Study program taught in English 

Civil Engineering

Graduates in this Bachelor's level program study and learn in the English language. Graduates acquire a complete first-degree university education with a specialization in civil engineering that covers a broad spectrum of construction professions with a focus on the theoretical and practical aspects of the construction of buildings and engineering and hydraulic structures. Graduates understand the basic theoretical principles and procedures for the construction of various types of buildings.  Graduates have knowledge of construction materials. The core of the specialized subjects relate to issues concerning civil engineering structures. Graduates are able to design simple structures and present their own solutions for technological and economic problems related to the construction of various kinds of structures. Graduates are prepared for second-degree programs of study or to enter the labour market. There is an opportunity for students to improve their communication skills for the domestic environment through classes in the Slovak language during their first year.

Bachelor´s Degree Study Program

Geodesy and Cartography

The specialized profile of a graduate from this Bachelor's studies program is developed through 6 semesters of study. Graduates acquire a complete first-degree university education, progressing through subjects which build a theoretical, specialized technological and applied foundation. The theoretical foundation of the graduates is developed through studies of the natural sciences - mathematics, physics and geology - followed by specialized theoretical disciplines - surveying, mathematical geodesy, the measurement process and analysis, spherical astronomy and cosmic and physical geodesy. The program is also focused on mastering technological and applied disciplines, including local geodesic systems, engineering geodesy, photogrammetry, geoinformatics, topography, cartographic design and reproduction, land consolidation, cadastral mapping and cadastre of real estate. The graduates' profiles are completed by subjects such as transportation construction, hydraulic engineering and the humanities - the history of construction, surveying and law. Graduates can find employment in all fields of geodesy, cartography and cadastre of real estate in government agencies and development organizations, state administration authorities and in private sector. The graduates are also prepared for further studies in geodesy and cartography.

Building Structures and Architecture

Graduates of this program of study acquire a complete first-degree university education in the field of building structures, which is focused on the preparation and implementation of architectural construction. Graduates acquire and understand the theoretical foundations of the physical and natural sciences as well as the humanities and scientific economic disciplines. This general format is followed by instruction in the engineering sciences which are the foundation of applied scientific disciplines in architecture, the design and implementation of building structures, engineering and environmental projects.

An important part of the instruction is the development of a student's creativity and skills, the use of computing technology, the acquisition of a world foreign language and physical fitness.  The graduates are prepared for second degree programs of study specializing in building structures, architecture and urbanism or structural engineering and transportation engineering. They can also enter the labour market.

Graduates can be employed as members of creative teams, independent workers for construction contractors, and managers of architectural projects.  They can also work for building contractor organizations that are involved in building systems and constructing buildings and also in the fields of construction-related environmental protection. Other employment opportunities can be found in state administration and regional development, within the educational system and in the management of operations and maintenance of buildings and the like.

Structural and Transportation Engineering

The graduates of this specialization acquire basic knowledge in the field of the design and implementation of structural and transportation engineering projects. They are guided in the creative development of basic theoretical knowledge, structural principles and comprehensive mastering of organizational and technological tasks, while respecting the principles of reliability.  Emphasis is laid on independent thinking and an ability to adjust to new information and the dynamic development of technologies. The graduates become aware of the social, moral, legal and economic responsibilities of their profession and are able to use suitable practices in accordance with professional, ethical and legal frameworks. Graduates are prepared for second-degree study programs or to enter the labour market. Graduates who choose to work after graduation from their first-degree studies can find employment in many professions in the building industry, for example, in the design and implementation of bearing engineering structures, implementation of transportation and water structures and selected civil engineering jobs.  Graduates can also be employed by state administration and self-government authorities, environmental authorities and organizations managing structural engineering works and transportation structures. They can also conduct business as licensed entrepreneurs.
