Degree in Physics

240 credits - Faculty of Science

The Degree in Physics offers general training in this core discipline of science and technology. Some of the goals of the program are to: discover physical phenomena, as well as important theories and physical laws; master mathematical and numerical methods; apply known solutions to new problems; and enable students to carry out laboratory experiments. Interdisciplinary skills will be acquired during the degree programme, including the ability to communicate in English. Additionally, specific skills will be taught such as the ability to knowledgeably describe the physical world using mathematics and to critically compare results of a calculation based on a physical model with conclusions from observations and experiments.
