5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

This course covers theoretical and practical design of machine parts and simple systems. Includes the integration of the basic engineering disciplines necessary for proper analysis, synthesis and design of structures, simple machines or processes, including screws, springs, bearings and gearing. Establishment of design criteria based on stress and fatigue analysis and on experimental results, statistical considerations, materials, steady and variable loading.

6. Policies and assessment process of the academic discipline

Assessment methods and rating system of learning results assessment

In each semester the current control consists of two modules, where the theoretical part is 20 points, the practical part - 17-18 points.
In the fifth semester, the form of final control is a test.
In the sixth semester, the form of final control is an exam.

Table of assessment scores:
