About

The Civil Engineering and Earth Sciences progrma of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics is offered in continuation of the three master programs. By choosing the research topic in your application, you are implicitly selecting the respective PhD programme.

Overview

Short description of the study programme

The Civil Engineering and Earth Sciences progrma of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics covers structural, geotechnical, transportation and water infrastructure engineering, in strong contact with the industry. Research topics in structural engineering include building physics; design, diagnostics and sustainability of building materials and constructions; fire safety; field testing and computational design of bridges and building structures; fragility of structures subjected to extreme actions; structural stability; topology optimization; biomechanics; masonry, cable and tent structures; geotechnics; rock mechanics and engineering geology. 

As to infrastructure engineering, research topics are offered in hydrodynamics of rivers and lakes; ecohydraulics; hydrology of rural and urban catchments; hydrogeology and ecosystems; water and wastewater treatment infrastructure and technology; pollution and nutrient transport in natural waters; river basin management; design and monitoring of road and railway track structure.

The programme in Earth Sciences covers surveying, geodesy, remote sensing and geoinformatics engineering. Research topics include: GNSS positioning and remote sensing, interferometric SAR imagery, high-resolution monitoring of structural deformations, gravity field studies, big-data acquisition sensors and modelling processes, high-definition mapping for autonomous vehicles, computer vision. We are co-operating with other fields to create multidisciplinary applications: culture heritage protection, military, transportation, medicine, hydrology, geosciences, geology and space industry.
