Aims

During the course the students learn to use theoretical knowledge obtained in previous ages for solution of more complicated geotechnical problems. The students will be able to solve complex geotechnical tasks including analysis of the problem, educational literature and standards, making of geotechnical profile, input geotechnical data, computation model, analysis of results.
