Exam(s) and compulsory exercises. Detailed information is published in Moodle.


Topics of the course are basic knowledge of all engineer trades and most of them belong to SEFI's (The European Society for Engineering Education) Core Level 1. In that level most of the topics will be covered in the first year of engineering studies. Topics in Core Level 1 are essential for all engineers, because they are a base for the upcoming special know-how of each engineer trade. After completing the course, the students are able to continue to the master's mathematics course, where the topics belong to SEFI's Level 2.
