**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.
