Master course, part-time
Our basic courses in civil engineering and architecture cover only the essentials of building services engineering. The development of environmental technologies is making automated building services one of the most innovative fields of the construction sector, and one that is inextricably linked to demands for energy efficiency and environmentally responsible construction. You will therefore learn to plan and implement heating, ventilation, climate control and electrical components as an integrated system according to low energy and passive house standards.

When it comes to civil engineering, you know the ropes. With a special interest in the latest technological developments, you stay abreast of the academic debate. Your own environmental awareness motivates you to adopt sustainable approaches, while your understanding of economics enables to you recognise what is actually feasible. You regard components as parts of an overall system rather than individual parts. In weighing up the various options, your thought process is linked-up and solution-focused.
In the 15 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 both during your program and in your subsequent professional life. This network includes construction firms such as STRABAG SE, which cooperates with FH Campus Wien in the further education of its staff and other areas. The final milestone on the educational pathway is the start of the Green Building architecture program. Students in the master's program benefit from this because modern building services need interfaces with civil engineering and architecture, and we provide these in-house. Aside from interdisciplinary theory, practical relevance is our top priority. During the program you will work on an interdisciplinary building equipment project, planning a complex system of building equipment for a commercial or a residential structure. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.
Aside from the study of low energy and passive house standards, it is the emphasis on taking the whole system into consideration from initial planning stage to interdisciplinary interface that makes this program special. Keeping up with scientific trends and developments in environmental technologies will be part of your portfolio in future. You will have achieved your goal only when a system's entire cycle - from production to application - delivers positive energy performance: at that point, a building is operating sustainably and self-sufficiently.
In this master's program you will learn how to plan and operate building equipment facilities as an integrated system.

Number of teaching weeks8 per semester
TimesThurs 5.30 p.m.-9.30 p.m., Fri 9.00 a.m.-4.00 p.m. or 3.00 p.m.-9.30 p.m., Sat 8.00 a.m.- 1.30 p.m.
Low energy and passive house construction are established as standard methods in residential building while rapidly gaining ground in the area of office construction. For offices that plan building services, the market is expanding rapidly. Building services experts are in demand from facility management firms, building equipment specialists, the building trade and the construction industry; there are also openings in architecture and planning offices. As a professional, you are an expert in heating, ventilation, cooling, sanitary and electrical systems in conjunction with control engineering: an ability that cannot be taken for granted. You will also be the central contact person on energy, engineering and convenience projects and engage in specialist work. As an all-rounder, you are active in development; as a specialist, you deliver quality assurance in parallel during implementation and operation. Planners, operators and specialists with this level of know-how are in short supply and enjoy excellent career prospects.
As a site manager or local construction supervision officer, you accept a share of the responsibility when building equipment is installed. In a civil engineering company you will plan the development of these systems; in an architect's office you deploy them. Your duties will also include overseeing the smooth operation of building equipment. You will work in any of the following areas:
One-time payment € 13,383
Payable 4 weeks before start of the first semester.
Semester fee € 4,599 (total amount € 13,797)
Payable around 4 weeks before start of each semester.
Financial aid is available for academic courses, master courses and for courses and seminars.
