Graduate of the subject obtains a basic summary of technical facilities, constructional solving of basic nodal points of objective mechanization and mechanical units, technology of earthy and building machines settings. Content of the subject are mainly earthy machinery – dozers, scrapers, road grader, shovel excavator, shovel loader, trencher, scarifier and so on. Further it are machinery for big earth movement - bucket wheel excavators, steam-paddy and shovel excavators and machinery for raw material exploitation, adjustement and manipulation - shearer and digging complexes, crushers and mills and landfill machinery.

Compulsory literature:

Study literature mainly for English speaking students will be recommended individually depending on the theme of the semestral project. Standards, machine parts catalogues, technical and mechanical tables and corporate literature - depending on the character tasks.
