Research & Development at VSU

The implementation of scientific research is integral part of activity of the academic staff of VSU.

Priorities in the scientific research activity at VSU are:

    1. Modeling of a modern educational system for preparation of construction specialists with higher education;
    2. Buildings and Installations Reinforcing, Renovation and Reconstruction;
    3. Development and Improvement of Construction Enterprising;
    4. Production control, testing and assessment of construction products and their certification;
    5. Overcoming of consequences after natural disasters, accidents and catastrophes.

Scientific sessions and conferences are organized and conducted annually at VSU. Teachers and students from the School and participants from different universities and scientific institutions from Bulgaria and abroad deliver their reports of scientific achievements.
