Professional Practical Training
FAST-CW020Acad. year: 2017/2018
The professional work placement will involve active work by the student on the construction of a specific building or other structure, which will lead to the development of his/her specialised theoretical and practical knowledge. Students will carry out work directly on the building site during the construction process, in most cases in the position of an assistant site manager, and students will also work in construction planning departments. It is the duty of each student to keep a “Work Placement Record”. They are guided by a supervisor appointed from among the company’s employees who will give his/her opinion on the quality of work performed in a final evaluation.
The professional work placement is concluded at a final seminar where students acquaint their colleagues with the activities they performed during their practical training, including the presentation of produced materials and photos of the construction work they were involved in.

Learning outcomes of the course unit
Professional practical training as an active work of the student directly in the building practice extends professional knowledge acquired in the course of study. Students gain practical experience in erection of a particular construction in the context of specific features of the construction location, they prove their knowledge, skills and capabilities which represents better presumptions for the graduate´s future job. The feedback between the student and the building company is supported by keeping a “Record of the course of the practical training” where partial activities are recorded together with assessment of the student by a responsible representative of the company. In the final workshop the student presents his activity on the selected site, documented by photo and video documentation before the commission. By this mutual contact an opportunity for further cooperation is given to the students and building companies.
Knowledge from the areas of construction technology and the planning and execution of buildings within the scope of the Bachelor´s study programme and the 1st year of the Master´s study programme in the Execution of Buildings study specialisation.
