First Year


First year is intended to provide basic knowledge as Mathematics, Physics, Programming Languages and so on.

1st Year CURRICULUM

Mathematics

Math is the language of science. As future electronic engineers, we learn to describe and model the physical world using mathematical equations. This course contains the study of integrals, differential equations, concepts of limit, continuity and differentiability, Euler equations, systems of linear differential equations, the theory of functions of complex variables, Laplace transform, Fourier transform, Fourier series and half-range representations.

Physics

The goal of this course is to present the fundamental laws of physics and the most important physical phenomena of electronics engineering. Laboratory activity consists in practical experiments, in order to develop students’ practical skills. Seminary activity takes into account the development of the students’ skills for exercise solving.

Applied Informatics 1

Students get acquainted with basic Internet terminology (browsers, SEO, e-mail, social media and Internet applications). Students acquire basic knowledge and skills for designing web pages (HTML, CSS, Javascript and XML). Students become aware of advantages new web technologies bring, improve their technical background and build a successful career in engineering and IT.

Applied Informatics 2

Applied Informatics 2 provides basic notions on microcontroller programming, a field which is currently expanding due to the accessibility, the versatile exploitation and the relatively low costs of microcontrollers. The lectures present general theoretical information on reprogrammable electronic circuits, such as microcontrollers, microprocessors, FPGAs and GALs.

Computer-Aided Graphics

The Computer Aided Graphics course aims at introducing the fundamentals of computer aided design tools used in electronic engineering. It discusses aspects related to the use of electronic component symbols, schematic design, printed circuit board manufacturing technologies and basic printed circuit board design techniques with applications based on the Cadence OrCAD design platform.

Computer Programming and Programming Languages

This course introduces students to the structure and operation of computers, to the analysis and design of computer algorithms, essentials of data structures and special programming techniques with emphasis on numerical methods applied in electronic engineering. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to demonstrate a familiarity with major data structures specific for C Language, write complex projects in C language and use the C Standard Library.

Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering

This is a fundamental course in circuit analysis in such a manner that is clear, interesting, and easier to understand. It introduces the general concepts in electricity, covers the fundamental laws and theorems and brings out the circuit analysis techniques.

Electronics Materials, Passive Devices and Circuits

The course introduces the basic knowledge about the electronic materials structure, namely conductors, dielectrics and magnetic materials. Also, it introduces the fundamental properties of the passive electronic components, as resistor, capacitor and inductor and presents the analysis and design methods of the passive electronic circuits, respectively.

Foreign Language (English)

The main objective of the discipline is the development of communicative competences and performances with emphasis on the acquisition of specific terminology and of the structures specific to the technical-scientific style, with a view to make research reports and to participate in social and professional interactions.

Physical Education and Sport

Physical education and sport completes the curriculum of this engineering profile by contributing to a more judicious organisation of leisure time, creating the premises for using professional skills in good health and with will to work. It is a mobilising factor, mostly for teamwork. Physical education and sport contributes to both physical and intellectual development of students, to their aesthetic, ethical, technical and professional education.
