Diploma Project II (M-KSI, M-PDS)
FSI-ZD5Acad. year: 2020/2021
The course is intended to facilitate students’ work on their diploma theses. The output of each thesis is in addition to the text part also one of the following outputs: article in proceedings or in periodical, utility or industrial model or technically realized result (prototype, functional sample).
This course was supported under the FabLabNet project from the European Regional Development Fund within the programme "Interreg Central Europe". The course uses facilities of the open-access student workshop "StrojLab", built with the support of Institute of Machine and Industrial Design and the FabLabNet project.
