Activities of teaching and learning: Innovative teaching and learning methods are used: traditional and interactive lectures, lectures by visiting lecturers (practitioners), study tours and working visits, seminars, laboratory works, information retrieval and summarization tasks, case studies, problem analyses, work with simulation models, individual and group projects, discussions. The student's independent work is based on tasks and teamwork, in which critical thinking is very important. The programme aims at the active participation of students in the study process and to find ways to solve problems.
Methods of assessment of learning achievements: Knowledge and skills are assessed applying a cumulative ten-point rating system. Study results are evaluated during the interim scorings (assessment of tests, individual and group assignments and their presentations, defending projects, practical and self-study works, etc.). The final evaluation (mark) includes scoring of the interim assessments and examination.
Framework: Study subjects (modules), practical training:
