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. You will also specialize in the processing of large-scale projects or sustainability, areas linked to new technologies and processes. Construction management is particularly complex on large-scale projects in fields such as civil engineering and infrastructure building.

You want to create and shape something new, something tangible and substantial - something that society genuinely needs. More specifically, you are interested in mathematics, planning and design, and you have a sound understanding of business. You are analytical as well as practical with the ability to stay abreast of an expanding web of complex interrelationships. You are flexible and results-focused. You display good timing when contributing to successful projects as part of a team.
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.
Even where order backlogs are large and winters are mild, the construction industry faces cost and deadline pressure in the face of rising staff and raw material costs. As this ramps up the demands on design planning and construction management, expertise in civil engineering and business administration is called for. It is the combination of engineering and business acumen that makes this all-round program so special. One major advantage for graduates of the program lies in the fact that you will focus on processes from the start of your career; the practical focus of the course will enable you to contribute value to your company after a brief induction. With your depth of know-how in contract management, claim management, cost planning and scheduling, you will be ideally placed to cope with complex tasks. You may specialize in the construction and completion of large-scale international projects or sustainability, acquiring knowledge of new technologies and processes as appropriate.
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.

ElectivesSelection and participation according to available places. There may be separate selection procedures.
You will be qualified to work in many areas. As a well qualified all-rounder, you will be responsible for planning and processing construction projects. You may find yourself drafting projects in a planning office or realizing projects operationally (as a site manager, for example). You may work for the principal or the agent. The construction industry incorporates technical and engineering offices as well as the construction materials trade. You will also be in demand by big business such as chain stores, which maintain their own construction offices to handle the building needs of their branches.
