SENG 111 General Physics


The course introduces students to theories of vibrations and waves, electricity and magnetism
and modern physics. The course provides students with a foundation on how to model real-
life scenario for engineering designs. For vibrations and waves, the focus is on generation and
propagation. For electricity and magnetism, the course concentrates on the relationship
between electric fields and magnetic flux and discusses some of its applications including;
cranes for lifting huge loads in industries and magnetic levitation for fast-moving trains in
transportation. Finally, for modern physics, much attention is paid to quantum theories
because of the breakthrough in electronics.
