Course Code and Name: PHYS1110 Engineering Physics: Mechanics and Thermodynamics
Course Outcomes:

By the end of the course, students will be able to:
1. describe and explain principles in Newtonian mechanics, Gravitation, Fluids, Oscillations, Waves and Thermal Physics, within a formalism using vectors and elementary calculus
2. apply some mathematical methods, such as vector algebra and elementary calculus, to physics or/and engineering problems
3. obtain the necessary background for upper level engineering courses
4. demonstrate essential physics skills for solving engineering problems
5. recognize the importance of classical physics, especially its fundamental role in different fields in science and engineering
Course Outcomes:

After completing the course, you should be able to understand and apply the following statistical models and methods for financial engineering applications:
* some basic statistical techniques, such as sample estimates, univariate distribution fitting, hypothesis tests and bootstrap;
