Profile of the Programme
The Bachelor’s degree program Applied Sciences and Technologies belongs to the university study programs. It offers a study of broad natural science rudiments in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, which is supplemented by fundamental engineering courses. A deeper theoretical foundation achieved due to higher number of hours allocated for the above-mentioned subjects will enable the undergraduates to consider an interdisciplinary context and use the acquired knowledge and skills in engineering applications creatively.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Knowledge:
The undergraduate has knowledge: - in mathematics covering topics of linear algebra, mathematical analysis, differential equations, partial differential equations, numerical methods, statistics, complex variable functions, optimization methods, discrete mathematics; - in physics covering topics of kinematics, mechanics of rigid bodies, oscillations, waves, thermodynamics, statics and dynamics of liquids and gases, the study of the electricity and magnetic fields, optics and fundamentals of nuclear physics, as well as the experimental measurement and evaluation of researched phenomena; - in chemistry covering topics of general chemistry, inorganic chemistry and physical chemistry including the basic knowledge of laboratory equipment and carrying out chemical experiments; - from technical courses focused on algorithms and programming, fundamentals of electronics, measurement and signal processing, sensor technology, automatic control, mechanics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, heat transfer, material sciences and testing.
Skills:
The undergraduate will be able to: - apply knowledge in mathematics, physics and chemistry to describe studied natural and physical phenomena, or to analyze, describe and calculate chemical reactions, etc. S/he will be able to solve mathematical tasks using analytical methods, as well as appropriate numerical methods. S/he will be able to create algorithms and to program the proposed procedures; - use methods and techniques of mathematical modeling of physical phenomena and processes focused on the tasks described by differential equations including the design of an adequate mathematical model; - apply methods of solving electrical circuits and describe their basic elements, explain the principles and possibilities of connecting basic semiconductor elements and to design simple electronic circuits, such as amplifiers, oscillators, stabilizers, etc.; - apply methods of mechanics, mechanics of elastic bodies, solve plane mechanisms and perform stress analysis; - characterize the most important properties of materials and define the procedures of their determination, define the basic parameters of the internal structure of solids. S/he will be able to assess the relationship between the structure of materials and their utility properties, to predict the possible kinds of material damage with respect to the internal structure; - propose, carry out and evaluate a basic laboratory experiment; - present and vindicate their professional opinions and the results of their experimental work.
General competencies:
A graduate of Bachelor’s degree program of Applied Sciences and Technologies has extensive natural science foundation needed for future engineering studies. Within the study of mathematics, physics, chemistry and related subjects, s/he acquires the knowledge needed for mastering the study of engineering methods in the follow-up Master’s degree programe. The graduate profile is completed by social-scientific courses providing knowledge in the field of engineering ethics and communication skills.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
The study program prepares students primarily for study in the follow-up Master's degree program. If a graduate of the Bachelor's degree study does not continue in the study, s/he may find employment as an assistant junior researcher, laboratory technician, laboratory specialist, lecturer, lecturer in science courses at universities, officer in the departments of administrative and management authorities, or programmer.
