    The goal Mastering physical concepts related to optics, atomic, nuclear and semiconductor physics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics through familiarization with operational principles of optical, electronic, thermo- and hydrodynamic devices and nuclear facilities for applications in sensors, ICT, imaging, measurements, energy sources and conversion. Positioning physics in modern electrical engineering.
    The outcome Understanding the nature of light and its role in sensors and in ICT. Mastering the basics of 20th-century physics through the application of semiconductor devices and atomic radiation. Acquiring basic engineering skills in the calculation of fluid flow, power of pumps and turbines, application of thermodynamic cycles. Awareness of global pollution and future global energy sources.
