Czech title: Stavební hmoty a diagnostika staveb
English title: Building Materials and Diagnostics of Structures
Study period: 1,5 year
Guarantee department: Department of Building Materials and Diagnostics of Structures
Guarantee: doc. Ing. Vlastimil Bílek, Ph.D.
Key words: Development of new building materials, Testing of building materials and products, Building materials, Rehabilitation of building structures, Diagnostics and degradation of building structures
Branche profile: The master’s study of the field Building materials and diagnostics of constructions is based on fundamentals taught within the bachelor’s study of this field. More information is presented and students acquire detailed knowledge of the theoretical science as well as technology subjects. A particular attention is paid to applications of the European legislative and European standards in the building with a focus on testing and quality control of building materials and structures. Lectures discuss also special building materials, building element technologies, secondary raw and fast growing raw materials and recycling of building materials, testing science and control of construction quality, silicate technologies, construction diagnostics and environment impact assessment. The master’s study is completed with a diploma thesis, being a proof for graduate’s abilities to solve problems, and with a state exam. .
Vocational knowledge: Graduate in his final thesis declares ability to solve independently and creatively theoretical and practical the concrete task, which nature results from requirements of practice. Diploma thesis assumes adoption of advanced research methods, analysis and procedures, based on which is possible to obtain others, new knowledge in field of study. In their application to problem graduate demonstrate ability to perform applications in general and specific term. In experimental part of diploma thesis graduate declares ability used research and experimental methods, which lead to solution of given practical problem. He declares ability to pronounce general and specific conclusions.

Vocational competences: Graduation of study and especially the at final thesis defense, student declares independence in decision processes, especially in the contexts of new or changing realities, ability to interpret clearly results of his work in front of colleagues and professional public or interprets the teamwork and take the responsibility for this work. Contents and way of presentation of results is evaluation criterion, especially ability to interpret independently results of theoretical and experimental processes, and quality of information obtained at work and the way of presentation this information, graduate ability to develop these skills independently. Graduate independently solves problematic of ethics in the context of environmental issue. Presentation of results in one world language is assumed.
Alumnus profile: Mining and underground constructions or can be employed in testing material laboratories, cement works, brick plants and generally in the production of building materials and prefabricated elements. Considering their general educational background, they can be also employed in re-development of constructions or can work as self-employed businessmen.
