Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
Physics, as a science of the laws of natural phenomena, is the basis of the technical sciences. The aim is to deepen the knowledge of students from secondary education to master other university applications. The course provides an overview of basic physical knowledge in relation to technical (engineering) physics. The topics are chosen so that the student acquires basic physical knowledge of the mechanics of bodies and fluids.
Knowledge of basic physical phenomena, in the field of classical mechanics, oscillations and waves. Understanding of general physical phenomena, ability to apply knowledge in practical cases.
