Civil engineering deals with construction of such facilities as buildings, bridges, tunnels, airports, railways, highways and environmental systems. Planning, design, construction/reconstruction, operation and maintenace of these facilities are genarally carried out by civil engineers. Graduates of civil engineering programmes are offered engineering and administrative posts in industry, construction, research, government and consulting companies.
Civil engineers need to be familiar with a number of disciplines in order to cope with various problems met in their profession. In the Civl Engineering curriculum at the Warsaw University of Technology tere are the following subject areas of study:
- mathematics, physics, mechanics and chemistry, on which much of engineering knowledge is based;
- social sciences and humanities, to broaden study perspectives as well as to prepare studensts for professional interaction with people;
- a core of basic civil engineering subject areas, including courses in structures, surveying, transportation, materials science, management and environment;
- integrated sets of optional and elective courses in areas selected by students.
The proposed educational programme supported by the field practices is consistent with the contemporary trends in the development of technology and fulfils needs of the building industry. The experienced professors provide a high level of courses, which contain a broad spectrum of educational content, with a large proportion of practical activities (projects, classes, laboratories).
Civil EngineeringStructures (CES)
The programme focuses on structural design of various types of engineering as well as industrial buildings and structures. CES curriculum includes the design of metal, concrete, wood and masonry structures. It also covers the repairing and rebuilding of buildings and structures, computer-aided design, construction works, typical project management and architectural design of simple buildings.
