Engineering Physics A: Mechanics, Waves, Electromagnetism and Thermal Physics

15 points
15 Jul 2019 - 10 Nov 2019

Description

This is a required course for all Engineering Programmes as well as Physics and Astronomy degrees. PHYS101 builds on NCEA level 3 physics to develop Mechanics, Conservation Laws, Fluids, Waves, Thermal Physics, and Electromagnetism into an essential foundation for science and technology understanding.

Pre-requisites

1) a) PHYS111 or NCEA 14 credits (18 credits strongly recommended) at level 3 Physics, and b) MATH101 or 14 Credits (18 credits strongly recommended) at level 3 Mathematics (including the standards 'Apply differentiation methods in solving problems (91578)' and 'Apply integration methods in solving problems(91579)), or
2) Cambridge: D at A level or an A at AS level in both Physics and Mathematics, or
3) IB: 4 at HL or 6 at SL in both Physics and Mathematics, or
4) approval of the Head of Department based on alternative prior learning.
