Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Project work: Students, after acquainting with the work with Excel, ImageJ and Matlab, will always receive a partial assignment, aimed at the practice and consolidation of skills in the work with the given software. At the final exam, students will be given a complex assignment to address a particular material problem, taking advantage of the knowledge and skills acquired on this subject. The aim is to build on materials subject already undergraduate and to acquire practical techniques for solving material problems together computer technology.
Assesment methods and criteria: To complete this subject, students need to take part in all the exercises. In the course during at semester, students will elaborate and submit 4 homework aimed at practicing Excel, MATLAB and ImageJ skills, with a maximum of 5% for each of them.

The exam will be verbally presentation. Students need to introduce and explain the solution to a particular material problem and defend their solution. The second half of the exam will be a computer test.

In the overall assessment, assessments from homeworks, complex assignments and exams are added, with A being obtained at least 92%, at least 83% must be obtained for B, C at least 74%, C rating D is required to be at least 65%, E rated at least 56%. Credits will not be awarded to a student who does not meet the requirement for attendance at all exercises, will not award a prize, or will receive less than 56% of the total score.
Language of instruction: Slovak
Work placement(s): There is no compulsory work placement in the course unit.
