Minor Programme

Teaching Lab at NTU Physics

NTU students who are not majoring in Physics or Applied Physics are eligible to minor in Physics or in Applied Physics. The minor programme introduces students to the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics, and a selection of topics such as condensed-matter physics, fluid mechanics, optics, etc. The minor requires a minimum of 15 AU of Physics and Applied Physics courses, selected from the following tables.

For students on the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core (ICC) Curriculum: Up to 6 AU of courses for the Minor can be non-letter graded i.e., may consist of credits transferred from Student Exchange programme, or courses with 'P' (Pass) or 'S' (Satisfactory) notations.

For students who are not on ICC Curriculum: Only courses that are letter-graded or with 'P' (Pass) notation will count towards a Minor requirement.

Students planning to minor in Physics or Applied Physics should file a minor application form before embarking on the programme of study.
