NAME OF COURSE/MODULE: QUANTUM MECHANICS
COURSE CODE: SFG 3013
NAME(S) OF ACADEMIC STAFF: PROF.DR.KARSONO BIN AHMAD DASUKI
RATIONALE FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE COURSE/MODULE IN THE PROGRAMME: This subject is the extension of knowledge that the students acquired when they studied Classical Physics in the previous semester. This course is meant to expose students to quantum theory. Emphasis is given to the use of Schrodinger equation in cases of one and three dimensions, for example harmonic oscillator, central force and hydrogen atom. Formal aspects of operator and quantum states are emphasized in this course

CREDIT VALUE: 3
PREREQUISITE (IF ANY): NONE
OBJECTIVES: 1.     To expand students exposure in some of the very importance topic in physics that is Quantum Mechanics based on the level of knowledge that the students already acquired in the previous semester, in particular focussed on the concepts and applications of Quantum Mechanics.

2.     To provide students the technique of understanding and solving problems relating to Quantum Mechanics, because it is the foundation to understand other advanced subjects in physics.

LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

1.    Explain the essential concepts, principles and theories of Quantum Mechanics (C2 – LO1).

2.     Observe, predict, conduct and discuss results of scientific review in Areas of Quantum  Physics. (P1 – LO2).

3.    Demonstrate ethical standards of values, ethics and professionalism related to Applied Physics in life. (LO6- A3)

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to develop problem solving skills through a process of lectures and tutorials.
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.

Assessment strategy:

  • Formative
  • Summative
