B.Sc. Physics with Electronics

This programme has been developed to simultaneously provide students with a solid theoretical grounding in physics and competency in the technological area of Electronic Engineering. The programme structure puts heavy emphases on the acquisition of practical skills and also offers a wide range of subject area choices. The B.Sc. Physics with Electronics programme aims to provide (in addition to others) a firm foundation in every aspect of Physics, to explain a broad spectrum of modern trends in physics, and to develop the experimental, computational and mathematical skills of students.

    • 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.

Students will be able to:

    • Demonstrate skills in scientific inquiry, problem solving and laboratory techniques
    • Exhibit understanding of our place in the physical universe and the laws of nature
    • Indicate a broad base of knowledge in Physics
    • Develop laboratory skills throughout their curriculum via hands-on experience with diverse experimental techniques and tools.
    • Develop a solid grasp of core concepts and applications of classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics and statistical physics
    • Become effective and clear communicators in written and oral works, with the capability of explaining complex quantitative issues in broadly understandable terms.
