General Information

OVERVIEW

Physics is `the' fundamental science. Computer science students have good reason to learn some fundamental aspects of Physics. The physical theories are inspired by the computational theories are much better tailored for Computer Science applications as compared to their low-level counterparts. For example, the current tools available for developing quantum algorithms using ‘network algorithms’.

 

The goal of physics is no less ambitious than to find and understand the laws that govern everything in the Universe starting from the behavior of the smallest building blocks of matter to the structure of the space-time and the Universe itself. Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the computer engineer of the world. The emphasis on study of Physics aims to gain understanding of the basic concepts and principles of Electricity and magnetism, which is relevant to their further studies. . The most fundamental processes in nature, from the forces that determine the structure of atoms and molecules to the phenomena of light to nerve impulses in living systems, depend on electric and magnetic fields.

Electricity and magnetism is fundamental to current and future technologies. Motors, power generation and transmission, electronics, sensors, and communication – both wired and wireless – involve the manipulation of electric or magnetic fields. There are few advances in technology that can be made without the use of electronic circuits or electric and magnetic fields. A large and diverse body of observational facts can be explained in terms of a few simple concepts. The phenomena of electricity and magnetism, which appear to be completely different, are shown to be two manifestations of the same physics. The theory requires few if any approximations. Results can be predicted with great accuracy.

Of the various ways to approach science, physics in general, and E&M in particular, starts with the smallest set of fundamental assumptions. Quantitative rigor in solving important problems is rewarded by unprecedented agreement with measured results.

Get strong understanding of the concepts and principles of Electromagnetism through lectures, Laboratory experiments and assessment tools.

This is a graded course: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the course of at least 60%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the course. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 60%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.
