Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the issue of mining surveying in underground construction. Students will gain knowledge in the field of construction and management of mining surveying work in the construction of tunnels, subway collectors and other underground structures in connection with applicable legislation and current requirements of practice. As part of the course, students will also acquire practical skills in exercises on type tasks that correspond to the syllabus.
