Bachelor's Degree Programme Civil Engineering and Construction Management

How do you construct buildings? How do you protect buildings from damp? What sort of construction materials are needed to build a street? Civil engineers have the answers. They design structures such as buildings, bridges, power stations, streets and railways. They construct, run and maintain such facilities and are responsible for ensuring that building materials are recycled. In the bachelor's programme Civil Engineering and Construction Management at TU Graz, you learn the fundamentals of civil engineering.


      The fundamentals of mathematics, natural science and engineering:

  • Mathematics and descriptive geometry
  • Physics and mechanics
  • Computer science
  • Surveying

 The fundamentals of civil engineering:

  • Construction analysis: structural design
  • Geotechnical engineering: soil mechanics, rock mechanics, rock construction, technical geology
  • Structural engineering: building physics and material applications
  • Environment and traffic: traffic and sanitary engineering
  • Construction industry: legal basics
  • Fundamentals of structural engineering: thermal insulation and moisture proofing, noise insulation
  • Hydraulic engineering: currents and their numerical simulation, dams, embankments

Specialisation Subjects

Students choose between the specialisations of Construction or Economics.

Benedict Oguah, bachelor's degree student in Civil Engineering and Construction Management

I study civil engineering because sewage disposal, good roads and railway networks benefit people directly, especially in less well-developed areas.

Even when I was still at school, I already knew that I wanted to study civil engineering. I’m particularly interested in the construction of infrastructure – that is, road construction, transportation systems, residential wastewater management and sewage disposal – because I feel that I really can help people.

Career Options

Graduates of the bachelor's programme Civil Engineering and Construction Management are highly qualified for master’s programmes in civil engineering.

Civil engineers undertake calculations, determine the construction of a building and plan and oversee its construction.

Graduates work

  • in engineering offices
  • at public authorities,
  • at consulting firms,
  • in industry,
  • in construction,
  • for the railway,
  • in highway construction,
  • in energy management
  • in research and teaching at universities,
  • in development aid.
