Course detail

Theory of Constructions II

FA-TK2Acad. year: 2019/2020

Deals with the analysis of characteristic examples of more complex types of structures, which enables to understand their behaviour and, accordingly, to make principal conceptual decisions.

Learning outcomes of the course unit
