Rationale
As Physics is the mother of all engineering disciplines, students must have some basic knowledge on physics to understand their core engineering subjects more comfortably. Accordingly, in reviewing the syllabus, emphasis has been given on the principles, laws, working formulae and basic ideas of physics to help them study the core subjects. Complicated derivations have been avoided because applications of the laws and principles of physics are more important for engineering students. As Physics is considered as basic science, its principles, laws, hypothesis, concepts, ideas are playing important role in reinforcing the knowledge of technology. Deep thought is given while selecting topics in physics. They are different for various branches of engineering. This will provide sound background for self-development in future to cope up with new innovations. Topics are relevant to particular program and students will be motivated to learn and can enjoy the course of Physics as if it is one of the subjects of their own stream. Engineering, being the science of measurement and design, has been offspring of Physics that plays the primary role in all professional disciplines of engineering. The different streams of Physics like Optics, Acoustics, Dynamics, Semiconductor Physics, Surface Physics, Nuclear physics, Energy Studies, Materials Science, etc provide Fundamental Facts, Principles, Laws, and Proper Sequence of Events to streamline Engineering knowledge.
