      The goal Getting acquainted with the basic principles of engineering related to understanding and defining a problem to be solved, the approach to solving the problem, as well as the characteristic phases and features of the process. Through the identification of problems and challenges encountered in the application of acquired knowledge, a better understanding of the engineer's position will be acquired.
      The outcome Better insight and understanding of standard engineering practices through the prism of topics encountered in the field of electronics, and student motivation for further improvement and knowledge acquisition.
