### Vector Calculus

Objectives of the course :

The aim of this course is to learn the concept of vector differentiation and integration. Also we discuss several properties of vector algebra.

Objective 1 :  Students will learn the fundamentals of vector algebra.

Objective 2 :  Students will study the properties of vector differentiation.

Objective 3 :  Students will have the knowledge about line integral, surface integral and volume integral.

Course learning outcome:Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1.      Understand basic concepts of vector algebra.

2.      Classify the vector equations and its applications.

3.      Characterize the vector differentiation.

5.      Discuss gradient, curl and divergence and their applications.
