|Individual weekly tasks and quizzes in moodle and a seminar|
Based on this course, student will be able to: describe the geological processes and their effect on construction and human activities and vice versa; compare the environmental effects of earth construction and aggregate production to the national regulations; name by-products potential for civil engineering and describe their technical and environmental properties; describe the transportation, retardation and attenuation processes of contaminants in soil; describe the landfill bottom and cover structures and other ground water protection structures and their performance and administrative requirements; choose a proper material for typical ground water protection structures; plan soil investigations for soil contamination and choose suitable remediation method; find the reliable and relevant information sources and review and report the information critically.
