Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will be able to formulate the basic principles of automation of metallurgical aggregates, to identify the characteristics of metallurgical production aggregates, to demonstrate the functions of the different ways of control of metallurgical production aggregates, and to apply the problems of automation of metallurgical production aggregates in practice. An important role will be the understanding and implementation of the Industry 4.0 concept in the management of industrial enterprises.
