Physics 1, Part 2: Electrical Engineering (EEng), WS2022/23

Course: E_1.08 Physics: Mechanics, Electricity and Magentism, WS2022/23, Part 2: “Electrical Engineering”
Course ID: EE_1.08_2 (part of EE_1.08)

Structure of E_1.08 Physics: Mechanics, Electricity and Magentism

We group the topics “electricity” and “magnetism” together under the term electrical engineering.
The course EE_1.08 consists of two course parts:

  1. Mechanics (EE_1.08_1) and
  2. Electrical Engineering (EE_1.08_2).

The two course parts are conducted separately by two lecturers.

Course Part General Topic Abbreviation Course ID Lecturer
Part 1 Mechanics Mech EE_1.08_1 Dr. Irmgard Buder
Part 2 Electrical Engineering EEng EE_1.08_2 Dr. Rolf Becker

Exam and Grading

Written Exam: 100 points,
Lab Exercises: 20 EXTRA points!

The two course parts form one module with one exam.

You will pass the module with 50 points.
100 points is scored as 1.0
120 points is scored as 1.0

The scores are distributed as follows:

Part Points New Points Allocation
Mech written exam 50 50
EEng written exam 30 50
EEng lab exercises 20 (extra lab points) 20
max 100 100 (+20)


Points Score
< 50 FAIL
50 pass
30 (written) + 20 (lab) = 50 pass
45 (written) + 5 (lab) = 50 pass
100 (written) + 0 (lab) = 100 1.0
80 (written) + 20 (lab) = 100 1.0
100 + 20 (lab) → 100 (limited) 1.0

EEng Lecture

  • Lecture Room: 01 00 215 (HS 1)
  • Lecture Time: THU, 12:15 - 15:30


The lectures will be given live on campus. At least the EEng part will be streamed, recorded and uploaded for later offline access.
The links to the videos are shared on the Discord channel of this course.

Relationship with other Courses
