Specific Arrangements for the Recognition of Prior Learning
Informal learning - max. 60% of credits gained in prior lifelong learning can be recognized, as determined by the Dean of the Faculty.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished higher education in Bachelor's degree programme.
Regulations:
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VŠB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Branch
Graduates are prepared for all activities necessary for the innovation and design of industrial and service robots and to their placement in production systems. A robot is a typical example of a relatively new understanding of technical systems, distinguished as mechatronic (dealing with mechanical systems automatically controlled and designed, defined as being considerably demanding in solving the problems of mechanics). Knowledge gained from the areas of designing industrial robots and manipulators, the peripheral equipment of robotized working places, from the fundamentals of constructing production machines and their automation, are only one area of the knowledge required for designing technical systems for mechatronics. The problems of control theory and control systems, sensors, software engineering, expert and database systems, control systems, electronics and drives belong to another area. The third area entails knowledge required for designing production systems by industrial robots, safeguarding the operation, maintenance, regulation and programming the robotized working place. Computer equipment is widely used during lessons in all these areas – for designing, constructing, programming, controlling and other areas, so that students obtain experience fully useable in other study branches. Graduates can then find employment as designers, builders, operational technicians, programmers, specialists for various areas of applying computer equipment – for example AutoCAD, but also for big CAD areas as well, covering in addition to design activities and projects the entire area of the technical preparation of production.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Graduates manage methods of work in the area of development of industrial and service robots and their applications with considerable use of mechatronics approach to the development of these complex technical systems. In the domain of theory of solving inventor's problems graduates learn the basic methodical procedures, in the domain of construction they obtain quite extensive knowledge about design and optimalization of mechanical subsystems with computer aid. In the domain of control and sensory systems, emphasis is laid on the up-to-date technical and SW means of control, environment perception and communication with human and in the domain of actuating subsystems it is knowledge of new electric, hydraulic and pneumatic drives and their applications.
