Course detail

Diploma Seminar (R)

FAST-NWA025Acad. year: 2023/2024

The contents of the course are linked to the Specialized Project (R) course. It focuses mainly on the production of documents for a construction technology planning project , with the option of considering the specific features of particular building companies participating in the practical training side of students’ tuition. Emphasis is placed on the modelling of the construction process, and the design of the spatial, technical and time structure of the assigned building project using computer support in order to achieve the optimum construction process. Production of documentation for a building site facilities design project, and documentation for the qualitative, safety and environmental requirements of a construction process.

Entry knowledge

Knowledge from the area of structural design and the execution of construction sub-processes, including quality requirements. Modelling of the technical and time structure of construction execution, the production area and the resources needed for construction execution, with the use of computer software. Understanding of economic tools for construction management.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

Extent and forms are specified by guarantor’s regulation updated for every academic year.


The course objective is to prepare the students to write a diploma thesis with the contents of construction technology project of the construction contractor by regular consultations with the diploma thesis supervisor.
The output of the Diploma Seminary II (R) course is elaboration of the diploma thesis on the given topic – usually elaboration of workshop drawings for implementation of the given construction, with regular consultations with the leader of the diploma thesis.
