Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student will be able to

  • Analyze the conditions in simple circuits such as DC, AC and transient events of the first order.
  • Use a microcontroller to solve simple tasks such as controlling the voltage to an electric DC-motor.
  • Design a digital design to solve a combinatorial problem.
  • Estimate the deviations in the measurement results.
  • Connect simple electrical circuits.
  • Connect electric measuring instruments such as multimeter and oscilloscopes to simple electrical circuits. Performing measurements with these instruments.
  • Experimentally determine the current-voltage-characteristics of a device or component.
  • Determine whether the various electrical devices and components can be connected.
  • Solve simple problems and show the solution function by performing an experiment.
  • Give a short oral presentation about the outcome of an experiment or a laboratory exercise.
  • Translate the substance technical terms into English.
  • Work constructively in a group of 2-3 persons with laboratory and experimenta.

All together you will be able to 

  • facilitating active cooperation with specialists in electrical engineering
  • provide a basis for further studies in this area.
