Learning Outcomes

After the course, a student understands the behaviour of the basic electronic components, as well as the most common electronic circuits of theirs. (S)he can apply the theoretical knowledge of electronics in analysis of application-related circuits and in design of component-based electronics.

Student's Workload

81 h, which contains 30 h of contact studies. The assessment of student’s own learning 1 h is included in contact lessons.
The assessment of student’s own learning 1 h is included in contact lessons.
