- Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering
In this course, students will be introduced with selected engineering psychology and cognitive science, and will, in mutual creative discussion, integrate it in a meaningful whole. In addition familiarize students with interesting topics of modern science and techniques (such as deterministic chaos, emergentism, holonic and multi-agent systems and very young science discipline of Cognitive Science), will also create space for thinking about scientific and technical issues
across disciplines and also their interpretation of the intercepts mutual integration. Last but not least, the subject will spread technical considerations for people. Completes the course will be introduction to modern theories of science and their critical evaluation.
Active participation on seminars, semestral work elaboration
