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 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 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. 'Start Your Career' gives you the chance to take part in a wide-ranging mentoring program; partner companies include STRABAG SE, FCP Fritsch, Chiari & Partner ZT Gmbh and ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG. The program also gives you the opportunity to get involved in R&D projects, thus influencing the balance between academic study and 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.

  • Over five semesters 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.
  • Over the fourth (full-time) and fifth (part-time) semesters, you will complete an eight-week internship in which you will apply the specific theoretical knowledge you have gained.
  • In semester six you will specialize by choosing between the following modules:

    • Construction and completion of large-scale international projects: In this module you will learn the fundamentals of planning and implementing major international projects. You will also study contract and claim management and deal with the documentation of projects.
    • Sustainability in civil engineering: You will expand your knowledge in the field of renovations and modernization as well as structural engineering theory. Besides the basics of preserving national monuments and buildings, you will examine questions of building and landscape ecology, bioengineering, alternative energy sources and the legal framework.

How you benefit

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. Many avenues will be open to you in public-sector and related organizations such as building authorities and public transport companies (ÖBB, ASFINAG, Wiener Linien, etc.).

Your future career

With skills that include the planning and processing of construction projects, you are likely to establish your career in one of the following sectors:

  • Contractors in the building trade or construction industry
  • Specialists in the production/trade in building materials
  • Property developers
  • Architecture and planning offices
  • Engineering and design offices
  • Public administration bodies
  • Real estate services
  • Construction departments of private clients (chain stores, insurance companies, banks)
