Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The objective of the course Project 1a is to practice with students the methodology of problem solving in the project team. Competencies gained in this course: • Ability of complex problems solving in project teams • Ability to analysis the assignment, decomposition of problem assignment • Ability to work effectively with information sources • Ability to ask missing information • Ability to plan the project • Ability to assign the tasks to project team members • Ability to manage project team • Ability to communicate in project team • Ability to document the problem solving procedure These skills students will practice on typical projects from the application area addressed by the study program Information Technology for the digital world

Summary

The main motivation of this course is to practice with students how to think about problems and their solutions like engineers. For today's industry is very typical to work in project teams – this course is organised this way. Based on analysis of assignment understanding the decomposition of solved problem will be provided, project team will define the project activities interface and plan the project solving using assignment of some project activities to each member of project team. Students should learn by working in project teams how to solve engineering projects (problems) in the application area defined by their study program. In this phase the focus will be oriented to starting of effective communication in project team and to asking of missing information in the form of invited lectures of other teachers and to starting of systematic documentation of project solving.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

The continuous control of knowledge during the semester will be performed through discussion of the documented outcomes in the various project solving phases presented by a team of students. The quality of these outputs will be scored assessed as part of the overall assessment of the subject.
