B.Sc. Sustainable Building Engineering


Program Description

B.Sc. program in Sustainable Building Engineering (Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering ), duration: 3,5 years (7 semesters), 210 ECTS points

During studies, students acquire both, theoretical knowledge and practical skills (three programs of internship, including a pregraduate internship in a construction company) in sustainable building engineering with a reference to the strength of materials, structural analysis, geomechanics, building technology, enterprise management, steel structures, concrete structures, timber structures, technical equipment of the building HVAC, water supply, sewage utilization, energy certification, architecture and city planning.

The graduate will be capable of solving complex problems in civil engineering, with a practical application of computer-aided design, including BIM (building information modeling) technology.

In Poland and the EU, sustainable construction is a new social need. It is considered in the following aspects: ecological, economic, and socio-cultural, taking into account knowledge in the field of construction, environmental engineering, and architecture. The objective of the program is to give all interested candidates the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge in the field of sustainable construction.
