Physics with Renewable Energy Science at University of Dundee - UCAS

Course summary

Physics involves the exploration of nature in the broadest possible sense. Physicists discover how the universe behaves and use that knowledge for the benefit of humanity. Energy and how we use it is one of the biggest challenges facing our planet. This course will teach you how to apply physics to improve and maximise energy efficiency. In Levels 1 and 2, you'll study modules within physics. You'll develop a deep understanding of fundamental physics, from astronomical phenomena to quantum mechanics. As the course progresses, you'll gain knowledge in classical physics as well as advancements in modern physics, and apply this knowledge to renewable energy science. In your final year, you'll undertake an independent research project related to renewables. Our Physics Society runs regular social events. They have organised trips to CERN, Munich, and Amsterdam as well as the annual Physics Ball. You can meet with students from all year groups to help guide you through the more challenging aspects of the course. We are the only Scottish university taking part in the CMS Collaboration, a major experiment at the Large Hadron Collider CERN. Our students have had the opportunity to visit the site during their studies.
