Examination methods

Final 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. explain anthropogenic impact on the environment and the role of reverse material flows in environmental protection

2. select recycling processes for overage resources

3. propose waste treatment processes of electrical and electronic equipment

4. determine the product recyclability degree

5. interpret legislation referring to electrical and electronic waste disposal

6. propose design guidelines for improvements in the field of recycling electrical and electronic devices
