Subject description


  • Prerequisites are defined in the Rules on examination and evaluation of knowledge of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
  • High-school knowledge suffices
  • Medial status allowing activeparticipation
  • •For entering the competition program:appropriate level of knowledge of the
  • chosen sportTutorials take place in the University indoor(gym, fitness, swimming pool) and outdoor sportfacilities. Students can choose between theexercise programs (subject to availability).
  • Training groups size vary with the chosenprogram, according to the prescribes norms.

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • General theoretical part contains lectures, which are common to all sports programs and are iven collectively for all students (basic operation of the human body, its physical, cardiovascular and respiratory system, psychomotor and functional abilities, sports and physical activity as a preventive and curative activity for maintaining and reinforcing health, the basics of healthy eating, regulation of body weight and other medical aspects of sport, methods for testing and assessment of psychomotor status and functional abilities). Additionally, students can prepare a short seminar paper (about 3 to 4 pages) from the general theoretical content.
  • Special theoretical part is bound to the selected sport (specialties of the sport and its impact on the humans, sport technique, tactics and rules, fundamentals of physical and technical tactical preparation) and is implemented through practical exercises.
  • Practical exercises: students can choose from sports (basketball, soccer, volleyball, swimming, fitness, outdoor activities) in the framework of the offered two modules.

Module one: Educational program: Content of the educational program of sports are sports, which are performed in a variety of formats and at several levels of complexity. In includes the learning programs and training in selected sports (with the required supplements the training scheme may be also suitable for training for professional work in the sport), which is carried out continuously over the two semesters; or, if more appropriate, in the more concentrated form.

Module two (only as supplement to module one): Competition program The competition program includes all faculty,university, inter-university and international competitions (European and world competitions and Universiade) in selected sports and is an integral part of the active coexistence of students, teachers and other members of the University, to participate within the faculties and universities. This program includes pre-judged the students.

Objectives and competences:

  • Objectives: The objectives of the course are to encourage students to evolve the positive attitudes towards sport through an organized and systematic guided sport practice; to raise awareness on the values of sport; to accustom students to a healthy lifestyle and active and creative use of free time; to guide organized sport at the University and wider; to precautionary influence the effects of the lack of exercise; to develop mental and physical skills; and to improve knowledge in selected individual sports.
  • Competences: rational incorporation of sport into the way of living, design of rational and motional attitude towards physical effort, knowledge of the theory of active rest, understanding the definition of a healthy lifestyle, mastering the methods for the regeneration of the body, knowledge of the effects of sport recreation on the overall health knowledge of healthy eating and weight control, knowledge of the medical aspects of sport, knowledge of the specificities of the most common pathologies of the musculoskeletal and cardio-vascular system, conquering the favorite sport.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • Understanding the basic concepts and theories of the operation of human locomotor, cardiovascular and respiratory system and its pathologies. The creation of a rational and motional attitudes towards physical effort, knowledge of the theory of active rest and the methods for regeneration of the body, knowledge of the healthy eating and weight control.
  • Improving the knowledge of the selected sport. Conquering the contents of sport as foundations for enabling the quality of life. Application: use of the acquired knowledge to compensate for the daily stress during the study. Reflection: use of the acquired knowledge to compensate for the daily stress in the professional and family life. Transferable skills - not tied to just one course.

Learning and teaching methods:

  • lectures,
  • lectures in the context of exercises,
  • exercises,
