Physics with Data Science will give you a strong grounding across the fundamentals of Physics and the exciting field of Data Science. Co-taught with the School of Computer Science, Data Science underpins much of modern physics research and many industries, meaning you will be in demand in a wide range of careers. The Physics with Data Science BSc will equip you to be in the forefront of career opportunities for physicists requiring skills, expertise and experience in Data Science, including career paths in academia, industry and finance. Data Science encapsulates the techniques, algorithms and processes used to extract knowledge from data. Its importance arises from ever-increasing amounts of data across all areas of society, including Physics, and the challenges and opportunities of fully utilising and exploiting them, including applications of machine learning and Artificial Intelligence. You will gain a broad understanding of the fundamentals of Physics including Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Optics and more. Mathematical and Computational modules will build your data science knowledge with specialised modules and projects to build your experience and expertise.
