Basic knowledge of geological materials, their physical and technical characteristics; basic knowledge of the importance of different preconditions as topography, geology and ecology when a is road is relocated and constructed; basic knowledge of ecologic mechanisms, global environmental problems and important technical systems like energy and waste; enough knowledge of environmental law to judge when change of land use requires a special permission.
Integration of different aspects on change of land use: Road construction, Geology, Environmental systems as part of the physical sciences; Environmental law.
Project works will demand integration between the different aspects.
