Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures. According to the possibility of teaching can be organized lectures for students by practitioners and excursions to companies focused on activities related to the course content.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

The course is taught in the form lectures and seminars. The exercise is completed by the credit. To acquire the required 100% participation from the presented term project. Exams when the overall classification is composed of two sub-scores (as assessed ECTS).

Language of instruction

Czech

Work placements

Not applicable.

Aims

The aim of the course is to learn the methods of design using CAD software (Inventor, SolidWorks, etc.), computer software (Mathcad MITCalc, etc.) and simulation software ADAMS.

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

The students’ participation and activity in seminars shall be checked. 100% participation in seminars is required; in case of absence, the student is obliged to substitute for the missed tuition in a way determined by the teacher.
