Physics is a key subject for understanding the world and universe. While there is much that is known, there is still a great deal to be explored. Physics goes all the way from abstract theoretical physics to experimental investigations that can be directly applied to new technologies.
Undergraduate courses in Physics and Astrophysics seek to guide students to gain a solid grounding in core physics. This grounding is used in exploring practical, theoretical, and computational aspects of the subject. There can be significant interaction with the School's research teams in this process.
