In the Bachelor Degree Courses, emphasis will laid on the development of fundamental concepts and principles, which constitute the basis of Civil Engineering practice. To foster their creative abilities, the students are assigned projects on design, construction of laboratory investigations. Theory classes of different subjects are complemented by tutorials and laboratory work. The classroom and laboratory work is supplemented with instructional tours to acquaint students with the civil engineering projects of national importance and with survey camp where they plan and execute survey of large areas independently.
