Students will focus primarily on planning the submitted master's project. Subsequently, in relation to the project topic, they deepen their theoretical, technical and practical skills. The aim of the joint consultation is to seek the best possible solution of the project and to prevent undesirable collisions. Students create and present continuous development of projects or individual prototypes (prototype). Individual solutions, whether of a conceptual or technical nature, take place individually, according to the nature of the project and the needs of students. The partial tasks are fulfilled by students in view of their master's thesis.
