  • Objectives
    The four-year Bachelor of Science (Honours) programs in Applied Physics and in Physics (either in the Experimental or Theory stream) each require 20.0 credits to complete. These degrees prepare you for a physics career in the industrial sector or for further studies in pure or applied physics at the graduate level. These three B.Sc. Honours programs start from a common first year in which you will take introductory Physics, another experimental science, Mathematics, Computer Science, as well as a selection from the Humanities or Social Sciences. In subsequent years there is also a common core to which the Applied Physics program adds additional courses in computing and electronics, while the Physics (Theory) program enhances the number of Mathematics courses. In the fourth year of the program, you will undertake a major individual project, done under the supervision of a faculty member.
