theory and construction of engineering structures in the field of civil engineering

Graduates are highly qualified experts in the study programme Theory and Construction of Engineering Structures with a main focus on the theory of design and analysis of engineering structures, transport and civil engineering structures and their components. They are able to creatively apply the principles of scientific research, propose new approaches and improve the existing methods of the theory of engineering structures. They master the progressive tools of design theory and technology of construction of engineering structures, as well as the methodology of their diagnostics and rehabilitation. The theoretical knowledge acquired in the course of the study can be applied in the experimental analysis of the behaviour of engineering structures and in their combination with model solutions and results of numerical simulations. Graduates of the doctoral degree study will find employment especially in research institutions, science parks, research centres as an independent or leading researchers, at universities in the development of science of engineering structures and transport structures or in corporate research and development. They are also employable in top managerial positions and in project teams of different nature. They can also work in investor organisations, construction companies, consulting and advisory companies. The content and structure of the study programme follows the study programmes of master´s (engineering) degree study at the Faculty of Civil Engineering UNIZA in the field of study Civil Engineering Structures. These correspond to the structure and scope of the subjects required by the Slovak Chamber of Civil Engineers to acquire a professional qualification to perform the position of an authorized (chartered) civil engineer. By completing the study programme and earning the third degree of higher education, graduates obtained a sufficient basis on which they can apply for the relevant authorization after completing appropriate practice.

Graduates of the doctoral degree study are highly qualified experts in the study programme Theory and Construction of Building Structures with the main focus on the theory of design of architectural structures of buildings and their components with theoretically justified creation of progressive building envelopes and their details in accordance with world development trends. Graduates of the study programme, based on the acquired theoretical engineering knowledge, understood principles and mastered methods of the field are able to clearly formulate the scientific problem, subject and objective of research and development in the field of technology of architecture. They master scientific methods of research and development of architectural structures of buildings, technology and climate of built–architectural environment of buildings and their production-technological processes in conditions of economic efficiency. They are able to clearly formulate the contribution of research outputs to the development of science in the field of study and to the construction-architectural practice and are capable of independent scientific work. Graduates of the study programme acquired extended knowledge of mathematics and building physics. They deepened the already acquired knowledge in the field of the theory of preparation, design, construction and reconstruction of building structures. They expanded their knowledge in the field of the diagnostics and pathology of buildings, evaluation of energy performance of buildings, strategy for the restoration of buildings, as well as in the field of intelligent building technology and environmental science. The level of knowledge ensures their ability to solve problems of management of buildings on a scientific basis. They can scientifically analyse problems and bring their own solutions in the field of their qualification. Graduates of doctoral degree study are employable mainly in research institutions, science parks, research centres as an independent or senior researchers at universities, in the development of science and technology in architecture or in corporate research and development. They are also employable in top management positions, in project teams of different nature. They are qualified to work in investor organisations, construction companies and in consulting and advisory companies.
