Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject in connection with the study subjects from the previous year introduce students with problematic of water supply (storage and withdrawal, protection of resources) and water supply (transport and distribution networks)

Teaching methods

Project work


In this course, students are acquainted with the knowledge of water supply (methods of calculation of water needs, water supply system - pumping stations and reservoirs, pipe materials, fittings and fittings, etc.) and the development of legislation. In the exercises, the calculation of water demand and design of the water reservoir are practiced on specific examples.
