Language of the course: English

Course objective: The goal of this course is, by giving the calculus-based concepts of electricity and magnetism, to establish the relationships between mathematics and fundamentals of electricity and magnetism and apply this knowledge to define and solve engineering  problems. 

General learning outcomes of the course:

1) To understand and apply solving problems of  electricity and magnetism that lead to understanding the fundamentals of related fields in engineering sciences.

2) To understand the conceptual topics of general physics and apply to engineering problems.

3) To apply and integrate the basic science and the principles of engineering science.

4) To understand how to elaborate topics of physical science,  such as electricity, and apply to engineering problems.

5) To provide a basic science oriented introduction for the engineering students to give them  the opportunity to establish conceptual relations between the electricity and magnetism and a wide range of topics of engineering sciences. Course hours: 3-hour lectures + 3-hour laboratory practices

Course credits: 4 (3,2,0)

Laboratory regulations:

  • A student who does not attend the laboratory is to be graded zero.
  • You are given a quiz within the first 10 minutes of each laboratory session. If you happen to be late more than 10 minutes, you cannot take that quiz.
  • A medical report (approved by the Senate of the University) is mandatory in order to have the right of attending a make-up laboratory session.
  • You are not allowed to attend a laboratory session if you happen to be late more than 15 minutes.
  • Only those who obtain at least 12 points, out of 20, are considered successful. The others will fail in both the laboratory work and the course.
  • You cannot eat, drink, or smoke during any laboratory session.
  • You must bring your own laboratory manual, and calculator. You cannot use your mobile phone as a calculator.
  • Try not to use your mobile phone in any laboratory session. It is best to close it, except an emergency happens to befall you.
  • All grades are periodically announced. Keep on checking regularly all your grades.
  • If you fail to meet the regulations listed above, you will fail in the laboratory work and the course, as well.

Laboratory evaluation:

  • 5 points for quizzes
  • 15 points for reports.
