The subject is focused on project management and utilization of information systems in different stages of the project life cycle. After graduation the student will be able not only to schedule and to manage partial project stages but to apply complex knowledge acquired up to now and to use suitable software tools necessary to project realization of a power electrical equipment in the technical practice.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim of the subject is to provide students with the project management in electrical engineering and software tools using in different stages of the life cycle project. After graduation this subject students can know to schedule and manage the life cycle project, to use application software and to co-operate in teamwork.
