Physics is the most multifaceted discipline of Science. It involves exploring, experimenting and theorising, with all the scientific topics as its playground. A physicist is someone who wants to figure things out. To do so, he/she relies on a broad toolkit, from complex simulations run by computer codes to simple models based on a mathematical idea. Our course of Physics allows students to discover where lies their best potential.
If you like to think, guess, bet, tweak, explore, discover and want to contribute to tomorrow’s new and emerging technologies, the Physics course is a good place to be.
The BSc (Hons) Physics course leads you through the meanders of light and matter, both at the classical and quantum level, with topics in Optics, Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Physics of the Solid State and Condensed Matter, Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics. It also provides strong foundations in Mathematics and Computer Science, taught by experts who spelalise in these subjects. The course is heavily laboratory-based, with brand new equipment. You will build a telescope, guide radio-waves and study car collisions. It also fosters a constant active production of scientific output in both oral and written form, up to the highest professional standards.
The BSc (Hons) Physics course is taught by research-active staff of international recognition, with a strong dedication to supporting students on an individual basis.
It is a brand new development of the University of Opportunity, that consistently achieves excellent ratings for the way it helps innovation in industrial environments through working directly with industrial partners. You will be part of the exciting adventure of forging your Alma Mater and contribute to its success.
The School within which physics will be housed get consistently high scores in the NSS survey. It will utilise the brand new Rosalind Franklin Science Building.
Studying physics at university-level will bring you into contact with a wide variety of topics, providing much flexibility and competencies for the world of work. There are countless careers open to physicists, including: research, academia, teaching, engineering, computing, electronics, medical equipment, manufacturing, jobs related to medical technologies, radiology, scientific publishing, telecommunications, etc. Physics focuses on all fields with a potential for technology. As such it offers great professional prospects given the huge demand in this sector. Physicists have also proven to be highly sought after in management, financing and trading, as system developers, operational researchers or patent attorneys.
After completing this course you will be a problem-solving expert. You will have acquired competencies in a broad range of Physics skills, including electronics, optics and mechanics, but also their combinations and variations. You will have gained highly developed analytical and practical expertise, be conversant with data processing, analysis and interpretation, and will have research-level laboratory competencies. You will have developed a considerable experience in dealing efficiently with huge amount of new information. Finally, you will be highly trained in communicating efficiently on technical subjects, both orally and in written form.
Those who do not meet the entry requirements may be offered an alternative course.
