Course abstract

Course of physics is mastered within lectures, practice works and individual studies. Physics basic knowledge gives essential concepts and critical understanding of how to use it in real-world process description.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

After completing the course students will have:
• knowledge about regularity of essential concepts of physics and critical understanding of how to use it in real-world process description;
• skills to use measurements of physical quantities and apply knowledge in calculation for their branch of research, summarize and analytically describe the results;
• competence to evaluate results of measurements and calculations, problem solving and understand what influence their professional activities have on environment.
