Objectives and competences

The main goal of a seminar is synthesis and use of the obtained knowledge in the field of mechatronics to design prototypes of electrical circuits and devices.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, laboratory work

Intended learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students should be able to:

  • make a review of recent publications regarding the research topic,
  • create a feasible solution for a given task,
  • design a simulation model or experimental prototype of the mechatronic unit or a system,
  • organize research work and follow the proposed schedule of activities,
  • prepare oral presentation and final written report of research achievements,
  • propose possible improvements for the future work.
