The cornerstone of the degree programme is on professional practical training combined with a focus on systems understanding. We view ourselves as a link between basic scientific research, technical application, and professional practice. In the master’s degree programme, state-of-the-art knowledge is taught in mandatory courses and electives. Guest speakers are integrated into classes in order to maintain a close link to professional practice and provide an excellent preparation for the professional environment. The high quality of the courses is emphasized by the attendance of many students from other departments and universities.
Implemented into the german curriculum of civil engineering on Vienna University of Technology there are only few courses offered in english. Lectures within external postgraduate courses (e.g. IPGL, ETIA) are held in english.
