The Baccalaureate program focuses on demonstrating a general working knowledge of the basic areas of Physics and applies formal knowledge in a problem-solving environment. It instills proficiency in basic laboratory skills (e.g. instrumental analysis and laboratory safety) and enables students to formulate effective strategies for solving scientific problems.
BS (Hons) Physics
The department is a part of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and offers a rigorous program that equips students with the knowledge and skills required for their academic and professional careers. It teaches students to efficiently use library resources and technology to gather information, read, understand and communicate scientific information clearly and precisely, both orally and in writing.
Students are able to analyze the broader implications of physics related experimentation and application processes (e.g., resource management, economic factors, and ecological considerations); work effectively with others as part of a team to solve scientific problems and describe the opportunities in, and requirements for, careers available to those with training in physics.
