To be able to communicate successfully in a specific professional area, one needs general English as well as field-specific language and communication skills. Accordingly, the course English in logistics 1 focuses on developing logistics and transport vocabulary and professional 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 professional vocabulary and communication skills, we will also revise and further develop knowledge and use of fundamental grammatical structures, including English verb tenses and adjectives and adverbs.
Vocabulary and skills gained in this course will prove useful to students who will engage in professional communication in organisations involved in international transport of goods and services or international business.

In the framework of the curse Fundamentals of mechatronics in logistics, students are acquainted with basic knowledge from the field: – Statics (Force in the Cartesian coordinate system, internal and external forces, the balance of forces, moment, Varignon’s theorem, moment of a force couple, concentrated force or point loads, continuous loads, friction at the surface and discs). – Strength (tension vector on the surface, the relationship between stresses and deformations, normal and shear specific deformations, Hooke’s law, Young’s modulus, shear modulus, base load, tension, pressure, surface pressure, bending, moment of inertia, shear, torsion, stability problems). – Kinematics and kinetics (displacement, velocity, acceleration, uniform motion, uniformly accelerated motion, circular motion, angular acceleration, angular momentum, work, power, energy, collision, motion of bodies with variable mass). – Mechanics of driving (Mechanical model of the vehicle, forces and resistances in the movement of the vehicle, brakes, vehicle on the convex and concave surface, protecting cargo against slipping and tipping). – Electrical engineering (electrostatic, direct electric current, alternating electric current, electric motors). – Electronics (electronic circuits, microprocessors, sensors, bar code, RFID).
The subject is also designated to gain practical experience in the field of mechanics, measurement techniques and the operation of electrical devices and electronic circuits. Students will upgrade their knowledge gained from lectures with tutorials exercises and laboratory work, which address industrial mechanical and electrical engineering problems (tasks) in logistics.
