Physics and Astronomy

This page is up to date 23.12.19

The physics curriculum broadly covers both classical and quantum physics. Third year students are introduced to current research in condensed matter physics, particle physics, astrophysics, and applied physics.

 

Undergraduate Programs:

  • Physics (Track 100) B.Sc. – sm (0321)
  • Physics with Extended Complementary Studies in Neuroscience - B.Sc.-  sm (0321.1521)
  • Combined Mathematics and Physics program – B.Sc. (0323)
  • Combined Physics and Electrical Engineering – B.Sc. (0512.0321)
  • Physics and Computer Science B.Sc. – dm (0321.0368)
  • Physics with Extended Complementary Studies in Humanities (0321.0600)
  • Physics and Chemistry B.Sc. – dm  (0321.0351)
  • Physics Double Major with Geophysics and Planetary Science (0321.0341)
  • Physics with Extended Complementary Studies in Life Science (0321.0455)
  • Physics (B.Sc.) dm – and an additional major in any other Faculty (as dm) (0321.XXXX)

 

The goal of the program is to provide educational opportunities for top level students, and allow them to undertake research projects already during their undergraduate studies. These opportunities are provided primarily through special honors courses and seminars that are taken in addition to the regular curriculum, individual mentoring, research projects, and additional optional activities guided by faculty members in the School of Physics and Astronomy. The undergraduate research project may provide a basis for continued graduate research.

 

Physics (Track 100) (0321)

The program aims at giving students the basic knowledge necessary for a physicist as well as a broad overview of the different branches of modern physics. Nominal completion time for the undergraduate program is three years.

 

Physics with Extended Complementary Studies in Neuroscience - B.Sc.-  sm (0321.1521)

This program is intended for students who are interested in the physical aspects of brain science. It gives a strong background in physics as well as the fundamentals of brain science. An undergraduate degree in this program with adequate grades allows the graduates of this program to enroll in graduate studies in either of the two subjects without extra classes.

 

Combined Mathematics – Physics Program (0323)

This program is for students who wish to major in both physics and mathematics. An undergraduate degree in this program with adequate grades allows its graduates to enroll for graduate studies in either of the two subjects.

 

A first year student with high academic achievements, in either 0321 or 0323 will be eligible to apply for transfer to the double major program in Physics and Computer Science.

 

Combined Physics – Electrical Engineering (0516)

This program is offered jointly by the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE).

 

Applicants must meet the acceptance requirements of both departments. The studies last four years. Upon graduation, the students get one certificate indicating completion of one degree: B.Sc. in Physics and EE. Students who wish to get two separate degrees and certificates (B.Sc. in Physics and B.Sc. in EE) must study an extra 12 credit hours.

 

Physics and Computer Science – dm (0321.0368)

Candidates must meet the admission requirements of both programs. Admission to studies in Computer Science is limited. See admission requirements to Computer Science.

 

Physics with Extended Complementary Studies in Humanities (0321.0600)

This program combines the Physics program with classes from the Faculty of Humanities, with the goal of teaching its graduates the fundamentals of Math and Physics that will allow them to work in all branches of Physics, together with the communicative and rhetoric capabilities that are required in Humanities studies. Graduates of this program may enroll in graduate studies in Physics without extra classes, but may be required to study "Introduction to Particles and Nuclei" or "Introduction to Astrophysics" if not elected during their B.Sc. studies.

 

Physics with Geophysics and Planetary Science (0321.0341)

This program is intended for students interested in both Physics and in Geosciences. It covers the main requirements of both departments, and as such, involves an increased study load.

 

Physics and Chemistry – dm (0321.0351)

This program is for students who wish to obtain broad education in both Physics and Chemistry. Applicants must meet the admission requirements of the School of Physics. A degree in this program with adequate grades allows its graduates to enroll in graduate studies in either Physics or Chemistry.

 

Physics with Extended Complementary Studies in Life Science (0321,0455)

This program is offered jointly by the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Faculty of Life sciences, for students who want to major in both subjects. An undergraduate degree in this program with adequate grades allows the student to enroll in graduate studies in either of the two fields.

 

Physics (B.Sc.) dm – together with an additional major in any other Faculty (as dm) (0321.XXXX)

This program offers the option to combine studies in Physics with any other program from another faculty (as dm). Candidates must meet the admission requirements of both programs.
