Physics course will allow students to acquire and strengthen knowledge in these branches of physics: mechanics, thermodynamics, alectromagnetic field and solid state physics. We focus on solid theoretical bases, but independent work in student labs as well as solving practical examples are also important parts of the course. Through the course we also touch the limits of the classical Physics.
