The Department of Building Constructions provides and guarantees teaching in two study programmes: Architecture and Construction, and Civil Engineering. The Bachelor programme focuses primarily on Architecture and Construction, Preparation and Realization of Construction Works, and the Building Environment. The Master programme focuses primarily on Realization of Constructions, and Building Environment. We also offer a Doctoral programme in Theory of Structures.
The department prepares professionals for the construction of civic and industrial building, project and building commercial companies, and those with a Doctoral degree, also in research and development.
Besides teaching, the department is systematically developing a science research base, is participating in a number of domestic and foreign projects within the European Union, has a Consultancy Centre for the modernisation and reconstruction of the prefabricated-concrete residential blocks housing fund, and it plays an active role in the scientific activities of the Forensic Institute within the Faculty of Civil Engineering of VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava.
The department also covers the design and implementation of building projects that were built on an undermined land, and take into account their condition. Other issues of interest are the energy efficiency of industrial buildings, damp problems, and the management of maintenance of such buildings. It also provides expert activities, including thermo cameras and a blower door test.
The department works closely with the building industry, in both teaching, and research and innovation.
