Programme Aims and Objectives
The Applied Physics major is not an ordinary Physics major. In Applied Physics, students are taught biomedical physics, computational physics, lasers and quantum physics, paving their way to a diversified career path including medicine and health care, education, engineering, commercial and industrial sectors, nuclear radiation facilities or postgraduate study.
Students may take part in the department-based research attachment scheme, which provides them an early exposure to discovery and innovation. Students of the Applied Physics major who meet certain requirements can apply for admission to the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program between City University of Hong Kong and Columbia University in USA. Students admitted to the Joint Degree Program spend their third and fourth years at Columbia University in USA, and earn a BSc degree from CityU and a BA degree from Columbia University at the end of their study.
