Elektrotehnika 2. stopnja

Objectives and competences

Acquiring knowledge of a physical modelling and analysis of heterogeneous mechatronic subsystems. Integration of specific knowledge into examples of modern complex applications.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, seminars and laboratory exercises

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding:

The student will get acquainted with basic theory of mechanic elements and systems, as well as conventional and unconventional actuators. He will also understand the interaction between different units inside a complex system.

Application: Connection between achieved theoretical knowledge from other subjects with new knowledge in the area of widespread electromechanical systems.

Reflection: The subject will offer balanced theoretical and practical knowledge. At the same time, the student will be presented similar areas from the engineering practice. Thus, the connection between theoretical background and engineering reality becomes clearer.

Transferable skills: Use of information technologies when searching for examples of mechatronic systems and their presentation to the colleagues. Team work on projects.
