Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Classroom learning activities involve the following topics from the Applied Physiscs:

- Electromagnetism
- Motion
- Light and matter
- Atoms and nuclei
- Heating

Simulated work activities to consolidate the theory and concepts in relation to identifying effects of energy on machinery and materials in electrotechnology environment.

It is expected that students would require approximately 20% of course hours to be allocated for independent study to do project research on effects of energy on machinery and materials in an electrotechnology environment.
