Full description: The course includes content from the scope of interdisciplinary activities linking technology and biological solutions of landscape managements. It presents the degradation of water, soil, land and vegetation. Presents measures to renaturalisation of surface waters and reclamation of degraded lands. It presents the technical and biological construction of waterways and reservoirs. Providing technical solutions and biological processes for controlling the migration of wild animals. Presents the management and use of rainwater in urban areas. Presents legal and administrative tools in landscape engineering. Part of the course takes place in the form of a field trip.

Learning outcomes: Knowledge Identifies the causes of the degradation of the landscape, in particular the elements and forms of degradation of water, soil and land and vegetation. It indicates technical, biological and organizational appropriations and methods of treatment, reclamation, renaturalization and development of the environment and landscape. He knows the basic methods of technical and biological construction of watercourses and reservoirs as well as geotechnical and biological methods of preventing the development of undesirable geodynamic processes. Skills Evaluate the potential effects of the degradation of the landscape, in particular the elements and forms of degradation of water, soil and land and vegetation, and also indicates the methods and ways of counteracting these processes. Knows how to use of norms, standards of engineering, specialized literature to develop, reclamation and re environment and landscape. Use, calculated and designs technical and biological measures to renaturalization surface water, the reclamation of degraded areas and the management of rainwater. Social competences Demonstrates understanding of the importance of engineering the landscape for the development of society, is aware of the responsibility for rational and efficient management of resources landscape, understands the importance of technical measures aimed at shaping the landscape for society. Able to think and act in a creative and enterprising, interact and work in a group (assuming different roles), defining priorities for completing the task of engineering the landscape. Understands the need for continuous replenishment of their knowledge and skills in the field of new technologies and solutions used in landscape engineering .
