**ELEC 1908 **

An introduction to Engineering Physics.
A overview of the field of engineering physics is given in this course.
Lecture material covers classical physics, differential equations, numerical
analysis of differential equations, quantum mechanics, and optoelectronics.
The students will complete labs and assignments in numerical analysis
and the use of a commercial electrostatic simulation tool and do an
project involving the simulation and experimental analysis of a chaotic circuit.

Course Requirements:

** TSE (from ECOR 1010 pass/fail) **** Fridays at 10:35-11:25 Room UC-231. **

You have to go to these lectures (from a different professor) and take a short test at the end of term on the material. You need to pass this test!

Assignments/projects 100%

Course outline

The first class/meeting will be Jan 9, Tues. 1:30 in ME-3174.

My Labs/Lectures

All subsequent meeting times for the classes with me are Friday 1:30-5:30 (Room MC-6030) where we will do lectures and labs. The class times scheduled for Mon/Wed/Thu are available for you to work on your labs and assignments. I will be available during that time as well as the TA.

TSE Lectures

On Friday 10:35-11:35 you must attend the TSE component in Room: UC 231 provided by Prof.Liu.

A detailed week-by-week breakdown follows:
