Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) (Physics)
Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Spend significant time doing lab experimental work and undertake research throughout your studies. Study options include lasers and optics, nanotechnology, medical physics, astrophysics and more. In this new, embedded honours specialised course, you can expect to study alongside a small cohort of high-achieving fellow science enthusiasts for four years. You'll be immersed in real-world research from your first year in authentic research environments, with leading QUT researchers and projects.Physics deals with the natural laws and processes, and the states and properties of matter, energy, space and time. Physics also underlies many of the recent advances in information technology, medicine and biotechnology. Areas of specialisation include mechanics, electromagnetism, lasers and optics, medical physics, computational physics, nuclear and radiation physics, astronomy and astrophysics, thermodynamics, nanotechnology, quantum mechanics and relativity. Physicists are involved in finding solutions to challenges facing our world, including developing instruments for environmental monitoring, computer models for climate change prediction, and developing solar and renewable energy systems. Physicists are also attempting to address the world’s ever-increasing appetite for information and information processing by undertaking research into quantum computers, nanotechnology, lasers and photonics.
