Course detail

Technology of Constructions

FAST-BWB014Acad. year: 2024/2025

Technology of constructions is dealing with research, development, modelling and implementation of production processes in civil engineering. The objective is an optimum and economic manner of the execution of building structures, buildings and their complexes.
The course covers introduction into the branch of the technology of constructions, division of construction processes, their technology, spatial and time structure and optimisation of their course. In addition the students are acquainted with preparation and realisation phase of the investment process, from the letter of intent up to the passing over of a completed building into operation.

Entry knowledge

Basic knowledge of planning and designing of construction of civil engineering and utility services.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

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


Acquiring of knowledge of selected construction processes, of requirements for their readiness before execution, balance of sources, principles of technology procedures of individual construction processes, their sequence and links, requirements for their quality, safety and environmental protection in the course their realisation.
Basic information on requirements for the construction preparation and realisation.
By mastering the objectives of the Technology of Constructions course the students acquire principal knowledge of partial technology stages of the building operations process.The course will teach them to understand the pre-production, erection and user processes from the point of view of all common parties in the construction procedure.
