Join a University ranked in the UK top five for Physics research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning. Do you enjoy both physics and computing? This three-year course combines the study of the building blocks and forces of nature with training in the computational and data-science skills that are revolutionising science and society. In this course, state-of-the-art computational methods are taught through the medium of examples drawn from the physical sciences. Computing skills are vital across many physics-related careers. Computers control advanced instrumentation and simulations predicting the properties of the universe, from subatomic particles to the formation of galaxies. This course offers a unique combination of units and projects blending programming, machine learning, data science and high-performance computing with fundamental concepts in physics to produce a new kind of scientist - one with a firm foundation in physics, a sound appreciation of scientific computing and an understanding of what can be achieved by combining them. Year one gives you a comprehensive grounding in physics, mathematics and programming, while year two focuses on the principles of physics with further emphasis on scientific coding. In your final year, you will undertake a research project or dissertation supervised by staff with expertise in physics and computing. You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. We encourage you to develop a broad range of skills, including the experimental, theoretical and computational skills needed for a career in research and industry. Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment which is a testament to the value that employers place on these skills. If you have a fascination for physics and an appetite for scientific computing, you will enjoy this course.
