Learning activities and teaching methods
Activating (simulations, games, drama)
  • Preparation for classes - 90 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 50 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The subject is seen as a "bridge" between the theoretical teaching automation and practical applications. The solution to the task at individual workplaces student is aware of the different types of analog and digital control and gain first practical experience for their future construction activity. Students develop and try out simple tasks in the field of regulation and control. For example, regulators, heat, moisture, etc. Students submit a complete working model of the selected task.
Prerequisites and co-requisites basic knowledge of mathematical analysis up to partial differential equations
Basic knowledge of mathematical analysis of complex variable.
