|Course description: Course objectives:
Familiarize the students of all study fields with plastics packaging manufacturing procedures.
Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course:
Regular attendance of lectures and exercises, homework assignment.
Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam:
Colloquiums or written exam 70% Homework 20% Oral exam 10%
Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences:
The results of the tasks and colloquies comment with students. The interaction with students during class (asking questions) is checked understanding the material and the acquisition of competencies and skills in accordance with the learning outcomes.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes):
