prerequisite
professional knowledge
to orientate himself in the knowledge of basic preparatory subjects of ghe general engineering education
to design technical products at the level of knowledge of machine desigh in bachelor's study
to understand the relationship between the construction structure of the product and its properties
to orientate himself in basic knowledge from theory (technical) systems
professional skills
to present the designing ideas in the form of sketches
to perform technical calculations in connection with the design of technical products
to work with the software MS Office
learning outcomes
professional knowledge
to identify a wider range of essential interdisciplinary properties of designed technical product, which are fundamental for its product-design competitiveness and are necessary for its product-buseness compotitiveness on the market
to specify the requirements for the proposed technical product in terms of its entire lifecycle
to evaluate the expected properties of the proposed technical product
professional skills
to perform the engineering design process with respect to the sub-optimal fullfilment of requirements on the mentioned properties of designed technical product and early evaluation of their predicted achievement
to perform the engineering design task in terms of the essential interdisciplinary properties of technical product as a comprehensive task
to apply software means to efficiently setting of requirements for a future technical product with respect of its lifecycle and to predict the future features of the proposed product
