5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

The purpose is theoretical and practical training of students, familiarization with the principles of using the electromagnetic phenomena in the technology, enforcement the methods of analysis and calculation of electrical circuits, electrical apparatus and electrical systems. Successful mastering the course will allow students to deeply master a number of special disciplines that will be studied later.

The place of academic discipline in the structural and logical scheme of study according to the educational program

Prerequisites. List of disciplines, or knowledge and skills, possession of which students needed (training requirements) for successful discipline assimilation
