Completed e-tutorial is a prerequisite for entering the exam. Written exam (60%), Oral presentation of selected topics and active class participation (40%).
To be able to communicate successfully in a specific subject area, one needs general English as well as subject-specific language and communication skills. Accordingly, the course English in logistics 1 focuses on developing logistics and transport vocabulary and business communication skills. Lectures are dedicated to developing writing, speaking, listening and reading skills through the exploration of authentic materials and case studies. Vocabulary and communication skills are developed in the framework of the following topics: history and development of logistics, careers in logistics and modes of transport (road, rail, air and water).
Although the main focus of the course is development of business vocabulary and communication skills, we will also revise and further develop knowledge and use of fundamental grammatical structures, including English verb tenses, adjectives and adverbs, modal verbs and relative clauses.
Vocabulary and skills gained in this course will prove useful to students who will engage in business communication in organisations involved in international transport of goods and services or international business.

With the subject Mechatronics systems in logistics, students are acquainted with knowledge from the field of mechatronic and electromechanical systems and the application of gained knowledge in the analysis of these systems.
Understanding mechatronic and electromechanical systems from the field of: – Statics and strength (force models, active and passive forces, moment of a force couple, force reduction, centres of gravity of bodies, friction on flat surface and discs, beams, trusses, mixed systems, stresses and deformations, Hook’s Law). – Kinematics and kinetics (velocity and acceleration, relative motion, D’Alemebrt’s principle, theorem on motion of mass centre, motion and rotation quantity and mechanical energy, impulsive motion and collision, dynamics of bodies with changeable mass). – Mechanics of liquid (Euler equation for motion of an ideal liquid, rotating vessel, laminar and turbulent flow and different types of waste). – Oscillations (meaning and creations of mechanical oscillations, basic elements of the oscillating systems, harmonic oscillation, forced oscillation of damped systems, resonance). – Electrical engineering (electric tension and electrical potentials, capacitor, capacitance, Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s Laws, Joule’s Law, magnetic field of a linear conductor, Faraday’s Law of electromagnetic induction, single- and multi-phase systems, electrical measurements, electrical engines and transformers, electrical equipment and devices). – Electronics (semiconductors, semiconductor diodes, transistor, digital systems, microprocessors, sensors and actuators, bar code and RFID).
will allow students to solve practical problems of the profession in the areas of mechatronics systems. Students will upgrade their knowledge gained from lectures with tutorials exercises and laboratory work. With the help of analytical expressions and derivations they will solve mechatronic and electromechanical systems in logistics.
