  • Fundamental principles, basic units and their correlation
  • Appliance classes, safety regulations and precautions
  • Electronic components (active/passive, linear/non-linear, discrete/integrated)
  • Basic circuits
  • Dimensioning of (very) simple circuits
  • Controlling LEDs, motors, sensors
  • Operational safety & reliability of electrical circuits for exhibitions

Examination Modalities

For the successful completion of the course the following criteria will be used:

  • Constant and punctual participation (min. 70% attendance, 50% of the grade)
