Summary
The subject complements the subjects of the Bachelor's degree program dealing with industrial automation, in particular Programmable Controllers and Humen Machine Interfaces and Industrial Robotics 1. The lectures are focused on the practical use of selected means of industrial automation. In particular, these are advanced techniques for working with programmable controllers, functional safety and examples of industrial robot applicatio. In laboratory trainings students apply the knowledge gained during the lectures.
During the semester, the students solve a complex project on a selected topic related to the subject's content.
