Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To acquaint students with the technology of underground excavation works particularly small cross dimensions (collectors, galleries, water and sewer facilities, gallery and gallery), focusing on classic-style by drilling and blasting work. Part of the design and dimensions support construction, machinery and determine the face of technological times excavation cycle of operations. The conclusion is devoted to continuous stamping technology by stamping machines, TBM.
