Programme structure

Extended practice

Unique structure of the Programme – 3 consecutive semesters students will carry out practice in production companies.

Programme applicability

Certification possibility

The content of discrete modules is reviewed and constructed according to the proposals of companies that carry out training for certification, so students are prepared to take examinations for certification in work safety field.

Soft skills

Innovative and project skills

Studies in „Product development project“ is based on innovation development concept and enable students to master the competencies of team working in interdisciplinary group, innovation management, entrepreneurship and communication. This product development project emphasizes competence based learning „from idea to product“, is built upon project-based activities and solving the real issues of companies.


Active involvement of social partners in study process

Topic for final degree projects are suggested by the social partners. They actively participate in modules as guest lecturers, supervise the process of student internship in the companies, help developing a study programme and act as a career mentors. The graduates may specialized their skills according to the needs of social partners’ companies that propose internship places for students.


Usage of information technologies in automation engineering

Students will learn to draw and project with AutoCAD and SOLIDWORKS software, to programme different devices (e.g. CNC machine), will obtain knowledge on cyber physics systems, internet of things. They will be introduced to the application of artificial intellect and cloud engineering in the industrial production control.
