Computer Science in Automation
FEKT-BVTAAcad. year: 2018/2019
The course is targeted to basis program MATLAB, modeling of simple tasks, the basics of the program Simulink and demonstration exercises.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students are able to use the program MATLAB and Simulink, high-tech software packages, which are used in the field of automation and generally in praxis. The acquired knowledge will continue to be used in the preparation of protocols, tasks, and projects. After graduating from the course will gain insight about how to use computer technology to the solution of typical problems in the automation as well as in technical practice.
The subject knowledge on the secondary school level is required. Especially physics and math (matrix calculus)
