COURSE OBJECTIVE
- Through the program of modules of :
kinematics, dynamics, momentum, force and energy, energy exchange with environment, conservation laws, oscillations, waves, light as elm wave, optics and optical instruments, students will acquire very practical and useful basic knowledge in order to overcome study of information engineering program.
- Stress on solving the problems in examples and experimental assignments
- Combination of theoretical and practical learning necessary for understanding phenomena in the nature at all
