Department of Core Courses

The Department of Core Courses is the largest at the Faculty with respect to the number of courses, teaching hours and other activities related to the teaching process. Almost all core courses taught in the 1st and 2nd years of study are the responsibility of our Department, whose teachers statistically have the highest number of students.   

 

 

The Department of Core Courses is responsible for conveying fundamental knowledge and skills within the framework of the study programmes carried out at the Faculty. The Department collaborates with other departments in research activities and helps with the implementation of projects with the economy.  It consists of the Chair of Mathematics and Physics and the Chair of Mechanical Engineering and Foreign Languages.

It should be pointed out that the Department of Core Courses is the largest at the Faculty with respect to the number of courses, teaching hours and other activities related to the teaching process. Almost all core courses taught in the 1st and 2nd years of study are the responsibility of our Department, whose teachers statistically have the highest number of students.  

The teachers at the Department, especially those at the Chair of Mathematics and Physics participate in numerous projects conducted at other departments. Mathematicians help with various calculations or mathematical software tools, while physicists give assistance with modelling of physical relations when solving engineering and research problems. The Chair is also in charge of courses related to economics and management.

Staff employed at the Chair of Mechanical Engineering and Foreign Languages deals with modern technology of energy utilization, energy efficiency using ecological approaches to energy generation in modern plants and offers its services to domestic and international organizations whose activities concern energy generation. Foreign language teachers, on the other hand, contribute to Faculty’s work by translating and proofreading international and domestic projects, scientific and professional conferences, journals, etc. In the future the Department will contribute to science in general by active research work and will continue to improve the quality of the teaching process. Moreover, the Department plans to intensify its cooperation with colleagues from other departments, especially cooperation concerning publishing of scientific and professional papers, sharing knowledge on the latest trends in science, and joint participation in domestic and international conferences. Last but not least, the Department carries out physical education classes for all students.
