- Technological competence
The learning objectives of the course:
You will be able to determine the usual loads (own weight, payloads, natural loads), building frame systems and you know how they operate. You know the most common types of body stiffening and you know how to apply these in different situations, you know the NR structures and the related characteristics in terms of design and installation. You know the regulations and guidelines on structural sound insulation and their application. You know the obligations and structural requirements for civil defense shelters. You are familiar with the description methods and drawing symbols used in architectural and construction design, and you are familiar with the key elements of structural design.
These are also the basic tasks of the course
The Student has to show that he masters the learning objectives of the course with proof, such as f.eg. certificate of earlier degrees, documents made in working life and performances supplemented with statements.
The course is part of studies that belong to qualifications of civil engineer (Ministry of the Environment guidelines on the difficulty classes of design tasks YM1/601/2015).
The studies follow guidelines of curriculum performed in cooperation with Universities of applied sciences and construction industry in 2017.
