HUT / Department of Engineering Physics and Mathematics / Advanced Energy Systems / Courses and Seminars 1997
The laboratory of Advanced Energy Systems is responsible for a wide variety of courses. While the emphasis is on courses with quite highly specialized topics, the selection includes also a few mandatory, basic physics courses. In addition to lecture-type courses, we also offer three laboratory courses and several seminar-type courses, both of which develope skills directly relevant to ‘real life’: searching for information independently, documentation skills, and presenting complicated issues in a comprehensive manner.
The amount of work involved in a given study module is expressed in study credit units (cr), the value of which is shown in parenthesis for each study module. One cr signifies about 40 hours of effective work by an average student, i.e. one week of full-time study.
S = spring semester, F = fall semester, L = lectures, C = coordination, R = recitations.
