Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
All first-year subjects. Among them, Calculus I, Calculus II and Physics II are of utmost importance.
By the end of this content area, students will be able to have: 1. A systematic understanding of the key aspects and concepts of electrical engineering; 2. Awareness of the wider multidisciplinary context of engineering. 3. The ability to apply their knowledge and understanding to identify, formulate and solve electrical engineering problems using established methods; 4. The ability to design and conduct appropriate experiments, interpret the data and draw conclusions; 5. Workshop and laboratory skills. 6. The ability to combine theory and practice to solve electrical engineering problems.

Learning activities and methodology
Basic theoretical concepts that students need learning to understand the subject will be explained in online master classes. Within the master class will be solved simple exercises that will help settling theory explained in each session. To make optimum use of the master class, it woulll be advisable to know which topics will be presented consulting on schedule. Likewise, the students should have worked on those topics before classes. Small classes in which the nearest student learning track will be done. These sessions will assess the skills acquired during the previous lectures and weekly work of students. Work, exercises and small daily examinations may be proposed. Along the course, three tests will be done on the days fixed in the schedule. There will be three practice sessions of laboratory in which the implementation of theoretical concepts will be worked. There are few specific times for tutorials and consultations of students. At the discretion of the teacher, tutoring outside that time period may be fixed if a student requests it.
