Goals and competencies

The objective of the course is to acquaint students with the basics of technology and organization of road transport. Students gain the ability to independently monitor the development of the profession and take initiatives to introduce innovations in the field of road transport technology. They learn about the basics for optimal planning and organization of the road transport process, especially from the point of view of the production of transport services in the transport of freight and passengers. In doing so, they are trained in the use of computer tools for processing the data necessary for the modern and efficient operation of road transport companies. Students are trained for technical and economic analysis (indicators of transport work, coefficients of utilization of road transport vehicles, transport fleet, transport routes and working hours). The acquired knowledge will enable students to simultaneously train for the management, planning, organization and supervision of road work technology.
