Prerequisite

Engineering physics majors are expected to have a basic understanding of calculus, physics and chemistry or computer science

Rationale

The Engineering Physics program is to prepare students for careers in engineering where physics principles can be applied to the advancement of technology. This education at the intersection of engineering and physics will enable students to seek employment in engineering upon graduation while, at the same time, provide a firm foundation for the pursuit of graduate studies in engineering.

Course Outcome
  1. The student will demonstrate the ability to think in core concept of their engineering application by studying various topics involved in branch specific applications.
  2. The student will demonstrate the ability to use appropriate mathematical techniques and concepts to obtain quantitative solutions to problems in physics.
  3. In courses involving laboratory, the student will demonstrate the ability to collect and analyze data and to prepare coherent reports of his or her findings.
  4. In a design module project, the student will demonstrate the ability to perform a literature search, to make use of appropriate computational or laboratory skills, and to make an effective written or oral presentation of the results of the project.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus of Physics is covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be sent to achievements@gtu.edu.in.
