|Abbreviation: IMS||Load: 15(L)
|Lecturers in charge: ||prof. dr. sc. Josip Stepanić
|Lecturers: ||dr. sc. Jelena Ćosić Lesičar
|Course description: Course objectives:
Develop methods for modelling of global systems, characterised by interdisciplinarity.
Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course:
There are no prerequisites for this class.
students, who want to fulfill requirements for grade through continuous efforts during the term, need to regularly deliver the reports about work conducted during practical exercises
Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam:
continuous, multilevel testing of knowledge and developed understanding
Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences:
analysis of written colloquia
analysis of nonstructured classes" discussions
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes):
Know the settings and basics of the science of systems.
Competent use methods of interdisciplinary system modeling.
Active and interdisciplinary apply the fundamental features of an innovative approach to system modeling.
