Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Students will be required to prepare a presentation on ecological engineering topics. Most of the examples will be case studies from around the world to illustrate the application of ecological engineering. Student will also attend an open discussion session. 60% of project classes in the form of e-learning. The project exercise rating takes into account: the activity, the substantive value of the paper and the quality and manner of its presentation.Participation in lectures is not obligatory, however, the activity in lectures can be rewarded by raising the final grade. A prerequisite to take the exam is to provide the reporter with a mandatory project. Passing the project must be obtained on a basic date (one date) until the end of the given semester. It is allowed to pass the exercises in one correction period. Presence on project exercises is obligatory. If the student has left more than 25% of the project exercises, he would not be allowed to pass exam. Excluded absences from classes can be made with another group, but only on the condition of the teacher’s consent.
The exam in the subject takes place in writing and covers the content given in lectures. The exam takes place in one basic and one correction period. Positive rating can not be improved.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Participation in the lectures is not obligatory, however, the activity at the lectures can affect the increase of the final grade.
  • Project classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Presence on project exercises is obligatory. If the student has left more than 25% of the project exercises, he will not be admitted to the exam. Excused absences on exercises can be made up with another group, but only on condition consent of the teacher.
Method of calculating the final grade:

The final grade is average grade from tests of the lectures (weight 0.4) and project classes (weight 0.6).

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

If the student has left more than 25% of the project exercises, he would not be allowed to pass exam. Excluded absences from classes can be made with another group, but only on the condition of the teacher’s consent.
The exam in the subject takes place in writing and covers the content given in lectures. The exam takes place in one basic and one correction period. Positive rating can not be improved.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Knowledge of the basic laws of physics. Knowledge of mathematics at the technical level of a university.
