Essential Physics for Global Leaders Ⅰ to begin on October 5, 2016

 Class List of Fall Semester 2016

“Essential Physics for Global Leaders Ⅰ” will begin on October 5. This is a compulsory lecture for students who are in “Minor Course of Science and Technology for Global Leaders”. But all master’s & doctoral students can take it if you have interest. The lecture will be conducted in English.

Lecture Theme & Objective

Essential Physics for Global Leaders I will present students with an introductory overview of core concepts in classical and modern physics, underlying natural systems, and current and future technologies of concern to business and government leaders in the global community. Students will learn how to discuss these physical concepts, and to educate fellow students in relevant topics using proper academic English.

Message to Students

Prof. FoleyThis course will be an introductory survey of a variety of topics in classical and modern physics. The topics and the depth to which they are covered may change, according to the student’s background and expressed interest.
