Reasons for choosing a course
  • Education in the 08.04.01 “Construction” specialization provides an excellent opportunity to get a second degree and become more competitive in the labor market;

  • The main objective of the graduate school is the preparation of qualified specialists and managers at all levels in the field of construction, able to solve problems of a fundamental and applied nature using advanced scientific achievements;

  • Graduate school is the most important step in the system of training qualified personnel for research, design, production and technological, pedagogical and other activities. The Master’s degree forms the basis for the further career growth of graduates, allowing them to both continue research work, enter postgraduate school, and apply the acquired knowledge in practice when designing or implementing projects for the construction of facilities of various industrial civil purposes.


After graduating from this educational program, specialists are allowed to do the following types of work in construction: design technological or structural solutions for the construction of structures for various purposes; develop space-planning and technological solutions for objects of complex spatial configuration; work as organizers / leaders (of various levels of responsibility) by construction processes directly on construction sites; work in expert and supervisory organizations, quality control of survey, design and construction work; perform research work aimed at obtaining new knowledge.
