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. 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.

What you can offer

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.

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

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.


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.

The admission interviews take place as video phone calls, please do not come to the FH. The dates are assigned and are not freely selectable.

  • Wednesday, 21st April 2021
