Abstract

The Importance of teaching Quantum Mechanics to Engineering Students was discussed in last year's Conference in Seattle, WA, so in this present research the author has made a survey of how this material was perceived by senior year Electronics Engineering Technology students. It was taught to a class of 22 students who took their 2nd Physics class, in their senior year. The out comes analysis show that for most advanced or even average students majoring in Electrical Engineering programs, the subject is very consumable and exciting and understandable so long as the calculus by which the equation is solved is kept at minimal level. It was also thought that the possibility of providing a 2 credit hours course entitled “Basic Quantum Mechanics “, or could be given any other course label, even though as an elective course, to Engineering student would be very beneficial. This latter will be discussed in the presentation with audience at the conference.
