Unit Snapshot

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

demonstrate an understanding of Newton's Laws and Conservation Laws, waves and optics, electricity, and magnetism

demonstrate proficiency in performing calculations to solve problems in mechanics.
