Course Objectives 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.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • To understand and apply solving problems of electricity and magnetism that lead to understanding the fundamentals of related fields in engineering sciences
  • To understand the conceptual topics of general physics and apply to engineering problems
  • To apply and integrate the basic science and the principles of engineering science
  • To understand how to elaborate topics of physical science, such as electricity, and apply to engineering problems
  • 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 Content Electric charge, electric fields, Gauss` law, electric potential, capacitance, current and resistance, circuits, magnetic fields, magnetic fields due to currents, induction and inductance.
