Learning outcomes
Předat studentům detailnější znalosti o optických zobrazovacích systémech, jejich konstrukčních variantách, metodách konstrukčních návrhů, hodnocení kvality zobrazení a určování konstrukčních tolerancí.
After successful completion of the course the student is capable of independently analyze computationally design of optical systems of different types and different technologies designed. He is also able to design new simpler optical systems (lenses, eyepieces, binoculars, etc.). Student knows the procedures and work with a specialized optical software OSLO.
Knowledge of the course Optical Elements (OPT/OPR).

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral exam, Systematic Observation of Student, Seminar Work
