Course detail

Specialised Seminar

FSI-TSNAcad. year: 2011/2012

Task of seminary is to teach students so-called Popularisation to them self. They will learn how to present their branch and results to technically or naturally educated public. At seminars each student select and present a topic from their own study branch, which is close to them. Student has to discuss about the topic in the broad context, however he/she is expected to formulate his/her own point of view.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

At the final stage of their study, the students should be conscious of integrating ideas of physics and relations of various physical disciplines, and be capable of applying the basic principles to simple physical systems in order to explain and predict the behaviour of such systems.


Knowledge of fundamentals and integrating ideas of physics gained by students in the course of their study of the Physical Engineering Study Programme.
