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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
