infrastructure systems as part of the built environment, infrastructure of the communities
and factors affecting the operating environment of systems and their development
- can describe systems, actors and roles of the actors in the field of infrastructure
as well as the basic principles of building and maintaining systems and being sustainable
- be able to describe the mobility and transport needs, the transport system and the different modes of transport
and the basics of transport system design
- can present the bus infrastructure to structures, management, legislation, bus hierarchy
and the design system basics
Can explain the role of streets as a multi - mode mode of transport and different functions, and
as a location for water supply, energy and telecommunications networks
- can describe the main concepts and principles of water management, different system levels and their
interconnections and responsibilities for the organization and implementation of water services
- identify the type of expertise required in infrastructure engineering and its sub-sectors,
the importance of collaboration and the societal context of communities' technical systems
development and maintenance, as well as tasks in the industry.

Instructions for students to achieve proficiency levels:
The grade of the course is determined by the part-time credit made during the course. Each
partial payment must be made in a satisfactory manner. Achieving grade 3 requires a course
good control over core content.
