Area of Study :

The objective of this second physics course for the engineering students is to develop their ability to understand electricity and magnetism topics in classical physics and to analyze and logically solve problems of engineering applications based on these topics. On successful completion of these courses the engineering student will be able to: 1.Know and understand all old classical physics that is applied up to today. 2.Learn electricity as a single topic. 3.Learn magnetism as a single topic. 4.Solve problems about these two topics. 5.Understand at the end that electricity and magnetism are connected into one topic (Electromagnetic Theory).
