Learning outcomes
The main goal of the subject is acquisition of basic overview in the scope of using IT for behaviour prediction of selected systems. Graduate of the study subject will have basic image about available software (commercial and freeware applications) and about possibility of its use for solving of the given problem. Graduate is familiarised with numerical methods and computational algorithms. Graduate will be successful in solving of the given simple problems.
The student has a basic overview of the use of computer models and simulations in scientific and technical practice.
The student is able to apply the knowledge, received during the study, specified in the part: Content of the syllabus.

Assessment methods and criteria
Interview, Test

To get the credits, the student must work out a paper on a given topic and pass the exam (an interview covering the topic of a paper, worked out by a student).
