Engineering Physics

English language proficiency requirements

Students registering in post-secondary level courses (numbered 100 to 499) will be required to meet the English language entrance proficiency requirements. Students in ELS or the University Foundations programs can register in those courses identified in the University Foundations program with lower levels of language proficiency.

Please note that not all courses are offered every semester.

ENPH 310

4 credits

Electronics I

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 221.

Corequisite(s): PHYS 232.

Construct electronic circuits containing diodes, bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), MOSFETs, and differential amplifiers; analyze the frequency response of a circuit; design and troubleshoot circuits using simulation software. A lecture/lab combination course with a final project.

Note: Students with credit for PHYS 332 and PHYS 342 cannot take this course for further credit.

ENPH 320

4 credits

Electronics II

Prerequisite(s): ENPH 310

Conversion Boolean logic, arithmetic circuits, logic gates, A/D and D/A conversion, sequential digital logic, digital design, and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). A lecture/lab combination course with a final project.

Note: Students with credit for PHYS 362 and PHYS 372 cannot take this course for further credit.

ENPH 360

3 credits

Interfacing and Virtual Instrumentation

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 232 or COMP 256 and MATH 125 and one of (PHYS 105, PHYS 112, PHYS 093 or Physics 12).

In this course students will learn how to create computerized control and analysis equipment for experimental work. This includes interfacing a computer or microcontroller, such as the Arduino microcontroller, to various instruments for data acquisition and instrument control using a state-of-the-art software platform such as National Instrument's LabVIEW. Emphasis is on the practical aspects of interfacing a computer or microcontroller to various instruments including timing issues, real-time data acquisition and instrument control, instrument status, and acquisition speed.

Note: Students with credit for PHYS 392 cannot take ENPH 360 for further credit.

ENPH 390

3 credits


Prerequisite(s): ENPH 320, (one of COMP 150 or COMP 152), and (one of ENGR 330 or PHYS 382).

Pre- or corequisite(s): ENGR 151.

In this practical application-based course, students will apply knowledge and skills gained in prior courses to design and build specific mechatronics-based projects. The interfacing between electronics and robotics will be emphasized with an eye towards industrial/practical applications.
