Course Objectives:

The course aims to provide students with the specialist knowledge necessary or basic concepts in quantum mechanics and to understand its applications in real physical problems l problems.

Course Outcomes:

1- Knowledge and Understanding: Students are able to understand the nature and operations of mathematics. Demonstrate familiarity with theories and concepts used throughout the course, deal with different applications related to quantum mechanics and identify the steps required to carry out a piece of research on a topic within mathematics.

2- Intellectual and practical Skills: By the end of the course the student is expected to learn the fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics and implement it in a lot of application and  use the considered techniques for solving new problems

3- Transferable Skills: Within the lectures the student is able to transfer ideas and experience and work effectively as a part of a group and independently.  

Student Outcomes:  

K2-Knowledge of the implementation of theories in problem solving.

I1-Ability to understand the different math concepts and be able to implement them in our everyday problems.

P3- Efficient use of the techniques, skills, and tools of modern mathematics

S1-Functioning in multi-disciplinary teams
