ECTS credits

An ECTS credit value has been added according to calculation of time required for studying and successful course completion.

Examination methods

Written or revision exams and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. define basic physical quantities in the electric and magnetic field (charge, electric field, magnetic field, potential, voltage) and electrical circuit (current, voltage, power, electrical resistance, inductance, capacitance, mutual inductance).

2. Use basic physical laws, mathematical expressions and models for solving simple problems in electrical and magnetic fields, magnetic circuits and real DC circuits containing resistors and capacitors in a steady state.

3. Apply Kirchhoff's laws to solve DC circuits consisting of linear elements in a steady state

4. Apply basic physical laws of electric and magnetic fields to solving simple problems of electric and magnetic fields and simple magnetic circuits

5. Analytically and numerically solve the mathematical models of DC electric circuits containing linear elements in steady state by using Kirchhoff's laws and magnetic circuits with and without a ferromagnetic core

6. Connect a real simple electric DC circuit

7. Measure basic electrical quantities in DC circuits
