Learning outcomes:

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • demonstrate individual creative thinking;
  • resolve specific work problems through the application of scientific methods and procedures;
  • demonstrate coherent mastery of basic knowledge and the capacity to integrate knowledge from various fields;
  • place new information and interpretations in the context of the fundamental discipline;
  • demonstrate understanding of the basic structure of the fundamental discipline and the links between its sub-disciplines;
  • demonstrate understanding of and apply the methods of critical analysis;
  • develop skills in the application of knowledge in a specific professional field;
  • use modern computer, information and communication technologies;
  • lead group work and demonstrate proficiency in communication both within an organisation and outside it;
  • find new sources of knowledge in the relevant professional and academic field;
  • incorporate the findings of other disciplines into the broader field of mechanical engineering;
  • take responsibility for managing highly complex work systems and develop a capacity for critical reflection;

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate mastery of knowledge in chosen specialist fields (e.g. power, process and environmental engineering, structural engineering, manufacturing technologies and systems, and computer modelling for engineering) and further develop that knowledge;
  • plan, construct, model, optimise, evaluate, manage, and build technologically complex products and systems that can potentially be offered in global markets;
  • develop and use research methods across a broad spectrum of problems and in this way respond rapidly to new circumstances in both national and international contexts;
  • master new technological procedures and processes;
  • find new solutions and use a research approach to the design and manufacture of products that are connected to new techniques and the most advanced technologies;
  • adopt a holistic approach to the development, manufacture and optimisation of products and installations, taking into account various factors such as functional properties, form, manufacture, assembly, economics, management, maintenance, environment.

Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

Progress:

In order to progress to the second year, students must complete first-year course units totalling at least 45 ECTS credits.
If a student fails to meet all progression requirements, the Studies Committee of the Senate of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering may approve enrolment in the second year at the student's request in accordance with the provisions of the Statute of the University of Maribor.
