More Information-

Is this programme for you?

You enjoy analysing mathematical and physical problems and developing technological solutions. You enjoy physics classes at school and achieve good grades for science subjects in general. You will need to be exceptionally good at mathematics because physicists use maths as a "language" for describing the universe.

Applied physics involves thinking about technical or practical applications of physics. You will learn to create designs and physical measuring equipment and use your knowledge to solve problems.
