Course aims:

- Assimilation by students of the physical sizes and fundamental laws that govern the phenomena of nature on a macroscopic scale with the purpose of basic intellectual training of the future electronic engineer;
- Training students to understand the problems of applicative nature in the technical fields from the point of view of the fundamental legalities of nature;
- Developing creative technical thinking by understanding and handling the concepts of physics that underpin modern measuring materials and devices
- Development of students' ability to operate with the concepts of mechanical physics, electricity and optics using the mathematical apparatus specific to the university level (functions of several variables, complex functions, differential operators, etc.);
- Initiation of future engineers in the development and use of physical models, as a practical way of extracting the essentials from a complex set of empirical phenomena;
