Course detail

Selected Lectures on Mathematics

FEKT-MPA-SLMAcad. year: 2023/2024

The proposed course is a compulsory basic theoretical course profiling the basis, which focuses on the use of selected mathematical methods in the field of space technology. It provides not only a theoretical apparatus for the design and implementation of space applications, but also their practical verification in simulations. The Matlab programming environment will be used for this purpose.

Language of instruction


Number of ECTS credits


Mode of study

Not applicable.

Entry knowledge

Mathematical subjects and knowledge , including the basics of statistics and signal processing, are required.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

In general:
- obtaining credit on the basis of a test for 16 points and active participation in exercises for 14 points (max. 30 points, min. 15 points),
- Written parts of the final exam (max 70 points, minimum 35 points)
The definition of the controlled education and the way of its implementation are stipulated by the updated guarantor's annual regulation.


The aim of the course is to present to students a specialized mathematical-statistical apparatus, which is important for understanding and interconnecting the principles of electrical and mechanical systems and practical verification of acquired skills.
After completing the course, students should be able to independently solve problems associated with mathematical modeling, verification and testing of designs for space applications.
