Course outline

Physics reveals the natural laws at work in our everyday world and across the cosmos, and teaches us the fundamental principles underpinning modern science and technology. This program broadens and deepens students’ scientific knowledge and skills. Courses will survey classical and modern physics, enabling development of professional knowledge and skills in optics, photonics, modern physics and quantum mechanics. Students will apply physics in different areas including astronomical and space sciences, obtain research project experience, and graduate with widely useful scientific, numerical and critical analysis skills. Students may access USQ’s Mt Kent Observatory near Toowoomba, solar UV monitoring equipment at the USQ Toowoomba campus, and a remotely accessible High-Performance Computing cluster in order to support advanced student research training.
