Bachelor's Programme Civil Engineering

TU Wien attempts to support prospective students in their decision making phase for their studies, while ensuring the high and internationally recognized quality of their studies and teaching.

As of the winter semester 2019/20, there will be either admission or selection procedures (for bachelor's programmes with limited places) for all bachelor's programmes at TU Wien or a study preparation and reflection phase (PRe phase) for bachelor's programmes without place restrictions.

Details on the PRe phase can be found here, opens an external URL in a new window.

The bachelor’s programme lasts 6 semesters (180 ECTS credits). You acquire sound methodical, scientific and engineering knowledge. Particular importance is given to the foundational and core subject areas. You develop your analytical and interdisciplinary thinking and spatial awareness as well as abstraction and modelling skills. You receive a comprehensive overview of the varied fields of work related to civil engineering, from structural engineering, building construction and geotechnics to infrastructure management, including road and railway construction, resource management and water construction. You obtain skills and competences that enable you to recognise and assess the interaction between technical developments and the environment.

General information

You will get a comprehensive overview and insight into all areas of civil engineering: from structural engineering, construction industry and geotechnics to infrastructure management, with road and railroad engineering, resource management and hydraulic engineering.

Sound methodological as well as natural and engineering science knowledge is imparted. Great importance is attached to basic subjects such as mathematics, mechanics, structural analysis, engineering hydrology, construction industry and construction project management.

Analytical and interdisciplinary thinking will be trained. You will acquire skills and competencies to recognize and assess the interaction between technical developments and the environment. Semesters abroad are possible during the study program.

Interest in technical-scientific processes and the solution of complex tasks, pleasure and willingness to work together with other planners as well as to work by yourself. For enrollment (admission) you need proof of eligibility to study.

The study-VoR-Phase serves to discuss the choice of study and it is not a selection method. It is divided into two parts, which must be completed online before the admission:

» Online survey on the choice of study: It serves the purpose of self-assessment, reflection on the choice of study program as well as for deepening the requirements and general conditions of the study program.

» Feedback on the level of knowledge: This is intended to test the necessary basic mathematical knowledge. It serves to determine the current level of knowledge.

As a graduate, there are development opportunities open to you in many different areas. You can expect a varied world of work, characterised by interdisciplinary cooperation. As a civil engineer, you design our technical environment, plan construction projects and infrastructures and play a crucial role in their implementation, maintenance and disposal.

You plan and implement measures for sustainability, protecting the environment and preventing disasters. Your professional life could be spent in engineering companies, construction companies, the building materials industry, the public sector and in universities and other research institutions.

It is possible to participate in exchange programmes as part of the course. A wide range of different places at partner universities are available to you for this purpose.
