The students know basics of linear algebra, basics of the theory of ordinary differential equations (ODE) and systems of ODE and basics  of theory of functions of several variables and vector analysis.
They are able to solve systems of linear equations, to compute determinants, inverse matrices, eigenvalues and eigenvectors and to solve fitting problems using linear algebra.
They are able to solve linear ODE of 1st and 2nd order and apply them to electrical and mechanical engineering (RLC-circuit, harmonic oscillator, spring-mass-systems) and to calculate partial derivatives, directional derivatives, to find max , min and saddle points of functions, and to find the derivatives for scalar and vector fields.
