  1. ** IMPORTANT INFORMATION - READ CAREFULLY AND READ IN FULL BEFORE REGISTERING ** The course fee is DUE UPON REGISTRATION and MUST PAID AT THAT TIME. Failure to pay upon registration will result in the student being dropped from the course without prior notice and there is no guarantee the student will be allowed to re-register in the course this pts 202120 term. All course content (including labs) will be delivered remotely. Students are not required to be physically on campus at any time. A computer with access to the internet is required. The course instructor will communicate with students through BCIT's Learning Hub therefore it is important that students sign on to the Learning Hub prior to the course start date to review any messages he may have posted.

For students unable to attend synchronous classes, recordings of all lectures and course material will be distributed online. All students, whether synchronous or asynchronous, must attend synchronous midterm and final exam sessions. Additionally, both synchronous and asynchronous learners are expected to complete assignments and lab exercises according to the same schedule. Class will be held on Monday August 2nd. Any student who withdraws from the course AFTER it has begun will not be permitted to re-register and re-join the learning activities this pts 202120 term.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:

  • Apply the concepts of calorimetry to compute temperature changes, heat loss/gain in conduction and radiation processes, thermal expansion and thermal stress in technological contexts.
  • Demonstrate how vibrations and wave concepts apply, predict modes of vibration in simple systems, and explain the use of sound waves in non-destructive testing.
  • Verify Ohm's Law for DC current and voltage and compute resistivity.
  • Analyze electric and magnetic forces and simple electric circuits.

Effective as of Fall 2003
