The history of the department goes back to 1954. Since that time The Department of Building Techno­logy provides instruction in subjects inclu­ding the Technology of Building Processes, Building Technology, Building-service Tech­nology, Site Equip­ment Theory, Computer-Aided Preconstruction Design, Project Ma­nagement, Preconstruction Design of Reno­vation, Environ­mental Protection During Construction, and Total Quality Manage­ment.

Research activities are mainly focused on the optimisation of site facilities, optimal usage of machines and multiple-machine groups, methods and criteria for optimum decision-making in preconstruction design, pro­ject and maintenance management, total build­ing quality management, environmental protec­tion during construction, biocorrosion of build­ing structures, simulation models of building processes and non-destructive testing, techniques and procedures of building renovation.

In other years, the department led projects of applied research, namely FIBERDIST „Analysis of homogenity of fibers in fiber-reinforced concrete“; AFIDINCON „Analysis of distribution of steel fibers in real structures“; SLWA_DESORPT „Evaluation and model of water desorption from lightweight aggregate for internal curing in concrete“; Acceleration of concrete hardening using electric (resistance) wires;
