Planned learning activities and teaching methods

  • Lectures (traditional and interactive approach)
  • Laboratory and practical classes in the specialized laboratories
  • Interactive classes (business game, conference, and etc.)
  • Business game “Competition” (is conducted in a group of at least 15 people) - is to consolidate the theoretical material in a discussion of the main issues. The students can submit tasks done individually and get points.
  • Business game «Conference» (is conducted among students of the whole course). This is the final lesson for which students prepare a presentation on the proposed topic of the studied course. Opponents, provocateurs, speakers are elected. An observer that is elected by students and teacher, grades the activity of the opponents, provocateurs and speakers.
  • Essay, project work, calculating and graphical work
