Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, 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 this course, students get familiar with

  • Basic models and analysis methods of electronic circuits, e.g., Kirchhoff laws and Thevenin's theorem
  • Basic component blocks in electronic circuits such as small direct-current circuits and operational amplifiers.
  • Basic practical skills to implement simple electronic circuits and to measure their properties.
