Examination methods

Seminar paper and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. describe the elements of a control supervisory system

2. define standard signals of a control supervisory system

3. understand working principle, characteristics and way of using process instrumentation in process and power measurement

4. fill in qustionary sheet of mesurement device and using software tools for device selection

5. understand working principle, characteristics and way of using process instrumentation in process and power plants

6. to implement data telemetry technology in supervisory and control systems

7. to integrate sensor and actuator devices in automation control
