After finishing the first year of basic physics, students choose from a variety of majors, including Astrophysics, Elementary Particle Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Biophysics. Courses offered in the second and third years include Analytical Mechanics, Statistical Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, Quantum Mechanics, Mathematical Physics, Physics Tutorials, Physics Experiments, and Physics Seminars. In their final year, students in the School of Science are required to major in a specialized field of either theoretical or experimental physics. Subjects of research in physics extend to infinity, ranging from the micro world to the distant expanses of outer space: Elementary Particle Physics and Physics of Gravity; Astrophysics; Physics of Superconductors, Semiconductors, Magnetic materials, and Dielectric materials; and Biophysics.
Many of the students are expected to enter the Graduate School of Science. Then, after undergoing rigorous training and studies, most of our graduates eventually enter teaching or research careers in academia or industry. Basic problem-solving and abstract thinking skills make physics graduates competitive employees in a broad range of areas including finance, industry and education.
Most of our graduates eventually enter teaching or research careers in academia or industry. Graduates can be found in academia worldwide, as well as in top-class companies.
