Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • write technical reports on completed practical classes or a completed project/seminar,
  • give oral presentations of seminars,
  • find information online and use specific software tools

  • demonstrate understanding of the impact of human actions on the environment at various levels (local and global),
  • demonstrate understanding of the problem of environmental protection as an interdisciplinary problem, the management of which (in terms of prevention and remediation) requires familiarity with engineering, natural science, social science and other disciplines,
  • transfer and apply theoretical knowledge from the field of technical environmental protection in practice and solve problems, above all by seeking new sources of knowledge and applying scientific methods,
  • develop opportunities for communication within the discipline and across disciplines,
  • show initiative and autonomy in decision-making and in managing complex work,

(subject-specific competences)

  • construct and design technical and environmental systems,

  • demonstrate understanding of existing and effective new technological procedures and processes,
  • demonstrate understanding of and apply the methods of environmental analysis,
  • demonstrate knowledge of and use physical modelling of environmental phenomena,
  • demonstrate understanding of good management in environmental protection,
  • demonstrate knowledge of and use advanced waste water treatment processes, 
  • demonstrate knowledge of the impact of energy production on the environment and prevent the negative impact of these processes,
  • demonstrate knowledge of hazardous substances released into the environment,
  • demonstrate knowledge of legislation, strategies and control in environmental protection,
  • demonstrate understanding of transmission phenomena in environmental systems,
  • demonstrate understanding of the holistic approach to waste management,
  • plan management of groundwater as a source of drinking water,
  • plan management of waste water and treatment plant sludge,
  • plan the management and handling of waste,
  • address air protection through analysis of immission and emission parameters of anthropogenic sources,
  • incorporate the findings of other disciplines into the broader field of technical protection of the environment,
  • identify new information and interpretations in the context of the fundamental discipline,
  • demonstrate understanding of the basic structure of the fundamental discipline and the links between its sub-disciplines,
  • demonstrate understanding of the preparation and implementation of international environmental agreements,
  • demonstrate understanding of the organisation and implementation of national and local public environmental protection services.

Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

-

  • Matura or
  • vocational matura in any secondary school programme and an examination in one of the following matura subjects: mechanics, physics, mathematics, computing, electrical engineering, chemistry, biology, foreign language; the selected subject may not be a subject which the candidate has already taken in the vocational matura
