Subject: Engineering Physics
Credit units: 3
Offered: Term 2 only
Weekly hours: 3 Lecture hours and 4 Practicum/Lab hours
College: Arts and Science
Department: Physics and Engin Physics


The emphasis is to investigate the practical engineering and scientific applications of mathematical techniques that were introduced in other classes. This goal is realized through the design and development of software systems to solve problems related to: electric circuit analysis; numerical differentiation, integration and interpolation of real world measurements; modelling of physical systems and Fourier decomposition. In the laboratory students write their own software to solve problems that are introduced in the formal lectures.

Prerequisite(s): CMPT 116 or CMPT 145 or CMPT 146; and GE 125 or GE 123 or PHYS 117 or PHYS 125.
Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): MATH 224 or MATH 226 or MATH 238.
