Prerequisites:

Knowledge of differential and integral calculus. Matrices and determinants. Vector calculus. Knowledge of the three principles of the dynamics and their applications. Uniformly accelerated motion, harmonic oscillator. The concept of conservative force. Kinetic energy and potential energy. Momentum and angular momentum. Main properties of the gravitational interaction. 
Target skills and knowledge:

Good knowledge of the subjects of electromagnetism and adequate ability to solve problems on the same topics. 
Examination methods:

Written test with 2 problems to solve. One concerns the electrostatic, the other one concerns electromagnetism. Typically, every problem is subdivided into 34 points. There are also two questions of theory. The time available for resolution is approximately two hours. At the request of the student, the oral exam is possible. 
Assessment criteria:

Written and oral examination on the content of the course listed in the program. Overcoming the written tests during the course is equivalent to passing the written test examination. 
Course unit contents:

 Electricity and electric currents:
Coulomb's law. Electric field. Electric potential generated by a charge and by a charge distribution. Electric dipole. Electrostatic induction.
Conductors. Insulators. Gauss theorem and its applications. Capacitors. Dielectrics.
Electrical currents. Ohm's law. Joule's law. RC circuits. Semiconductors.
 Magnetism and electromagnetism:
Magnetic field. Biot Savart law. Lorentz force.
Magnetic dipole moment. Magnetic dipole in a magnetic field. Ampere theorem. Faraday's law. Inductance. RLC circuits. Oscillations. Magnetic properties of matter. Paramagnetism, diamagnetism, ferromagnetism.
Induced electromagnetic field. Maxwell's equations. 
Planned learning activities and teaching methods:

Lectures. Involvement of students in solving problems. Reference to possible uses of the topics studied in the social, cultural, security and health fields. 
Additional notes about suggested reading:

Extensive material related to the problems of examination is reported in Moodle.
