Area of Study :
The objectives of the physics courses for the Engineering students during the third semester is to provide them with the basic fundamental theories of electronic quantum behavior of matter, beginning with the early quantum mechanics theories, the duality of particles and wave, the probalistic uncertainty of finding a particle in a certain medium ending with the semi-conductors theories.
