Learning objectives:
  The main objectives are: To provide the students with clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics, in particular those used in electrical engineering, and to strengthen an understanding of these concepts and principles through a broad range of interesting applications.
  The course presents physical foundations of electrical engineering, i.e. both electronic and power engineering. Students receive an overview of fundamentals of mechanics of a mass point and a rigid body, electromagnetic field theory, oscillations, waves and optics. The last lecture deals with the introduction into quantum mechanics so that the students get acquainted with the existence of quantum phenomena and the basic tools for their description.
Knowledge and skills required for the course:
  The secondary school knowledge and pre-intermediate knowledge of English are required.
Learning outcomes and competences:
  The students understand basic physical concepts, laws, and processes. They are able to solve simple problems concerning these laws and processes, and can realize simple physical experiments.
Syllabus of lectures:
 Contents and methods of physics, SI system of units. Basic concepts: Mass and fields. Mathematical tools: Vector algebra and elements of differential and integral calculus. Mechanics of the mass point. Newton's laws, momentum, work, kinetic and potential energy. Introduction into the mechanics of a rigid body. Electric charge and electric field, Gauss' law of electrostatics. Electric potential and capacitance. Electric current and resistance. Ohm's law. Magnetic field due to an electric current. Action of magnetic fields on electric charges and on current-carrying conductors. Electromagnetic induction. Maxwell's equations. Oscillations. Harmonic oscillatory motion. Mathematical and physical pendulum. Damped oscillator. Resonance. Waves. Classification. Traveling mechanical waves. Energy and power in waves. Acoustic waves. Doppler's effect. Electromagnetic waves. Optics. Reflection and refraction of electromagnetic waves. Polarization. Interference and diffraction. Introduction to modern physics. Applications.

Controlled instruction:
  Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and practical laboratories. The course uses the support of an e-e-learning system, which is, however, used as a repository only. Students are required to write a homework (a single assignment) during the course. The evaluation includes the following components: 10 points - homework, 20 points - laboratories, 10 points - short test, 60 points - exam.
The extent of the evaluated education and the way in which the evaluation itself will be carried out are specified by a public regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
Progress assessment:
  A short test, evaluation of protocols submitted in laboratories and a written final exam.
