Main topics: Engineering Geology studies the composition, structure and properties of rocks and soils of the earth's crust, geologic processes, determining the conditions of construction, plus the engineer-geological phenomena occurring in the earth layers of the impact of the already constructed facilities. The academic course "Engineering Geology" explores the substantial composition of the Earth (minerals and rocks) and all geological processes (earthquakes, nowadays vertical and horizontal crustal movements, land slides, talus, erosion, abrasion, carst) that take place in its womb and significantly affect the conditions of construction development. Basic geological knowledge is delivered, Geo-ecological thinking and right attitude towards the environment are being developed. Engineering characterization of rocks and construction soils, and evaluation of the hydrogeological conditions related to construction are carried out. Main engineering issues that civil engineers need to know are regarded, as well as deposits of various rock across the land and soil compounds is studied.
