Civil engineers design, plan, build and maintain our environment. This is evident in the visible and "invisible" products of their work, such as buildings, bridges, tunnels, roads, dams, sewage treatment plants, landfills, power plants, drinking water and wastewater supplies, transport networks, etc.
Civil engineers check and calculate the feasibility of architects' designs and plans and work together with them.
Civil engineering can be studied by anyone who is interested in technical and scientific processes and the solution of complex tasks.
The prerequisite is a university entrance qualification (Matura or similar). Furthermore, knowledge of descriptive geometry must be proven. If descriptive geometry was not taught as a separate subject at school, this can be made up for in the first semesters at the TU Vienna in a separate supplementary course on descriptive geometry, opens an external URL in a new window.
The study programme at TU Wien is divided into the Bachelor's programme "Civil Engineering" and the Master's programme "Civil Engineering Sciences", which builds on it. The study programme is in German.
The labour market situation is basically very good and our Master's graduates have already found a corresponding job before completing their studies.
