Master's Degree Programme Civil Engineering – Infrastructure

In the master's programme Civil Engineering – Infrastructure at TU Graz, you deepen the knowledge you gained in the bachelor's programme. You learn about the infrastructure of roads, railways and public water and wastewater disposal systems. You observe the infrastructure throughout its entire life cycle: design, construction, operation and evaluation. You develop interdisciplinary problem-solving skills and also familiarize yourself with the environmental, economic and social aspects of civil engineering.


Compulsory Subject

The compulsory subject "Infrastructure Planning and Construction Methods" includes the following lectures:

  • Sustainable infrastructure
  • Networks and Modeling
  • Traffic Planning
  • Railway Construction and Maintenance
  • Public Water Systems

Elective Subjects

You will complete 2 elective subjects:

  • Applications in Infrastructure
  • the complementary subject Civil Engineering

For each of the elective subjects, you select courses from the 2 catalogues of electives to emphasize a particular topic.

For details about the catalogues of electives, please see the curriculum (in German).

Martin Wakolbinger, bachelor's degree student in Civil Engineering, Environment and Transportation (as of 1 October 2016 "Civil Engineering – Infrastructure")

In my degree programme, knowledge transfer is combined with encouraging joined-up thinking. The focus does not lie on standards-based solutions in traditional construction, but on models, simulations and innovations in transportation. Students are taught forward planning, a future-focussed mind-set and an awareness of connections between the economy and environmental policies as well as an understanding of historical developments and current problems. I can recommend my degree programme to anyone who enjoyed courses focussing on infrastructure during their bachelor's programme in civil engineering and likes considering what mobility will be like in the future.
