    The goalThe course was designed to provide fundamental knowledge in the field of modern physics, which had an undeniable influence on the development of new engineering and scientific disciplines. Students are introduced to basic concepts in electrostatics, stationary electric currents, electromagnetism, electromagnetic oscillations and electromagnetic waves, geometric optics, wave optics, photometry, atomic physics, nuclear physics, and quantum physics.
    The outcomeIntroducing students with physical laws and phenomena of relevance to engineering practice. Developing the necessary analytical abilities of students for the application of physical laws in understanding and solving engineering problems.
