Sustainable Building Engineering

The graduate obtains the degree of an Engineer.

During studies, the student acquires both theoretical knowledge and practical skills (three programs of internship, including pre-graduate internship in a construction company) in sustainable building engineering with a reference to 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 etc., energy certification, architecture and city planning and other additional subjects. The graduate will be capable of solving complex problems in civil engineering, with the practical application of computer-aided design, including BIM (building information modeling) technology.

In Poland and UE, 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. To meet the requirements of the European Union, we want to give all interested candidates the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge in the field of sustainable construction.
