Forms of Teaching
Lectures are organized through 2 teaching cycles. The first cycle consists of 7 weeks of classes and mid-term exam, a second cycle of 6 weeks of classes and final exam. Classes are conducted through a total of 15 weeks with a weekly load of 2 hours.Exams
Examination consists of midterm exam and final exam.Consultations
After each lecture.Seminars
At the end of the second cycle of lectures, students self-made seminars which demonstrate the ability to connect theoretical knowledge about the materials used in electrical engineering products.Internship visits
During lectures students are organizing two technical visits to companies engaged in production and testing of electrical materials.
