Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences:
Preliminary exams, written essay and oral presentation.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes):
Apply advanced knowledge of science and technology to solve complex technical problems in an interdisciplinary context. Solve new problems by applying acquired knowledge of the elements of technical systems and processes and their interactions during their entire life cycle. Use advanced modeling techniques for technical systems and processes modeling, as a tool for creative solving of complex problems in mechanical and related engineering. Interpret the materials, technologies and technical systems from the business and social standpoint and environmental concerns.
