B.Sc. PHYSICS & ELECTRONICS

INTRODUCTION

The BSc Physics with Electronics programme has been developed to provide students simultaneously with a solid theoretical grounding in physics and competency in the technological area of Electronic Engineering. The programme structure puts a heavy emphasis on the acquisition of practical skills and also offers a wide range of choice of subject areas.

To produce skills manpower with theoretical and practical knowledge relevant for the various aspects of the Banking and Finance industry.

With B.Sc Physics with Electronics we aim to provide a firm foundation in every aspect of Physics and to explain a broad spectrum of modern trends in physics and to develop experimental, computational and mathematical skills of students. The programme also aims to develop the following abilities:

GOALS

Students will demonstrate an understanding of core knowledge in physics, including the major premises of classical mechanics, E&M and Modern Physics.

Students will demonstrate written and oral communication skills in communicating physics-related topics.

Students will design and conduct an experiment (or series of experiments) demonstrating their understanding of the scientific method and processes. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the analytical methods required to interpret and analyze results and draw conclusions as supported by their data.

Students will demonstrate proficiency in the acquisition of data using a variety of laboratory instruments and in the analysis and interpretation of such data.

Students will utilize a wide range of printed and electronic resources and information technologies to support their research on physical systems and present those results in the context of the current understanding of physical phenomena.

Students will demonstrate understanding of the applications of numerical techniques for modeling physical systems for which analytical methods are inappropriate or of limited utility.

Students will demonstrate a thorough understanding of the analytical approach to modeling of physical phenomena.

Students will demonstrate an understanding of the impact of physics and science on society.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the program are to:

Students will demonstrate skills in scientific inquiry, problem solving, and laboratory techniques.

Students will demonstrate understanding of our place in the physical universe.

Students demonstrate a broad base of knowledge in Physics.

Students will demonstrate understanding of the laws of nature.

Students develop laboratory skills throughout our curriculum via hands-on experiences with diverse experimental techniques and tools.

Students develop a solid grasp of core concepts and applications of classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, and statistical physics.

Students become effective, clear communicators in written and oral work, capable of explaining complex quantitative issues in broadly accessible terms.
