According to scientific-research and teaching activity The Institute of Transport is divided into four institutes: The Department of Transport and Process Equipment, The Department of Transport Equipment, The Department of Transport Technology and The Department of Air Transport.
The Institute of Transport provides teaching activity in the study branches “Transport Equipment and Technology”, “Transport Machines and Material Handling”, “Air Transport Technology”, “The Technology of Operating Air Equipment” and “The Technology of Maintaining Air Equipment” in bachelor study programmes and teaching activity in the branch “Transport Equipment and Technology” and “Design and Process Engineering” in a follow-up masters study programme and a further doctoral study in the branch “Transport and Handling Equipment”.
In the framework of the bachelor study programme “Air Transport Technology” The Department of Air Transport provides students teaching in the framework of the study branch “The Technology of Maintaining Air Equipment” basic training for acquiring a license which authorizes the holder to release airplanes and their components into operation in the terms of their maintenance. In the framework of the study branch “The Technology of Operating Air Equipment” it provides students theoretical training in the framework of acquiring the necessary combination of licences and qualifications, which authorize a holder to pilot aircraft in commercial air transport. In the framework of the study branch “Air Transport Technology” it provides students an operational-economic base with an emphasis on the problems of air transport safety and environmental protection. The Institute closely co-operates with the Mining-Geology Faculty and the Faculty of Civil Engineering and provides teaching for them at the same time.
