Improvement and Evaluation of the Study Process in Mechatronic Systems


Article Preview

This article analyses a Mechatronic Systems` (MS) study process connected with the more correspondent preparation process of engineering professionals in the faculty of Mechanics at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. The analysis and study highlighted aspects of the study process development and its implementation that would enable one at the same rate to prepare more qualified engineers. The authors suggest improving the MS study process for aspects of` practical implementation. Realization of this improvement also requires an appropriate development of the evaluation of the study process and its effectiveness. And this is also what the authors present in the article. Suggested improvement would not only help to develop contemporary MS studies but it could also be applied for the development of studies in other science areas.
