General description The main goals of Physics III are:
a) To get a deeper understanding of the physical foundations of engineering, specifically those related to electromagnetic and wave phenomena.
b) To introduce the use of mathematical tools —in particular vector analysis and differential equations and their associated boundary value problems— within the framework of problems and models in Physics.
c) To combine theoretical education and a practical engineering approach, stressing the relevance of fundamentals to deal with problem analysis and synthesis of solutions in real-life situations.
d) To relate the topics in electromagnetism and wave phenomena fundamentals to the contents of other more technological subjects included in the curriculum for the Degree.

The topics of Physics III are, essentially, an introduction to wave phenomena in general (three units) and the study of classical electromagnetism using a step by step axiomatic approach employing mathematical treatment based on differential vector operators (seven units).
