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

FH Campus Wien has more than fifteen years of experience running civil engineering degree programs and today has extensive expertise and a large network at its disposal that will provide you with a wide range of opportunities during your studies and in the course of your professional career. This network includes leading contractors such as STRABAG SE, which cooperate with FH Campus Wien not only in the context of training for their employees. In addition to excellent contacts in the construction industry, during your studies you will have the opportunity to work in R&D projects and thus shape the dialogue between practice and science at FH Campus Wien. For example, on behalf of ASFINAG we are currently examining the advantages and disadvantages of different organizational structures in intermodal transport networks. This project is being conducted as part of the PIARC, the World Road Association. Practical orientation is a top priority in the teaching. In addition, we regularly invite you to further your education in the seminar series "Selected Chapters from Construction Practice". Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lectures, public lecture evenings with prominent experts, that FH Campus Wien regularly invites you to join.

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. The excellent reputation the degree program enjoys in the construction industry is a useful building block for your career already.


What you will learn in the degree program

The master's degree program offers you the opportunity to acquire comprehensive experience as an all-round civil engineer. You will expand your engineering, construction and legal foundations. Furthermore, you will also have the chance to select an individual specialization.

In the second and third semesters you will be able to decide on a total of two of the four specializations in "Construction", "Repair and Revitalization", "Infrastructure Construction" and "Sustainability in Civil Engineering". Your personality plays an important role at work, so you will also further develop your soft skills.

  • Aim
    The aim of the admissions procedure is to offer a place to those persons who complete the multi-stage admissions procedure with the best results. It leads to a ranking of the applicants.
  • Process
    Due to changes implemented by the Federal Government with regard to the operation of the study programme, the admission procedure for the Master's programme in Civil Engineering and Construction Management has been updated to reflect the new requirements. The admission procedure is carried out in a 2-stage procedure:
    • Level 1 - Success in a relevant Bachelor's programme - 40%
      • Presentation of the academic success of the 1st to 5th semester of relevant Bachelor's studies (e.g. Transcript of Records, proof of academic success, etc. - please note that this is only up to the 5th semester)
      • The calculated grade point average must be indicated if it is not stated in the document! (Please use only the submitted document for the grade point average)
      • Calculation formula: Sum of grades / number of courses = grade point average (specify two decimalplaces)
    • Level 2 - Admission conversation via video call - 60% (You will receive concrete details with by e-mail regarding the date, etc.)
      • 20-minute conversation consisting of:
      • motivation
      • qualification
      • relevant knowledge and experience

An official photo ID 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:
     
    • Level 1 Success in studies - 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 the 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.

You will receive an invitation to the admissions procedure after positive examination of all relevant documents.
