Civil Engineering and Construction Management

Bachelor, full-time

Overview

The construction sector is in need of all-round civil engineers with a strong practical orientation. To meet this need, the Bachelor program combines the fundamentals of civil engineering and business administration with personal development to form a comprehensive package. Our intensive exchange with companies such as FCP, ÖBB, PORR and STRABAG SE continuously increases the quality of training and at the same time makes you a sought-after employee.

What you can offer

You are fascinated by everything that has to do with construction. You are particularly interested in scientific contexts, mathematical questions, enjoy technical drawing and have a good basic understanding of business. Personally, you are structured, work well under pressure and enjoy working with others. You have an analytical mind and act in a practical and solution-oriented manner.

What we offer you

In the 20 years and more that FH Campus Wien has been running civil engineering programs, the university of applied sciences has built up a wealth of expertise and a broad network that offers you numerous possibilities during your program, when seeking an internship and when embarking on a career. This network includes construction firms such as STRABAG SE, which also cooperates with FH Campus Wien in the further education of its staff. You may, furthermore, participate in R&D projects and in developing the dialog between practice practical application at the university while making contacts for your future professional life. To give one example, the faculty, in partnership with Vienna University of Technology and Graz University of Technology, is developing a practical engineering model to determine actual shear resistance in existing reinforced concrete bridges where this appears to be too low for continued use according to current calculation models. Elsewhere we offer regular training through our series of seminars dealing with selected topics from the construction business. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

What makes this degree program special

  • Practical basic training to become an all-round civil engineer
  • Introduction to possible specializations
  • Strong network with leading companies in the construction industry

The combination of structural engineering, economics and soft skills makes this generalist degree program a practical education for all-round civil engineers. As a graduate, you are up to the demanding tasks of construction site project management and can immediately take on a role in any construction company. In addition to the content and excellent career prospects, the FH Campus Wien degree program provides numerous other advantages: You will learn in small groups and benefit from the excellent FH Campus Wien network with top companies such as STRABAG SE, PORR, ÖBB and FCB. Alone the excellent reputation the degree program enjoys in the construction industry is a useful building block for your career.


What you will learn in the degree program

Your educational background has given you a solid foundation in technology, business and personal development; you have also covered the core subjects of construction management, the construction industry, fundamentals of design, civil engineering and theory and structural engineering.

  • You will explore the general and technical fundamentals of civil engineering while acquiring the business-related and legal knowledge required by construction management and the construction industry.
  • You will thereby develop a profound knowledge of planning and construction, covering the fundamentals of design, civil engineering theory, structural engineering theory and construction methods.
  • You will also become familiar with the theoretical foundations of contract management, claim management, cost planning, scheduling and the practical application thereof; your expanded portfolio of basic tools will include business English and soft skills.
  • You will complete an eight-week internship in which you will apply the specific theoretical knowledge you have gained.

Admission procedure

The admission procedure comprises a written test and an interview with the admission committee.

  • Aim
    The aim of the admission procedure is to offer a place to those persons who complete the multi-stage admission procedure with the best results. It leads to a ranking of the applicants.
  • Procedure
    Due to changes implemented by the Federal Government with regard to the operation of the study programme, the admission procedure for the Bachelor's degree programme in Civil Engineering - Construction Management has been updated to reflect the new requirements.
    The admission is carried out in a 2-stage procedure:
    • Stage 1 - School success - 40 %
      School success is graded according to the subjects taught:
      • German: 25% (For applicants whose native language is not German, the level of the certified German language certificate will be assessed as equivalent to applicants whose native language is German)
      • Mathematics: 50%
      • English: 25%
    • Stage 2 - Admission interview by video phone call - 60 % (You will receive more details in the e-mail regarding the date, etc.)
      • 20-minute interview - this is made up of
        • Motivation
        • Qualification
        • Acquired technical knowledge
      • An official photo identification must be presented at the beginning of the conversation
  • Criteria
    The criteria leading to admission are exclusively performance-related. Geographical origin of applicants have no influence on admission. The admission requirements must be fulfilled. The final ranking of applicants is based on the following weighting:
    • Stage 1 School success - 40%
    • Stage 2 Admission interview - 60%
    The Admissions Committee, which includes the Head of Studies and the Lecturers' Association, allocates the study places based on ranking. The overall process as well as all evaluations of the admission procedure are documented in a transparent manner. Information on acceptances, waiting list places or cancellations will be provided by the end of June 2021 at the latest.

Dates

You will receive an invitation to the admissions procedure after positive examination of all relevant documents. You will receive the exact date and schedule for the admission interviews approximately one week before the date. Due to the increased amount of time required for the admission interviews, it is possible that additional admission appointments will be postponed - this depends on the number of applicants.
