Institutes are basic scientific and research organizational units on a Faculty, where scientific research and expertise activities take place through the development of research projects, studies, expertise, field and laboratory testing, as well as through the reviews and drafting of technical documentation in the field of civil engineering and geodesy. In addition to performing creative and specific research and highly professional activities of a Faculty’s common interest, institutes may be involved in the provision of commercial services within a Faculty’s activities.
