Description

Civil engineering is an international profession that involves the design, construction, operation and improvement of the built environment. Civil engineers provide the technical expertise and management skills to plan, design, construct and maintain such facilities as buildings, bridges, water supply systems, waste treatment systems, road and rail networks, air and sea ports in a sustainable manner to reduce the impact on the environment.
The Bachelor Programme of Civil Engineering at VIA provides you with skills and knowledge needed to manage structural calculations, drawings, soil mechanics, road design and calculations, etc. The flexibility of the programme and the variety of electives allow you to create the degree that will prepare you for the career you want.

Career Opportunities
