Lecture is intended especially for students who intend to study some of the physical specializations of FNSPE(branch Physical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering). But it can be also attended by students interested in the otherspecializations. In Experimental laboratory students learn how to prepare for experiments (including work with theliterature), the implementation of the measurement (acquire of different experimental procedures and routines), willteach writing the records of measurement, processing and evaluation of results. At the same time practically extendthe knowledge gained in lectures on physics.
