Summary/Abstract: In technical universities the discipline of Physics is studied by the majority of the students. Many of the first-year students at the Military Academy „N. J. Vaptsarov“do not have the necessary groundwork for this. The weaker results of the students in recent years show that they are not ready to acquire the necessary knowledge and practical skills for the short time of fundamental preparation. Even the most elementary university course teaches many new key concepts that remain undigested from the beginning. This leads to a misunderstanding or mechanical reproduction of their applications, which is the complete opposite of the ultimate goal of training future engineers. The presented project studies the dependency between the different levels of preparation of the students in mathematics and physics at the beginning of the semester and their results at the end of the training. For the purpose of the study, 215 first-year students were interviewed and a statistical analysis of the collected data was carried out. The obtained results will help to develop, discuss and propose initiatives to improve the training in the Department of Mathematics and Physics.
