|University:||Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava|
|Faculty:||Faculty of Materials Science and Technology in Trnava|
|Course unit code:||HLTE05_6I|
|Course unit title:||Extinguishing Agents and Technology|
|Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:|
|Recommended semester/trimester:||Integrated Safety - master (semi-compulsory), 2. semester|
Integrated Safety - master (semi-compulsory), 2. semester
|Level of study:||2.|
|Prerequisites for registration:||none|
|Minimum attendance at exercises 75% and lectures 50%. Designing a project by assignment. During the semester there will be two continuous written examinations (each of which is capable of gaining a maximum of 20 points, ie a maximum of 40 points for continuous examinations). The exam consists of a written answer to two theoretical questions (each of which is possible to obtain a maximum of 30 points, ie a maximum of 60 points from the exam). In the assessment, the points from both the part and the exam are counted. A score of at least 92 points is required to score A, score B is at least 83 points, score C is at least 74 points, score D is at least 65 points, and rating E is at least 56 points. Credits will not be awarded to a student who earns less than 56 points; he / she develops at an insufficient professional level or does not fulfill the minimum attendance at lectures or exercises.|
