Mode of delivery:
20 % facetoface, 80 % distance learning


Prerequisites:
 The student should know the calculations with complex numbers.
 The student should be able to use the Kirchhoffs laws – practically, with a clear insight to a concrete circuit situation.
 The student should know the practical approach to the theoretical solution of linear circuits (sequential simplification, superposition principle, replacement of a voltage source with a serial resistance by a current source with the parallel resistance or in the opposite way, Thevenins theorem). He should know to choose the most advantageous method in each situation and to use it, what needs training. He should understand that the loop current or node voltage methods are simple mechanically applicable however they lead to a system of linear equations whose solving is to heavy going and slow and therefore noneffective for handmade circuit analysis.
 The student should understand the geometrical interpretation of terms derivation, definite/indefinite integral. He must be able to draw a function created as a derivation or an integral of any previously drawn function – for example a constant, rectangle shape, linear growing etc. He must understand concretely the practical meaning of the integration constant.
