Tunnel engineering is one of the oldest, most interesting but also challenging engineering disciplines and demands not only theoretical knowledge but also practical experience in geology, geomechanics, structural design, concrete construction, machine technology, construction process technology and construction management. All tunnels have various degrees of complexity depending on function and safety needs or the code requirements at the time of construction, but most tunnels employ one or many functional systems, such as lighting, ventilation, drainage, fire detectors and alarms, fire suppression, communications and traffic control.
