Learning outcomes
The course is an advanced continuation of the MZI course. It is focused on the practical use of information technology with an emphasis on current trends in the use of modern technologies in the ICT sector. Students work in an e-learning environment where they solve more complex tasks - some of them require teamwork.
The student masters practical skills in working with modern technologies: design and processing of 3D printing, model creation using 3D scanner, control and programming of 3D mechanical hand, programming of single-chip computers, advanced editing of graphic, audio and video materials, virtual reality.
The course has no prerequisities.
