Physics is the fundamental study of matter and space and their interactions and evolution in time, while engineering is the application of this knowledge to meet human needs in science and technology. This challenging double degree provides a unique combination of a theoretical, quantitative scientific discipline with a practical, highly applied discipline.
You will explore subjects in astronomy, physics, and mathematics, along with data acquisition, analysis and modelling techniques. You'll also undertake a physics research project under the supervision of a research group. Specialist areas of study include radio astronomy, marine science and technology, and satellite and remote sensing.
In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.
The final two years are devoted to electrical and communication engineering. You will study analogue and digital communication systems, information processing, telecommunications and computer communication networks, signal and image processing, control and instrumentation, as well as electronic design.
The course will help you develop a full spectrum of skills, from the theoretical, conceptual and problem-solving skills required in the study of physics, right through to project management and real-world applications gained in the study of engineering.
