Explore the innermost workings of the natural world, or help turn the latest scientific knowledge into exciting technologies.
The Physics programme covers a broad range of topics spanning most aspects of the natural world, from electromagnetism to quantum mechanics. The coursework consists of a balanced mix of theoretical, experimental, and computational components.
The Applied Physics programme builds up a solid foundation in physics, followed by advanced topics at the frontier of technology development, where the latest scientific discoveries are turned into new applications. Topics covered include spintronics, nanotechnology, laser physics, and advanced materials.
Graduate of both programmes have a wide range of career options utilising their uniquely flexible skill set, which includes quantitative, hands-on, computational, and problem-solving abilities.
