BSc (Hons) in Physics
(Optional Minor: Astrophysics/Biology/Chemistry/Instrumentation/ Mathematics/Renewable Energy)
One of the most important concepts in physics is that, behind the apparent complexity of the world around us, nature has an underlying simplicity and unity which can be expressed in terms of allembracing fundamental principles and laws. As well as being concerned with such fundamental questions, physics is a widely applicable subject and forms the basis of much of modern and, more importantly, future technologies. Moreover, the distinction between certain traditional branches of other disciplines and physics is rapidly fading out, resulting in an increasing number of employment opportunities in technical areas requiring expertise at the interface of physics and these disciplines.
Our BSc (Hons) degree programme has been developed to provide a solid grounding in physics as a fundamental discipline while providing a secure foundation to a wide range of careers. To enhance accessibility to the various existing and probable future career opportunities, apart from modules in core areas of physics, we also offer a variety of electives in applied and theoretical areas of physics as well as in other optional scientific disciplines. Overall, our programme combines the study of a fundamental discipline with the opportunity to develop skills in experimental and theoretical methods of problem solving.
Depending on their specific interests and aptitudes, our graduates may opt for traditional careers like teaching or for jobs in technical areas of research and development in industry, laboratories and universities. The analytical and problem solving skills of physicists are also appreciated worldwide in areas like computing and even in areas like management, finance and law. In addition, our programme offers the appropriate background for specialisation through further studies, or research at postgraduate level, both locally and overseas. Some of our successful graduates have pursued further studies in Physics, Computer Applications, Medical Physics and PhDs in Solid State Physics, Radio Astronomy (related to the Mauritius Radio Telescope), High Energy Physics, Computational Physics and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
