Faculty of Civil Engineering

The first successful attempts at teaching Civil Engineering took place in the years 1962 – 1966, when the Evening Courses of Civil Engineering were opened at the Faculty of Machine Construction in cooperation with the Silesian University of Technology. From 1972 to 1976 students were educated on a part-time basis within the Division of Civil Engineering; at the time, the division was a part of the Basics of Machinery Construction Institute at the Faculty of Machine Construction. In 1975, the Institute of Civil Engineering was created and granted full faculty rights. Students were first recruited into MSc studies in the fields of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering in the academic year 1975/1976. From the academic year 1980/1981 the Institute taught full-time MSc courses in both study modules, with part-time evening courses continued in the Civil Engineering module. A growing number of academic staff and students in both modules resulted in another reorganization. In March 1984 the Institute of Civil Engineering with full academic rights became the Faculty of Civil Engineering. In those days numerous student groups from Iraq, Syria, Algeria and Jordan studied at the Faculty. Between 1992 and 1996 the Faculty acted as the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

In 1994 both modules taught at the Faculty were included in the FEANI INDEX, thanks to which the graduates may apply for the EUR ING professional title. This title is a valuable tool for the recognition of national diplomas in engineering profession, facilitating careers in the EU-countries and worldwide.

In 1997 the Institute of Environmental Engineering was excluded from the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering and became an independent unit. The Faculty was renamed again as the Faculty of Civil Engineering. Thanks to the professional development and scientific achievements of its academic staff, in 2004 the Faculty was granted the right to confer doctorates in Civil Engineering.

Since 1975 students have been offered BSc and MSc courses in Civil Engineering, which are available on a full-time and part-time basis. Members of the Faculty are making efforts to open a new Architecture and Urban-planning module, leading to professional qualifications as an architect.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering has been participating in the EU Socrates-Erasmus programme since the academic year 1999/2000. Several dozens of students have already taken advantage of the opportunity to temporarily study at foreign partnering universities. Since the academic year 2007/2008 the Faculty has been realizing the Life Long Learning programme, which replaced the former Leonardo da Vinci and Socrates-Erasmus programmes. The programme allows students to go under their traineeships in EU member and official candidate states and, as before, temporarily study at partnering universities.

An engineer who has graduated from the Civil Engineering module is qualified to organize and manage a building enterprise, to design and supervise renovation, modernization, maintenance and using of building structures, as well as to cost civil engineering works and building structures themselves.

Furthermore, the Faculty organizes training courses on technologies used in civil engineering and on application of current building codes.

The research conducted at the Faculty comprises: thermomechanics of porous materials, testing propagation of non-linear waves in hyper-elastic media, designing tension expansion constructions, durability of bridges and concrete constructions, modelling energy saving structures with optimized energy potential, modelling technological processes to increase product quality, technological process efficiency and construction durability, analysis of the influence of additives and admixtures on physical and mechanical parameters of ordinary and high-quality concrete, designing skeleton buildings with a composite steel-and-concrete construction, calculating methods in multi-layered constructions. The offer of the Faculty addressed to the state's economy covers the full scope of research activities.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering actively cooperates in scientific and educational fields with home and foreign academic centres, among others with Technical Universities of Cracow, Warsaw, Białystok, Koszalin and Szczecin, Technische Universität Wien, the Saint-Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnic University and the Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture.
