First Year
Selected Topics in Advanced Physics
This an introductory course on semiconductors physics for undergraduate physics and materials science students. It covers the basic quantum mechanics, solid state physics, and statiscal physics needed to introduce the band theory and its applications. It also covers intrinsic and extrisic semiconductor materials. All these concepts are then used to understand the concept of a pn-junction and the physics related to it.
In this course the students are first exposed to the basic math needed to under stand the classical electromagnetic theoery. The course then concentrates on electrostatics (Forces, fields and potentials), then the interaction of electric fields with mater is introduced. The couse then introduces magnetostatics (foces, fields and vector potentials). The course finally concludes with a shord discussion of the interactions of magnetic fields and matter. 
Inthis course students learn about the basics of classical mechanics. The topics covered are: vectors, motion in 1D, motion in 2D and 3D, foces, work and energy,linear momentum, uniform and nonuniform circular motion, rigid body rotation, angular momentum, static equilibrium, Gravitation, fluid mechanics, and simple harmonic motion. 
every semester.
Students study the classical theory of electrodynamics. The topics covered are: Coulombs law and electric fields, Gauss's law, Electric potentials, Capacitance, direct currents and circuits, Magnetostatics, induction, Maxwell's equations, and optics.
