Brno University of Technology - Faculty of Civil Engineering

PhD (Doctoral’s) Study Programme Civil Engineering

Taught in English

Educational and Professional Goals


The goal of the doctoral study programme is to provide students with a specialised university education of the highest level in certain fields of civil engineering. The education obtained within this study programme also comprises a training and attestation for scientific work.

PhD study within the framework of the Civil Engineering study program consists of five study branches:

  • Constructions and Traffic Structures
  • Building Structures
  • Physical and Building Materials Engineering
  • Civil Engineering Management
  • Water Management and Water Structures

The Constructions and Traffic Structures study branch is focused on scientific training, methodology of research work and research development in the fields of structural theory, reliability and failure mechanism of structures.

The Building Structures study branch is divided into four topics: 

  • Building Structure, 
  • Architecture in Building Structure, 
  • Technology and Building Process Control and 
  • Building Services.

The Physical and Building Materials Engineering study branch is focused on complex scientific training, methods of individual scientific work and knowledge development in the field of Building Materials Theory.

The Civil Engineering Management study branch is focused on the scientific training, the methodology of the scientific work, the development of knowledge in the area of real investments, project management, space economics, value analysis in construction, quality management, marketing management and risk management.

The Water Management and Water Structures study branch is focused on complex scientific training, methodology of independent research work and development of knowledge in this area of water management theory.


Admission Requirements and Access to Further Studies


The student must have finished a relevant field of technical science Master of Science (MSc) study programme. The admission procedure consists of three parts:

  • evaluation of study results from previous studies,
  • verification of English knowledge,
  • a discussion on a topic related to the subject of PhD study programme.


Required Practice


A practice is not required.


Conditions Required 


The requirements that the doctoral students have to fulfil are given by their individual study plans, which specify the courses that they have to complete, their presupposed study visits and active participation at scientific conferences, and their minimum pedagogical activities within the Bachelor‘s and Master‘s Study Programmes of the Faculty.

A successful completion of the doctoral studies is conditional on the following:

  • The student has to pass a doctoral state examination
  • The student has further to prepare and defend his dissertation thesis

Final Examination
