Strives to get to know and routinely use the tools needed for energy management and economic problem solving. Develops your ability to provide accurate and error-free problem solving, engineering precision and accuracy. Applies the principles of energy efficiency, sustainability and environmental awareness in solving energy management tasks. Monitors changes in the social, economic and political system. Publishes his results in accordance with his professional rules. Publishes its opinions and views without offending others.
Independence and responsibility
Collaborates with the instructor and fellow students to expand knowledge. Accepts well-founded professional and other critical remarks. In some situations, as part of a team, works with fellow students to solve tasks. With possesed knowledge, makes a responsible, well-founded decision based on own analyzes. Feels responsible for energy, the problems of energy management and the sustainable use of the environment, as well as present and future generations. Committed to the principles and methods of systematic thinking and problem solving.
The course is divided into a series of two-hour lectures per week and the related one-hour practice per week. The lectures basically introduce the students to the required material using the technique of frontal education. Presentation material (slide show) - supplemented with questions and answers from the lectures will be available after the lectures. Independent practical sessions with a different theme from the lectures and the mirrored classroom method promote the application and skill-level acquisition of knowledge. During the exercises, the knowledge previously acquired at home, independently, is solved partly jointly and partly individually with the help of the practice leader. The presentation that can be made during the semester serves to develop independent work skills.

|End of validity:||2025. December 31.|
Learning outcomes are assessed on the basis of two mid-year summary written and one partial performance measurement. Summarizing academic performance evaluation: a complex, written way of evaluating the competence-type competence elements of the subject and knowledge in the form of an indoor dissertation, the dissertation focuses on the application of the acquired knowledge, so it focuses on problem recognition and solution, on the other hand, asks for the necessary lexical knowledge during the performance appraisal, the working time available is 90 minutes; Partial performance evaluation (homework): a complex way of evaluating the knowledge, ability, attitude, as well as independence and responsibility type competence elements of the subject, the form of which is the presentation of an individually prepared presentation.
Detailed description of mid-term assessments
|Mid-term assessment No. 1|
|Purpose, description:||Summative assessments collectively examine and assess students ’learning outcomes defined by knowledge and ability type competencies. Accordingly, each summative assessment assesses the acquisition of the designated theoretical knowledge as well as the existence of knowledge and the application of skills acquired in practice. Each summative assessment focuses 65% on theoretical knowledge and 35% on application skills. They will be completed on the date specified in the academic performance assessment plan, scheduled for the 8th and 14th weeks of education. Each of the two summary performance evaluations can earn 40-40 points.|
|Mid-term assessment No. 2|
|Type:||formative assessment, project-based, complex|
|Purpose, description:||The basic aim of the partial performance assessment is to examine the existence of attitudes and learning outcomes belonging to the autonomy and responsibility competence group. The way to do this is to create a lecture that can only be done individually and then a presentation in front of the practical group. The topic of the tasks can be chosen arbitrarily using literature sources, but it is also possible to choose individual topics by prior arrangement. The chosen topics must be finalized by the seventh week of education. You can get up to 20 points with this task. The preparation of the task is coordinated by the lecturer or practice leader, if necessary he consults with the creator and checks it before the lecture.|
