Learning outcomes: Learning outcomes: In the terms of knowledge: A student is aware of the fact how to combine and use the knowledge gained so far, including, among others, economy, agricultural technology and technique, as well as crop production. A student possesses theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of designing modern crop technologies with the use of up - to - date progress achievements in the realm of breeding, industry and organization. In the trms of skills: A student can obtain information on the literature and, data base, as well as to combine, interpret and apply them in designing a technological process of selected crop growing. A student can prepare a design of leading crop technologies, in the form of a presentation/ project, taking into account an appropriate selection of machines and industrial means of production. He is also able to assess nutritional and energetic value of harvested yields. In the terms of social competences: A student understands the need and knows the possibilities continuous updating of skills. A student acts as a professional. He knows and follows the rules of professional ethics.
