Programme Aims and Objectives

The BSc Physics programme aims to provide students with rigorous training in fundamental physics, and introduce them to various specialized physics-related topics such as financial engineering, biophysics, medical physics, computational physics, and optics, paving their ways to a diversified career path or further studies.

Students may take part in various enrichment opportunities such as the department-based research attachment scheme, and internships in overseas research institutes, local industrial companies or public sector. They may also apply for admission to the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program between City University of Hong Kong and Columbia University in the USA if certain requirements are fulfilled. Students admitted to the Joint Degree Program spend their third and fourth years at Columbia University, and earn a BSc degree from CityUHK and a BA degree from Columbia University at the end of their study.
