Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To students newly enrolled at the Faculty of Safety Engineering it is very important to make themselves acquainted, in the framework of the course, with a wide range of fields of study and subsequent applications in practice after passing the chosen field of study. The selection of the field of study in relation to student’s skills and ideas of implementation makes it possible to increase subsequently the professional level of graduates and simultaneously, on this assumption, also the overall improvement of the curriculum. The fundamental objective of the course is not only to familiarize, at the very beginning, the students with the internal regulations, student statute, study and examining regulations, but also to show the students optimal ways of achieving the highest possible standard.
