The goal Students should master the basic principles of mechanics with oscillations and waves studied in more detail. Elements of geometrical and physical optics will give students base to understand modern opto-electronic devices. The elements of thermodynamics will help students to understand chip heat dissipation.
The outcome Students will understand the basics of Physics and will be able to model and solve problems.
