Management and staff

Šachťák - Mining events

We stick to old mining traditions in the form of regular 'beer halls', i.e. meetings of the miners' council. These culminate once a year in a festival called 'Jump over the leather apron', which is a traditional miners' initiation rite when new miners are admitted to the guild.

Laboratories and classrooms

The department has special-purpose classrooms and laboratories for instruction and research.
