Advanced Physics and Engineering

Module Leader:
Márton Farkas
2014-2015 Autumn
Numerical Sciences

The aim of the course is to bring students closer to the standard required for a physics or engineering degree in the UK. As a secondary goal, the module will prepare students for any first year undergraduate physics-related courses. The UK high school physics education concentrates on different areas from the Hungarian and places emphasis primary on problem solving. As a result, this module focuses on topics more likely to come up during an interview: Mechanics, Electrostatics, Electrical circuits and Special Relativity. The last two sessions are problem solving seminars, where solutions in various topics are discussed. The module strives to be fast-paced, and therefore students should allocate adequate time to revising the content of previous seminars and to solving the example sheets. Please take the prerequisites seriously in order to get the full benefits of this course.
