What you can offer

You already possess sound know-how in construction and want to expand your knowledge with a practically oriented degree program. By doing so you want to further develop your professional skills and become qualified for management tasks. You wish to specialize in specific subjects. If you are interested in innovative construction technologies, sustainable revitalization of existing objects, complex project management and coordination tasks or infrastructure construction, then this is the right master's degree program for you.

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?

  • Complete education as an all-round civil engineer
  • Specializations in national and international large-scale projects as well as resource-efficient and sustainable construction and renovation
  • Strong network with leading companies in the construction industry


This master’s degree program will provide you with a comprehensive education as an all-round civil engineer and offers you the flexibility to select an individual specialization. The elective modules offered in the master’s degree program allow you to specialize within the program and prepare you for high-demand areas of the construction industry. We are looking primarily for professionals with expertise in managing national and international large-scale projects or in resource-efficient and sustainable construction and renovation. As a graduate, your sound technical knowledge will enable you to independently manage projects for example, as a planner, construction manager, quantity surveyor or technician. 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 companies such as STRABAG SE, PORR, ÖBB or FCB. Alone the excellent reputation the degree program enjoys in the construction industry is a useful building block for your career.


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.

Innovation approaches to building materials in the sense of "green buildings"
can be based on increasing resource efficiency and recyclability, minimizing
environmental impact, implementing social aspects or improving functional performance.
Possible solutions may be in the form of innovative materials and raw materials (e.g., biogenic plastics),
technologies (e.g. nanotechnology), construction methods (e.g. flying plants),
or processes (e.g. site waste reclamation logistics). Innovative building materials
must also meet technical requirements.
In the course innovative building materials and construction methods are introduced or

Career opportunities

As a highly trained civil engineer, a wide range of professional opportunities are open to you depending on the specializations you choose. Choosing a specialization in “Construction” and “Infrastructure Construction” will optimally prepare you for major national and international projects. In civil engineering and infrastructure construction you will assume project management responsibility in the construction of roads, railways, bridges, tunnels, landfills or in the context of hydraulic engineering projects. Choosing a specialization in “Sustainability in Civil Engineering” and “Repair and Revitalization” will pave the way for a professional future in building construction. You will expand your professional skills in the specific areas of revitalization, urban renewal, preservation of monuments and material and resource management.

  • Construction companies (building trade, construction industry)
  • Production of building materials, building materials trade
  • Developers
  • Architectural and planning offices, engineers and design offices
  • Administrative bodies in the public sector
  • Real estate related services
  • Construction departments of private clients (chain stores, insurance companies, banks)

Admission

Admission requirements

  • Bachelor degree or equivalent similar qualification in construction from an institute of higher education with a total of 180 ECTS in the subjects of civil engineering, construction management, architecture, culture and water management. In exceptional cases the program director, or in individual cases the University Council, will decide.
  • Equivalent foreign diploma

Equivalence is determined by international agreements, validation or in individual cases a decision by the head of the academic section. In specific cases the head of the program may formally recognize a qualification.

Application

A total of 50 places are available each year on the Master program in Civil Engineering and Construction Management. The ratio of places to applicants is currently around 1:1,5.

To apply you will require the following documents:

  • Birth certificate
  • Proof of citizenship
  • Proof of residence
  • Bachelor certificate
  • German level B2

Please note!

It is not possible to save incomplete online applications. You must complete your application in one session. Your application will be valid as soon as you upload all of the required documents and certificates. In the event that some documents (e.g. references) are not available at the time you apply, you may submit these later via email, mail or in person by no later than the start of the degree program.

The selection process

The selection process consists of a written test and an interview with the selection committee.

  • Goal
    The aim is to ensure places are offered to those persons who complete the multi-level selection process with the best results. The tests are designed to assess the skills needed for your chosen profession.
  • Process
    The written entrance test includes tasks in statics, structural design, reinforced concrete construction, rehabilitation engineering, project management and German. Next you will undergo a selection interview to provide a first impression of your personal aptitude. This includes professional motivation, professional understanding, performance, problem-solving skills and a capacity for careful consideration. Points are assigned to each section of the test.
  • Criteria
    The criteria for acceptance are based solely on performance. The geographical origin of the applicant has no influence on the selection decision. The admission requirements must be met in all cases. Applicants are evaluated according to the following weighting system:
    - Written selection test (75%)
    - Selection interview (25%)

The selection process will take place on May 30th and 31st, 2016.
