For three or more enrolled students teaching is performed in the form of 4 hours lecture blocks, a total of 20 hours of lectures. The time of the lectures is set at agreement with the students. Each student will elaborate and present the project requiring solution of engineering problem.

In case of one or two enrolled students there will be individual consultations to the study materials and to the preparation of the project.
