Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Elaboration of diploma thesis outputs under professional supervision. Consultation of a work plan, design variations, analyses, and interpretation of results. Interpretation of the required theory and recommendations of scientific literature related to the problem. Training and assistance in working with special measuring equipment and realization of experiments. Supervisor will ensure terms in the form of funds and equipment for successful outputs of diploma thesis.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions: active work on diploma thesis, which is confirmed by supervisor, submission of the text part of diploma thesis and all required outcomes. Active application for the final state exam.
Credit will be given for delivery of thesis outputs defined in the in the thesis assignment and submission of text part in physical and electronic form. All outputs in electronic form (text, attachments, photographic documentation of physical outputs) must be submitted via e-learning system Moodle in the required time.
Language of instruction
The course objective is to process the requested outputs of according to thesis specification.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
Teaching is controlled by supervisor of diploma thesis. If the supervisor is not satisfied with a student's result, the student will be assigned extra work to intensify the effort.
