Abstract:The main task of civil engineering faculties is the education and training of civil engineers. For successful application in the labor market, it is necessary to adapt the courses requirements of the practice. That was the reason for creation of new field of study - Realization of transport constructions.
Graduate profile of study program of Realization of transport constructions at the Faculty of Civil Engineering TU Kosice is defined with an emphasis on good theoretical training, with the possible use of information technology.
An important part of the comprehensive training is autonomy and creativity development. To achieve those characteristics help the progressive teaching methods and technologies. The main task of the e-TUKE program is to implement e-learning, and support ICT use in the teaching process. The Faculty of Civil Engineering as a part of TUKE regards the support of innovative teaching methods and technologies as well as e-learning as the crucial part of its development plan .
The paper deals with the analysis of the student’s readiness to innovation content and form of study materials. Materials will also be converted into a electronic supported media. As a basis for draw conclusions served the evaluation questionnaire submitted to the student’s group of civil engineering faculty.
