Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the theoretical and methodological fundamentals in arts, science, engineering and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic artistic, scientific and mathematical principles
    • Understand laboratory techniques: testing, measuring, monitoring protocol, and security
    • Select and thoroughly apply knowledge, methods and tools in arts, sciences, engineering sciences and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
  • Collaborate, work in a team
    • Interact effectively with other students to carry out collaborative projects.
  • Communicate in a structured way - visually, orally and in writing, in French and English - giving clear, accurate, and reasoned information
    • Argue to and persuade a project owner, teachers and a board orally, with visual aids and in writing
    • Use several methods of written and graphic communication: text, tables, equations, sketches, maps, graphs, etc.
    • Present analysis or experiment results in laboratory reports
  • Demonstrate thoroughness and independence throughout their studies
    • Demonstrate self-awareness, asses themself, and develop appropriate learning strategies.
    • Develop scientific and cultural curiosity and open-mindedness

Learning Outcomes of UE

Acquiring basic knowledge of Physics in the following fields: geometric optics, electricity and wave physics.  Solving a contextualized problem. Notions of approximation, order of magnitude and dimensional analysis.  Notion of infinitesimal decomposition (integral calculus). Notion of phasors (complex number). Understanding and to use an experimental set-up.
