Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology

Department of Physics and Astronomy


Physics is the truly universal science. It seeks to explain the natural and technologically driven world around us, from the smallest subatomic particles to the entire universe. Many of the technologies and major developments in chemistry, biology and medicine that we take for granted are enabled through our continued exploration and understanding of nature through physics.

Each physics course is designed to develop excellent analytic abilities, fundamental physics knowledge, experimental skills and the ability to think creatively and problem solve. These are qualities that employers regard highly and are the reasons why physics graduates are sought after in research, industry and government positions.
