Title of the subject: Testing and Inspection in Automobile Production
Semester_of_study (WT – winter/ST – summer): WT
Learning outcomes: The graduate will gain the necessary insight and quality knowledge of automotive testing. Students will acquire knowledge of modern methods, processes and impact of testing on the processes of development, production and innovation of cars and their components. Upon successful completion of the training process, the graduate will be able to design a suitable method for testing the selected component or testing automotive component manufacturing process. Graduate of the subject acquires the necessary prerequisites for independent work in designing test equipment and will be able to propose modern testing procedures for automotive production.
