Physics is the branch of science that deals with the structure of matter and how the fundamental constituents of the universe interact. It is based on experiments, measurements and mathematical analysis with the purpose of finding quantitative physical laws.

Many of the everyday technological inventions that we now take for granted resulted from discoveries in physics. The basic laws in physics are universal, but physics in our time is such a vast field that many subfields are almost regarded as separate sciences.


Careers in Physics

Physics graduates have skills that are in high demand in diverse sectors. These include skills relating to numeracy, problem-solving, data analysis and the communication of complex ideas, as well as a wider understanding of how the world works on a scientific and human level. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics, graduates can pursue careers in teaching secondary schools and higher level institutions, research and development in science, teaching, medicine (medicinal physics), and as a physical sciences technician.
