Lectures detail exposition about principles, theories and real examples providing: a general introduction to a section of the syllabus; a broad overview of a new topic or subject area in order to prepare the students for more detailed study of specific aspects thereof; in depth view with a particularly important principle, law, method, etc. and its main applications. The teaching methodology relays mainly in oral exposition with the assistance of material (topics, charts, photography) displayed via computer/video.

In practical classes students are devoted to solve peculiar problems to the worksite environment, namely: a case study in a particularly important area like activities planning, budget or contract bidding; a critical comparative evaluation of key systems, processes and methods of construction technologies. This process of problem solving is teacher aided and based on an initial given data and solution topics.
