THE COURSE IS DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS: "MAN", "SOCIETY AND ENVIRONMENT" AND "TECHNOLOGY". ALL THREE PARTS WERE ORIENTATED IN A PRACTICAL FASHION. THE RESULTS OBTAINED WERE ADJUDGED POSITIVE OVERALL, BUT NEGATIVE ASPECTS ARE FULLY DISCUSSED. THE DISADVANTAGES ARISING MAY BE OVERCOME EITHER IN THE LONG TERM OR SHORT TERM.

ONE METHOD OF FURTHER DEVELOPMENT IS CONTINUOUS PRACTICAL CHECKING.
