Physics helps us to identify the connections between seemingly different phenomena. It provides the quantitative and analytic skills needed for analysing data and solving problems and makes an enormous contribution to a range of industries such as power, nuclear, electronics, IT, and data-mining. The subject knowledge in our Physics BSc is underpinned by a core physics curriculum as set out by the Institute of Physics. Module topics include the fundamentals of classical and quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, thermodynamics, solid state, atomic and nuclear physics, together with the mathematics that is used to describe them. You will also explore broader areas of physics and mathematics, computational and statistical techniques, and the applications of these in addressing physical problems.
