    Programme Description

    If you are interested in why things happen in the physical world, or how things work, then Physics Technology may be for you. It underpins most modern technologies and holds a key to improving all our futures. Physicists design experiments to test or apply new ideas in order to better understand the physical world or to improve the quality of life. For instance, it is the work of physical scientists, which has led to the development of our modern electronics, information, computing and medical and energy technologies.

    It´s not necessary to have studied physics in order to do this degree, although obviously you need to have an interest in science/technology. All of the Physics in Year 1 and much of it in Year 2 is learned using the exciting method of problem solving in groups called Problem Based Learning. This learning style allows students to develop additional problem solving skills much sought after by industry: adaptability, teamwork, and leadership and communication skills. In this approach students begin to develop research skills from the very start of first year.

    DT222 Physics Technology, is an accredited programme of the Institute of Physics (IOP). The IOP aims to award a valuable Bursary to one or more students of this programme. All fi rst year students in DT222 Physics Technology are eligible to apply for this Bursary.
