Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to make a search in selected highly specialized construction activities. On the basis of the research, the determination of the specific goals of the thesis, the analysis of the problem, the development of the scientific field in selected specialization and the drawing of clear conclusions, both scientific and practical.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of building constructions and related subject fields (building services, technology and proceeding of buildings, concrete and masonry constructions, timber and metal constructions) at the level of a graduate student of building construction study programme. Practise is an advantage.

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
