Mathematics is essential to the study of science - few scientific developments are possible without underlying mathematical theories. What’s more, physics is the most fundamental of the sciences, concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. In the context of astronomical phenomena, circumstances may conspire to produce extreme physical conditions - of gravity, pressure and temperature, for example. Here we push our understanding of core physics principles and laws to the absolute limit, providing critical new insights into the nature of the universe.
The topics covered within this degree underpin significant employment sectors in our modern technology- and data-driven economy. As a graduate you will have developed a wide range of tools to address problems in a range of scientific and technological fields, and to develop modelling approaches for finance and industry.
