Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The objective is development of student's skills to assess by the application of systems analysis quality of rock environment of specific area for special engineering applications. It have to be realized with the application of all accessible sources of information about the area.

Teaching methods



The students will learn within the subject Regional engineering geology to enjoy systematically all accessible information about rock environment during the creation of conceptual and comprehensive model of rock environment structures and materials in specific area.
