O que eu aprenderei?

This programme teaches the fundamentals of physics as a core science and will develop your professional skills and expertise for a career in any area of physics, from industrial applications to academic research.You will study core topics in physics, along with option subjects. Practical classes will enhance your familiarity with experimental physics.The Honours sandwich programme also offers an optional year’s paid work experience with an industrial or scientific employer in the UK or abroad.There is high demand for physics graduates, from industries including microelectronic telecommunications, optics and energy.Physicists are also in demand in the public services, including schools and hospitals, the civil service and research laboratories. Graduates work with companies including BAE Systems, Fujitsu, Motorola, and Nikon.The programme is accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP).Course contentYou will be taught by academics who are specialists in the field, and UWS is one of eight Scottish universities that have formed a research alliance with the aim of placing Scotland at the forefront of physics research.You will study core topics in physics, along with option subjects. During the first three years of the programme, practical classes will enhance your familiarity with the principles and techniques of experimental physics. You will have flexibility in your choice of final degree title.Guest speakers from industry also form part of the programme to further deepen your understanding of the subject. A representative from Thales Group recently addressed 3rd and 4th year studentsYear 1Five core modules include physics and mathematics. One optional module can be chosen from a range of science, engineering or computing-related modules. The physics modules cover the SQA Advanced Higher syllabus. Aspects of atomic physics and thermodynamics are also taught.Year 2You will branch out to other areas including electronics, vibrations and waves, and mathematical modelling. Practical and professional skills are also developed.Year 3Core modules include electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, atomic and nuclear physics, and statistical physics. Two optional modules can be chosen from advanced calculus, advanced optics, imaging and nuclear medicine, and applied nuclear technology. (Optional) industrial placementThis is an optional year spent in industry or a relevant scientific research laboratory.Year 4 (Honours)Subjects are more advanced developments of those undertaken in Year 3, with additional topics including nuclear and particle physics, solid state physics, ultrasonics and nanotechnology, surface analysis and detectors. You will undertake a project where your knowledge can be applied to an original research problem.
