CNR 2012: Participants: Czech Technical University (CZE)

Nowadays one of the biggest challenges in educational process in technical universities is to attract young people to the study. Many of them do not mind to study the subjects like robotics or control engineering but they would like to avoid the subjects like mathematics or physics or even control theory.

Since the beginning of the school year 2009/10, new bachelor's program Cybernetics and Robotics offers the compulsory subject A3B99RO Robots in the first semester of study. This is a completely new type of subject provided jointly by three Departments (of Control Engineering, Cybernetics, and Measurements) at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague (FEE CTU).

The course with a limited number of lectures supporting essential theoretical knowledge is focused mainly on independent laboratory work. The lectures are alternated by the departments mentioned above with laboratory exercises running in parallel. The assistants are supplied in laboratory teaching by promising and experienced master program students strengthening the concept of "learning by teaching".

The main goal of the subject is to raise the interest of the young students in further study of control engineering as well as to show, in a friendly way, necessity of theoretical backgrounds.
