2. Objectives and learning outcomes
2.1 Objectives
The aim of the course is to provide the student with a comprehensive knowledge of the steel and reinforced concrete structures used in the field of infrastructure construction. The subject covers reinforced concrete and steel structures of hydraulic engineering structures, water and sewage storage and treatment pools and structures, structures on the ground, tunnels, underpasses, and road and railway bridges. The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the structural design, loads and construction issues of the works of art belonging to the above topics.
