The knowledge of Structural Mechanics is the basis for safe and economical designs of building structures and for assessment of their reliability and durability, which the students gradually learn on the Bachelor's programme in the Department of Structural Mechanics on the subjects of construction statics, statics of building structures, flexibility and plasticity, computer-aided statics calculations, and the reliability of building structures, of which some are taught in computer laboratories. Most students in the Department (and in the computer laboratories) are following the Bachelor's degree programme in Building Constructions, which is within the Civil Engineering field of study. These students are also taught the fundamentals of the finite element method, and the fundamentals of building dynamics. Master's degree graduates have the opportunity to pursue Structural Mechanics on a Doctoral degree level, which also include Numerical Methods and Reliability of Building Structures.
