Why study Physics?
Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world. Physics plays a pivotal role in the education of and support for other disciplines, including agriculture, biology, chemistry, engineering and medicine. It also lead to careers in astrophysics and cosmology, geophysics, laser science and photonics, condensed matter physics and theoretical physics. The postgraduate coursework program in physics is designed for students who have substantial background at the undergraduate level and offers the opportunity to carry out research projects with nationally and internationally recognised staff in various research centres such as the Centre for Biophotonics and Laser Science, the Centres of Excellence for Quantum Computer Technology and Quantum-Atom Optics, the Centre for Hypersonics and the Centre for Mathematical Physics.
