Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught in the form of lectures that have the character of explanation of basic principles and theory of the given discipline. The exercise is focused on practical mastery of the subject matter covered in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Written (or oral) exam, part of the evaluation is 30% of the exercises. The written part of the exam is solving examples and theoretical questions (or test), evaluation of both of these parts has the same weight.

Language of instruction
