Intended learning outcomes

General goals

The course should promote a natural science perspective and give an understanding of basic physics concepts and relationships and give a good basis for further studies within physics and technical subjects that are included in the 3- and 5-year engineering programmes.

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

  • Carry out, describe, analyse and present experiments to examine physical phenomena which are discussed in the course.
  • Apply basic physics models and concepts to identify, analyse and solve physics problems within the scope of the course content and report the solutions to a structured way.
