Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2017-18


This basic course is a continuation of Fundamentals of Engineering Physics I, and the introduction to Fundamentals of Engineering Optics.

This course introduces the basic concepts of OSCILLATIONS, WAVES AND

ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES, which are the backbone of Telecommunications. This course provides insight knowledge into the basic principles of operation of new technologies.

The course consists of different activities: theoretical lectures, exercises and laboratory experiences.
