Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.


After the course the student
1. knows how to carry out advanced experimental physics under guidance,
2. knows how to use a variety of instruments and techniques used in research and development,
3. is able to apply physics theory into practice,
4. knows how to deal with the measurement results in a scientific manner and to present them in tables and graphs,
5. is able to write a clear and consistent measurement report.
