Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main goal of the specialized field training is to apply the project teaching into practice. Students have the opportunity to test their theoretical knowledge acquired during their studies and expand the practical skills and knowledge they acquire under the guidance of experts from various fields. Students will learn to work with professional sources and, above all, they will be guided to critical thinking and classification of acquired information. In the final day, students present the results of their projects. Exercise supports soft skills.
