Lecturer:  Hamman Gabdo 
Unit:  3 
Prerequisite:  No Prerequisite 
Overview:  General overview of the module, module description and students  instructor introduction. 
Aims:  To aid students to understand the broadbased fundamental principles of the physical world. This module will on the practical applications of everyday experience and industrial processes. 
Syllabus: 

Teaching and learning methods:  Lectures: This will be used to introduce the module and explain major concepts of the fundamentals to students. The theories (equations) and their applications will be illustrated in this section. Interactive Lectures: This section of the teaching will allow active student  instructor interactions. The instructor and students ask more questions and solve more examples. Classes/Tutorials: Tutorial sections will encourage you (students) to begin to gain confidence in solving difficult problems. The students are required to prepare any difficult problems they are unable to solve on their own for discussion. Classwork/Homework: Classwork and Homework will be assigned regularly. Students' answers to classwork and homework should be clear, concise and correct. Students will receive feedback on the homework and classwork. 
Intended learning outcomes:  Students are expected to develop the necessary skills required to solve fundamental problems in physics. This will enable them prepare for further studies in respective field.

Lecturer:  Joseph Asare 
Unit:  3 
Prerequisite:  Physics 1 , 
Overview:  The subject of electromagnetism is a combination of electrostatics phenomena, magnetism, and current electricity. These must have seemed at one time to be entirely different phenomena until in 1829 when Oersted discovered that an electric current is surrounded by a magnetic field. The basic phenomena and the connections between these three disciplines were ultimately described by Maxwell towards the end of the nineteenth century in four famous equations called the Maxwell's Equations. The course acquaints the student with concepts of electric and magnetic fields associated with particles and how these are affected in the presence of other particles. 
Aims:  The aim of this module is to aid students in understanding the broadbased fundamental principles of electricity and magnetism by emphasizing on applications associated to industrial processes and everyday experiences. 
Syllabus:  Electrostatics. Conductors and Currents. Magnetism. Maxwell's Equations. Electromagnetic Waves and Oscillations. 
Teaching and learning methods: 

Intended learning outcomes:  The theories and their applications illustrated in this module should expose students to the required foundational knowledge in Electromagnetism required for higher education in the department.
