Dean's message

Túžba meniť svet k lepšiemu je v každom z nás. Stavebníctvo je jednou z možností, ako tento sen naplniť. Stavba je komplexné dielo nielen z pohľadu architektúry, konštrukčných systémov, ale vnímame ju ako podnikateľský projekt. Je potrebné ju naplánovať, realizovať, predať a nájsť vhodný spôsob užívania. Príď k nám študovať a toto všetko ťa naučíme. Postav si s nami svoju úspešnú budúcnosť!

Pedagogical activity

The department provides teaching of professional subjects in the field of transport engineering and geotechnics in the study field of Civil Engineering. The department is a workplace where doctoral studies are carried out in the study programme Theory and Design of Civil Engineering Structures.


Scientific research activity

Scientific research activity is oriented on solving scientific problems of transport planning, road and railway construction, geotechnics and foundations, assessment of transport constructions from the point of view of their impact on the environment. The activity is carried out by means of scientific domestic and international projects of basic research, applied research and solving actual problems for practice. In the experimental field, research focuses on obtaining traffic characteristics of roads, the use of industrial by-products and other wastes in roadway construction layers, diagnostics of roadway and subgrade construction, and quantification and assessment of traffic noise. Members of the department are involved in the preparation of studies, expertise and the provision of expert advice, training and consultancy in the field of traffic engineering and geotechnical engineering.
