Learning outcomes

R1. Understand and use the fundamental physical principles of Electromagnetism in the analysis and study of the concepts and resolution of problems associated with subjects of higher degree courses.

R2. Identify and assess the physical aspects of Electromagnetism involved in the problems and specific engineering situations.

R3. Use and relate the different units of measurement of the main physical quantities related to Electromagnetism.

R4. Use appropriate measurement tools to determine the most relevant physical parameters in the field Electromagnetism.

R5. Acquire skills for experimental verification of physical laws and for the determination of physical parameters.

R6. Capability to report a measurement process in terms of its basis, required instrumentation and conditions in which it is valid.

R7. Know how to communicate information, ideas and conclusions.

Learning outcome
Assessment activity
Weight (%) It allows test resit
Minimum required grade
R1,R2,R3,R7 Written exam (first mid-term) 42.5 Yes 2
R1,R2,R3,R7 Written exam (second mid-term) 42.5 Yes 2
R4,R5,R6,R7 Laboratory work (compulsory) and report evaluation 15 No -


Ordinary evaluation

The ordinary evaluation will be made through written exams (two mid-term exams) and the practical work at the laboratory. 

The practical work at the laboratory is compulsory and cannot be passed through a resit exam. 


Resit (extraordinary) evaluation

- Final written exam. 

The mark of this exam will be the 85% of the final mark. The remaining 15% will correspond to the laboratory mark.



Experimental practice program

Laboratory practices

    Electric Field and Potential

    Ohm's Law

    Biot-Savart's Law/ Faraday's Law


These three practices are considered to be essential in order to achieve the learning outcomes. Consequently, the assistance to these three practices is mandatory.

 It will be necessary to submit a practice report after the laboratory sessions for its qualification.
