A-Know the various processes of execution in construction works; including execution techniques, function of materials, execution sequences, equipment involved, advantages and disadvantages of each process.
B-Ability to recognize the various equipment, understand decisions on the choice of appropriate processes and means employed as well as good environmental enforcement practices and good compliance with applicable legislation.
C-The curricular unit also aims to train basic management of works, namely in:
Measurement of activities at project level and on site; Interpretation of the temporal and physical planning of the work, of the activity and understanding the concept of price review

Continuous assessment during the period of contact (time of attendance):
It comprises two parts corresponding to each part (I and II) indicated in the syllabus.
In each part, the assessment consists of a written test (rated at 20 points) and an oral defense (rated at 20 points). The classification (final) of each part (CP1 and CP2) corresponds to the sum of the classification of the written test, with a weight of 70%, and the oral defense, with a weight of 30%.
CP1 = written test P1 (70% weight) + P1 defense (30% weight)
CP2 = written test P2 (70% weight) + P2 defense (30% weight)
The final classification of the UC corresponds to the sum of the classifications of each part with the following weights:
Final classification = CP1 (60% weight) + CP2 (40% weight)
Students are approved (exam waiver) if the final grade is greater than or equal to 10 values.
Assessment by exam (exam periods, appeal exams and special exams):
It comprises a written test quoted for 20 values. Students are approved if the classification of the written exam is greater than or equal to 10 values.

The expository method is used to explain the main theoretical themes is use audio-visual illustrations with various details of the execution of the construction processes and the analysis of current management documents in the construction.
During the presentation of practical cases, students will always have the opportunity to ask questions allowing to understand the technical suitability and economic solutions and understand the most appropriate choice.
