Description of Civil Engineering Structures

Advertisement

Civil engineering deals with construction of such facilities as buildings, bridges, tunnels, airports, railways, highways and environmental systems. Planning, design, construction/reconstruction, operation and maintenace of these facilities are genarally carried out by civil engineers. Graduates of civil engineering programmes are offered engineering and administrative posts in industry, construction, research, government and consulting companies.

Civil engineers need to be familiar with a number of disciplines in order to cope with various problems met in their profession. In the Civl Engineering curriculum at the Warsaw University of Technology tere are the following subject areas of study:

  • mathematics, physics, mechanics and chemistry, on which much of engineering knowledge is based;
  • social sciences and humanities, to broaden study perspectives as well as to prepare studensts for professional interaction with people;
  • a core of basic civil engineering subject areas, including courses in structures, surveying, transportation, materials science, management and environment;
  • integrated sets of optional and elective courses in areas selected by students.

The proposed educational programme supported by the field practices is consistent with the contemporary trends in the development of technology and fulfils needs of the building industry. The experienced professors provide a high level of courses, which contain a broad spectrum of educational content, with a large proportion of practical activities (projects, classes, laboratories).

Warsaw University of Technology, Poland

Poland The Warsaw University of Technology, so named in 1915, continues the tradition of the Preparatory School for the Institute of Technology set up in Warsaw in 1826 thanks to the efforts of Stanislaw Staszic. The University's roots also reach down to the Hipolit Wawelberg and Stanislaw Rotwand School of Machine Construction and Electrical Engineering, created in 1895. The many generations of engineers it turned out and its significant contributions to the development of technical sciences earned the Warsaw University of Technology an acclaimed position in the country as well as international renown.
