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.
