Assessment methods:
For awarding the credit is required a drawing of specific technical machine part. I tis required to pass two written tests successfully (1 - Engineering Technology, 2 - machine parts + physical basis techniques) with 60% success rate.
The test includes didactic test on the computer (min. 60% success rate) and an oral part, where the student draws two or three questions. It also examines the understanding of the training programs in the field of engineering.
