Objective

·Making the student acquainted with new technology procedures, application of new materials and stuffs. To the lectures company representatives are regularly invited to demonstrate special application of new materials based on the latest knowledge of the science. Specific characteristics of these materials are referred to as well as possible differences in application compared to traditional technology processes.

Knowledge

By mastering the course the students will acquire basic knowledge of new materials applied by building companies. The materials are presented in lectures by their producers together with manners of their application based on scientific knowledge.

Syllabus
