Degree Programmes

BSc in Physics / Applied Physics

Students in the Physics programme learn a broad range of topics from electromagnetism to quantum mechanics, with theoretical, experimental, and computational coursework. Students in the Applied Physics programme take fundamental courses in physics, and continue into applied topics such as spintronics, nanotechnology, and laser physics.

BSc in Applied Physics with Second Major in Microelectronics Engineering

In this Second Major programme, students receive a rigorous training in physics and then learn how to apply those principles to modern microelectronic devices. The programme is run in conjunction with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

BSc in Physics and Mathematical Sciences (Double Major)

In this Double Major programme, students explore the intersections of physics and mathematics, learning the skills needed to perform fundamental investigations of the natural world, as well as computation and problem-solving. Topics covered include differential geometry and general relativity, topology and condensed matter physics, and quantum field theory. The programme is run jointly with the Division of Mathematical Sciences.

BSc in Physics with Second Major in Mathematics

This Second Major programme provides a deep and rigorous education in the closely-allied fields of physics and mathematics. As of 2020, this has been replaced by the BSc in Physics and Mathematical Sciences (Double Major) programme, and is no longer offered.
