Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
Physics as a science of the laws of natural phenomena is the basis of technical sciences and therefore also mechanical engineering. It results in a number of basic technical disciplines. The aim is to deepen the knowledge of students from secondary education to master other university applications.
Students will acquire basic knowledge in the field of infinitesimal calculus in the sense that they will be able to solve special problems and problems of the real world independently using differential and integral calculus of functions of one variable and thus understand the role of mathematics in physical and technical applications.
