Abstract

The course Technical Mathematics was introduced during the academic year of 2006/2007 at the College of Dunaújváros. I compare the course with those courses taught at a time period preceding the introduction of the new course. I examine what kind of changes happened in the average grades by contracting several courses and forcing the students to accomplish a similar course curriculum within a shorter time period. With statistics, I illustrate the success of the course. I examine the syllabus of the course in terms of its achievability, and investigate and analyze the students’ workload. With the help of the analysis of the results of the students – the ‘learning outcomes’ –, I search for solutions and compensations to provide better achievability of the course. At the time of this lecture I can present only a summary of the results of the national survey carried out during the Fall term, I supplement it later with the results themselves, which are connected to the topic of my future Ph.D. thesis. Using the viewpoint of ECTS, I examine the structure of the syllabus, and propose innovations in methodology.
