CREDIT VALUE: 2
PREREQUISITE (IF ANY): None
OBJECTIVES: Acquire knowledge about a variety of physical phenomena, including periodic motion, including free and forced oscillations, coupled oscillators, normal modes, and waves in one and higher dimensions
LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of the course students would be able to:

1.  Demonstrate competence in understanding the concepts of Electric and Magnet and its applications. (C5, CTPS3 – LO1).

2.   Use critical thinking skills to solve problems related to electricity and magnetism (C3,A1,CTPS3 – LO3)

3.   Effectively communicate scientific information in written and oral form (CS1, CS2, TS1, LL1- LO4)

TRANSFERABLE  SKILLS: Students should be able to develop problem solving and life long learning skills through a process of lectures and practicals.
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT  STRATEGY: Teaching-learning  strategy:

The  course  will be taught  through  a combination  of formal  lectures,  assignments,  group  work,  blended  learning  using  authentic materials, informal activities and various textbooks.

SYNOPSIS: This course  introduces  to the students  some  of   the importance  topics  in electricity  and magnetism    such  as electrostatic,dielectric, capacitors, Gauss ‘s Law, Ohm’s Law, Ampere’s Law, Maxwell Equations, Faraday’s Law, Lenz’s Law and others that responsible to the developments of Physics. The course will also provide a clear explanation theoretically and experimentally,how  its help to modernize the technology.
