About this Unit
This unit will be offered at Engineering Innovation Hub – Hassall St, Parramatta campus. The aim of this unit is to introduce students to the conceptual, mathematical and practical aspects of the following topics in advanced engineering physics, viz: vectors, linear and circular motion, photons, electrons and atoms, Newtons laws of motion, work and kinetic energy, dynamics of rotational motion, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, periodic motion and waves/acoustics. The content will be delivered via a combination of lectures, tutorials and hands-on practicals in order to develop the growth of theoretical and applied engineering physics knowledge. This will provide students with a solid foundation for their engineering studies.
