today and tomorrow must have more than just specialist technical knowledge. Economic, organisational and legal knowledge is also indispensable. The master's degree program in civil engineering provides the necessary skills for management tasks in the planning or implementation of important construction projects.

MASTERING COMPLEX CHALLENGES

Competitive and time and cost pressures are increasing inexorably, skilled personnel are becoming a bottleneck, and new materials, processes and technologies bring challenges and opportunities. Together with ever more important ecological requirements, all these factors make building increasingly complex. Civil engineers have the task of successfully surviving in this demanding environment - this is facilitated by a practical and strongly project-based education, which also prepares for a successful cooperation between client and contractor.

Das Masterstudium baut auf der Grundlage eines einschlägigen Bachelorstudiums im Bereich „Bauingenieurwesen“ auf, der Masterstudiengang steht aber auch EinsteigerInnen aus fachverwandten Bachelorabschlüssen offen. Für sie werden gesonderte Anrechnungs- bzw. Überstiegsmodelle erstellt und angeboten.

Die Studierenden treffen eine grundsätzliche Wahl zwischen einer der beiden Vertiefungsrichtungen „Entwurf und Konstruktion“ und „Projektmanagement“. Darüber hinaus können Studierende bereits vom ersten bis zum 3 Semester über die Auswahl von angebotenen Wahlpflichtfächern weiteren Einfluss auf die Ausgestaltung ihres Curriculums nehmen. Allen Studierenden gemeinsam ist die abschließende Diplomarbeit – sie wird im vierten Semester als Abschluss des Masterstudiums verfasst.

The construction laboratory  of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences is located in the Science & Energy Labs in the Villach Technology Park and is represented at this location on a project-related basis by up to ten employees from the Civil Engineering & Architecture Department. Among others, the departments of structural engineering, building material technology and building physics are located here.

Students of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences are also offered the opportunity to work on their Bachelor's or Master's theses in the laboratory and to participate in a wide range of research topics, such as the subsequent reinforcement of existing bridge structures or the material development of high-strength and ultra-high-strength materials. In addition, the construction laboratory offers innovative services in the field of component and material testing.

Curriculum

Profile

The master's program "Civil Engineering" is aimed at graduates of a relevant bachelor's program as well as at beginners from related bachelor's programs. The aim of the course is to prepare students to take on leadership responsibilities in the construction industry. Depending on the area of specialisation, students are increasingly taught advanced economic and organisational skills or constructive and construction culture skills. The course design is characterised by a high degree of practical relevance and aims at a quick career entry. Students can choose between two specialisation options:

The specialisation in design and construction deals with design and modelling as well as with the calculation and planning of load-bearing structures in structural and infrastructure engineering. The inclusion of the design in the education is the basis of the engineer's (structural engineer) participation in the design process of the structures.
The specialisation Project Management focuses on the construction and organisational aspects of civil engineering. Here, management skills are taught that are closely linked to the fields of law, economics and construction operations. An important supplement is the teaching of social skills such as leadership responsibility and employee management.
The essential contact to the economy is particularly promoted through cooperative project work in the 3rd semester. Here students have the opportunity to work on their assignments in and with a cooperating company for a period of at least 5 weeks. For those who want to devote themselves to research topics instead, the construction laboratory is open to them: Scientific questions can be dealt with there, also within cooperative research projects, with professional support. Further offers to students include participation in conferences, symposia and external specialist lectures - the course encourages students to independently establish a network of specialist experts during their studies.

What students should bring to their studies:

  • Engineering skills: The ability to apply theoretical knowledge to concrete engineering tasks
  • Problem-solving skills: the ability to analyse and evaluate problems in an interdisciplinary way by applying one's understanding of economic and social interrelations
  • Social skills: The ability to work well with a team or in a team and to assess the impact of one's own actions.

After successful completion of their studies, graduates have the following skills and knowledge:

  • Depending on the chosen specialisation, they have broad competence in the fields of building construction or building technology and construction management and can apply this effectively in practice. They are aware of the importance of sustainable thinking and acting.
  • They are able to communicate professionally and to enter into dialogue with all important participants in the construction process.
  • They are able to independently analyse problems in their areas of responsibility, to solve them with suitable methods and thus to participate in the successful implementation of construction projects.
  • They work smoothly with representatives from other professions and specialist areas, both on their own responsibility and as part or in the management of a team.
  • You are in active exchange with the scientific community of civil engineers.

Job & Career

As a graduate engineer in the field of civil engineering, you will find your place in management positions in small companies as well as in industrial groups, mostly at home but often abroad, from the structural engineering office to large construction sites.

Construction planning, construction execution or construction control are the superordinate fields of activity. By passing a subsequent civil engineer or master builder examination you will also acquire the authority to independently manage planning and construction companies.

The possibility of taking up doctoral studies at a technical university in Germany or abroad as a graduate of the master's degree program also opens up academic careers for you.

The fields of activity of civil engineers include planning, construction execution or construction control. Graduates can acquire the authority to independently manage planning and construction companies by taking a civil engineer or master builder examination. There is also the possibility of building on the Master's degree in civil engineering with a doctorate.

  • Design and construction
  • Structural design and statics
  • Construction industry and management
  • Construction and project management
  • Construction and project control
  • Construction site coordination - Project development
  • research and development

FEANI is the Federation of European National Engineering Associations. Its Austrian representative is the Austrian Association of Engineers and Architects (ÖIAV).

The civil engineering degree programs of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences are listed in the FEANI Index and thus provide the necessary basis for an application for the title of a European Engineer (EUR ING).

The FEANI member associations are authorised to award the EUR ING as proof of professional qualifications in the field of engineering across European borders. Especially for professional activities outside of Europe, the EUR ING brings important advantages in the recognition of professional status.

The prerequisite for obtaining the EUR ING is the proven combination of theory and practice through training and professional experience. The quality of EUR ING certification is ensured by a three-stage examination procedure of submitted skills and experience.

Requirements:

  • At least 3 years of study of an engineering science (INDEX-.study course* or recognised equivalent)
  • At least 2 years experience in engineering professions
  • At least 7 years cumulative experience as an engineer through studies and work

The successful completion of the Master's degree program in Civil Engineering subsequently entitles the holder to pursue a doctoral program in accordance with § 6 FHStG (4). 

Of course, graduates of the master's degree program in civil engineering can also go into self-employment after passing the civil engineer or master builder exam.

Spittal an der Drau stands out

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!

Villach

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.
