Learning outcomes of the course unit
The student can
- build abstract models of dynamical systems from various physical areas in a systematic way
- make simulation and analysis of such models by help of MATLAB-Simulik software package
- normalize models to be used on microprocessors
- linearize nonlinear systems models
- design basic models of discrete event systems
The subject knowledge on the secondary school level is required.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods include lectures, exercises and computer laboratories. Knowledge is verified using tests at exercises.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Work of students is evaluated during study by tests in exercises and one control test. They can obtain maximum 30 points by these tests during semester.
Final examination is evaluated by 70 points at maximum.
Conditions for awarding the course-unit credit:
1. Active participation in exercises
2. Minimum of 10 points awarded for tests at exercises
