Requirements for awarding credit points

Accumulative test.
Executed practical tasks, draw:
1. Simple electronics scheme;
2. Complex electronics scheme;
3. Wiring plan for the object;
4. Power scheme for electric drive or power supply;
5. Create your own schema label set based on EN standards.
There should be developed and defended all the practical tasks.

Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

During the practical classes the students continue to solve the tasks independently until the qualitative result is achieved (the result is evaluated during the next practical classes), the amount of work is 48h.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

All practical tasks are qualitatively fulfilled: 1. Drawing technology learned; 2. Ability to handle software; 3. Proper use of standards; 4. Acquired technical documentation and scheme for reading skills; 5. Careful work and attitude.
