Benefits

At the end of the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Physics program, graduates are able to:

1. Demonstrate proficiency in the basic knowledge in the major fields of physics (classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and thermodynamics) and the field of applied physics (e.g. solid state physics, optics, nuclear physics, atomic physics, etc.).

2. Demonstrate practical skills in physics such as designing, setting up experiments, collecting and analyzing data, identifying sources of error, interpreting experimental results and connecting results to related physics concepts or other scientific theories).

3. Value the need for sustainable development in the practice of physics for the needs of society and the environment.

4. Demonstrate capability in seeking creative and practical solutions to meet the requirements and changes dictated by the work environment in a scientific, professional and ethical way.

5. Demonstrate communication, leadership and team work skills particularly in relating scientific and technical information through both written and oral presentations.

6. Apply physics principles to novel situations, both in the classroom and in research settings, through critical thinking, problem solving, mathematical and computer modelling, and laboratory experimentation.

7. Manage effectively the rigor and discipline it takes to be a good scientist with efficient time management and appropriate use of resources.

8. Apply their physics experience and knowledge to explore opportunities in entrepreneurship world.
