Brief introduction

Civil Engineering is an international profession that involves the construction of new buildings, as well as the improvement of existing constructions.

The bachelor programme in Civil Engineering is 4 year full-time programme taught in English, which provides you with the following skills and knowledge: design and maintenance works, geological and geotechnical studies, building methods and building materials, construction site organization, as well as the use of specific computer programs. The technical and subject-specific knowledge and understanding gained by our students provide them with enhanced career opportunities, both in Romania and abroad. In a continuously changing and globalizing world, this represents a very strong reason to choose the Civil Engineering of the Politehnica University Timisoara.

Civil engineers are indispensable specialists in a modern society. Regardless of the general economic context, Civil Engineering graduates have a well-defined place on the job market. There are many career opportunities in the public sector, with local authorities, government departments and environmental organizations, where they are often involved in setting project specifications and drafting tender documents. In the private sector, they work in the construction field, on buildings of all kinds, transport and communications infrastructure.

Civil Engineering at Politehnica University Timisoara

This study programme was founded in 1991 as a natural consequence of the extensive use of the English language at international level and especially in higher education, science and research. From the very beginning, a modern curriculum was implemented, compatible with the civil engineering educational programmes of other major universities with which Politehnica University Timisoara collaborated in research since 1990 (i.e. The Universities of Edinburgh, Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield in the U.K., The University of Liege in Belgium, E.N.S. Cachan and INSA-Rennes in France, The University Federico II of Naples in Italy, Technical University of Athens in Greece, etc.). Up to now, over 500 English speaking graduates in Civil Engineering have been supplied to the Romanian and European construction market companies, consultancy and design offices as well as subsequent commercial activity.

Politehnica University Timisoara has been ranked as a university of advanced research and education, a title awarded to the top Romanian universities. The study programmes in civil engineering offered by UPT have been classified as A-level study programmes as well.
