The course is devoted to an introduction to the engineering profession. Students will gradually learn the characteristics and specialties of engineering work, including an overview of the basics of selected engineering disciplines, such as the basics of materials science, manufacturing technology, quality control and assurance and ecology. Further, the course will focus on some issues of R&D activities organization and on selected parts of technical drawings and the work with AutoCAD code.
