Learning outcomes:

The qualification holder will be able to:

(general competences)

  • plan and implement construction works with regard to adequate quality and price and carry out independent technical evaluations on the basis of scientific analysis and synthesis,
  • undertake creative work in a team of construction planners and construction contractors,
  • integrate the basics of engineering economics and environmental protection issues with issues of planning structures and construction products,
  • show greater creativity and innovation as the result of interdisciplinary study,
  • apply knowledge in practice,
  • analyse, synthesise and anticipate solutions and consequences,
  • master the basics of research methods, procedures and processes, develop critical and self-critical assessment,
  • develop communication skills and abilities, including communication in the international environment,
  • demonstrate a capacity for ethical reflection and a commitment to professional ethics,
  • show cooperativeness and work in a group, in both interdisciplinary and international environments,

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate mastery of knowledge from the field of planning, organisation, management and leadership of construction works and construction manufacturing, construction informatics, ecology, urban planning and environmental policy,
  • demonstrate familiarity with and understanding of the foundations and historical development of construction science (subject: "Introduction to construction"),
  • communicate within an organisation and outside it with partners and customers (subjects: "Ethics and engineering", "Organisation of construction"),
  • resolve individual (less complex) work problems through the application of scientific methods and procedures,
  • autonomously determine the dimensions of construction elements, but not connect them into wholes (buildings), and are therefore not yet able to plan complete buildings,
  • autonomously and creatively perform specific (less complex) tasks in the field of civil engineering, perform individual more complex tasks within a group and assist in the management of existing technological procedures within the activities described in the first indent and update them,
  • demonstrate coherent mastery of basic knowledge (natural sciences, mathematics, informatics, mechanics, construction materials), integrate knowledge from various fields and apply it;
  • use information and communication technologies and systems in their fundamental and basic professional field,
  • place new information and interpretations in the context of the fundamental discipline,
  • demonstrate understanding of the basic structure of the fundamental discipline and the links between its sub-disciplines,
  • develop skills in the application of knowledge in a specific professional field.

Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10). 


Students may enrol in a higher year if by the end of the academic year they have met all enrolment requirements defined by the study programme.
