Official course description: The three semester sequence PHYSICS 151L Introductory Mechanics, PHYSICS 152L Introductory Electricity, Magnetism and Optics and PHYSICS 153L Applications of Physics: A Modern Perspectiveis intended mainly for engineering students. Normally engineering students without AP credits take PHYSICS 151L and 152L. Students with full AP credits take PHYSICS 153L. The 151/152/153 sequence differs from the other introductory physics courses by using the Matlab programming environment for homework assignments and by emphasizing applications of physics (often to engineering) rather than derivations of key equations.
