Engineering Practice

Description

This subject is delivered by the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences. It is aimed at both second-year engineering and science undergraduate students. This subject provides students with the fundamental mathematical and physical knowledge required as practicing engineers and scientists. It provides an up-to-date toolbox of mathematical methods needed for the analysis of electric and magnetic fields, circuits, signal processing and theoretical and applied quantum physics. The mathematical sections of this subject are complemented by the physics curriculum, which includes practical exercises. The physics section of this subject provides an introduction to quantum physics (starting from classical mechanics) through to the application of quantum physics to real-world situations such as semiconductor electronic and opto-electronic devices. Topics covered are: vector calculus; functions of a complex variable; partial differential equations and boundary value problems; classical mechanics and heat diffusion, the concepts of quantum mechanics and Schrödinger's equation; and applications of quantum mechanics to semiconductors and electronic devices.

Typical availability
