Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
To teach students to understand, identify and precisely define the binding interactions of biological and technical systems (biotech links) and use the knowledge of the principle of similarity of biological and technical components and systems using knowledge of interdisciplinary science Bionics. Acquaint them with the subject and the breakdown field, with its methodology and the main current trends of its development as well as the possibilities of practical application of the outputs of tasks based on bionics.
