Aims

Improvement of student competencies and knowledge of work with different sources of information, exploiting computer aid. Training in planning, organization and control, selection of variants, correct decision-making and user processing of technical-economic or organizational backgrounds and information. Use of analytical and rating methods of problem solving, which are proposed for a new system or process with the target characteristics. Application of acquired knowledge and abilities in practice. A technical report is elaborated under professional guidance of the tutor and leader of the diploma thesis. The introductory, alternatively partial problems, which will be dealt with in detail in the diploma thesis, can be solved within this report. The report is professionally reviewed by a designated reviewer and must be defended by the student before the study group. Individual elaboration of the technical-economic or organizational final project report publication, which meets the requirements and principles for technical documentation.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Participation in the courses is obligatory and can be specified by the supervisor of the diploma thesis.
