Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Objective of the course in terms of learning outcomes and competences is to provide students with the basics to all kind of geotechnical subterranean and on earth surface constructions and respective geotechnical structures that are indispensable part of them. Students acquires sufficient knowledge to be familiar in the topic of geotechnical constructions, that are necessary for their professional work and further development of acquired knowledge by self-study from professional literature.

Summary

The content of the course are the next topics: terminology, classification of geotechnical constructions, in detail there are on display geotechnical subterranean and on earth surface constructions and respective geotechnical structures that are indispensable part of them. Attention is given to the all kind of geotechnical circumstances under which the constructions are realized and further to the methods and technologies of their implementation, and to the necessary geotechnical structures, which are indispensable part of them.
