Planned learning activities and teaching methods:
The course contains 13 lectures, each taking 2 hours and 13 laboratory practices, each taking 3 hours. Contact teaching: lectures 26 h laboratory practice 39 h Contactless teaching: preparation for lectures and laboratory exercises (study of literature, calculations) - 12 h preparation of reports and assignments - 30 h preparation for the exam - 20 h
Assesment methods and criteria:
The student submits reports from individual assignments, which are based on simulations. The assignments are solved in laboratories and individually and are scored. The student prepares, submits a written examination. The student passes the course successfully if he/she submits all reports and his/her success in laboratory practices is at least 56% and the evaluation of the project is at least 56% from the maximum number of points.
