Physics is to understand how nature works, and build upon the fundamental understanding to make technological breakthrough that may benefit our society. In fact, much of modern technology and its advances owe its existence to application of fundamental physics principles. Its scope of study also overlaps with many other scientific and engineering disciplines such as biomedical science and engineering, environmental science, materials science, electronics, mechanical and manufacturing engineering.
Aims and Features
Our program provides students with comprehensive knowledge and a thorough understanding of physics principles and phenomena and their applications. The undergraduate curriculum covers topics in fundamental physics including classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum physics, thermodynamics, mathematical and experimental methods, and computational physics. Building upon a solid background in fundamental physics, students are introduced to various physics-related special topics such as financial engineering, biophysics, medical physics, optics, and material science / solid-state physics. In the final year of their study, students are required to work independently on a project in a selected area. These projects are designed to help students integrate their knowledge to solve challenging problems. Projects may be carried out in conjunction with industries or government agencies, thus facilitating their job seeking upon graduation.
