Introductory Course of Building Services is focused on sanitary installations, gas supply system and heating systems. Sanitary installations - introduction, hydraulic pipes, water supply facilities, balance water needs. Internal water supply systems - installation, materials, calculation, waste water and disposal, sewage systems, internal drainage, types of fixtures. Gas - external pipelines, connections, balance of gas, internal pipeline systems, flue gas. Central heating and design of heating surfaces. Calculation of heat balance. Heating system. Preparation of hot water. Heat sources - boiler, electric heating, district heating, renewable sources.


Attendance at lectures is highly recommended. Participation in other forms of organized learning is mandatory and is controlled.

Exam conditions.

The exam has a written and oral part. Before starting the written part of the exam, the student must complete seminars and obtain credit in KOS system. The written part of the exam is in the form of written answers to 10 questions - 5 from sanitary systems (water supply, sewerage, gas pipeline) and 5 from heating. The minimum number of points achieved is 6 out of 10. If the student fails to meet this condition, he / she fails the test and must repeat the entire exam. The duration of the written test is 30 minutes.

The final classification is done in the oral part of the exam on the basis of the written part and additional questions, taking into account the assessment from the exercises. In case the student does not appear to the oral part of the test, the test result is „insufficient“ and must repeat the entire test

Details of the conditions for the award of credit, requirements and the course of the examination are given on the course website.
