Learning outcomes

Students will enhance the understanding and deepen their knowledge in selected areas of building construction. The course prepares the students for a professional role in the construction projects by providing them with an understanding of implementation of new technologies and techniques, materials, building systems and technical requirements. They will be able to analyse the current state of the art. They will learn to apply appropriate techniques, monitor and control the progress of their implementation. They will analyse the current situation and compile a comparison with newly discovered facts. The focus of the analysis will be on the employment of the monitored new building systems and their evaluation as well.
