What will I learn?

**Overview**Advances in physics lead to new technologies that change our world and forge a path to a brighter future.Quantum theory (the study of the subatomic) and the theory of relativity (that space and time are connected) challenge our imaginations. On this physics degree course, you'll uncover an amazing world that lies beyond what we can see. You'll learn to question the impossible and develop the confidence to push against the boundaries of what we think we know.You'll have the opportunity to study topics including health physics, the fabrication of new bulk and nano-materials, and the application of fundamental quantum effects in the development of quantum information processes. You’ll graduate with strong mathematical, analytical, problem-solving and computational abilities that are in high demand.**BSc or MPhys?**You can study this course as a 3-year Bachelor's degree (BSc) or a 4-year integrated Master's degree (MPhys). **Course highlights**- See physics theory in practice through visits to companies such as BAE Systems, Airbus, QinetiQ, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and others- Benefit from our links to industry through the Portsmouth Physics Industry Advisory Board, a collection of professionals in relevant industries who help shape our course content, identify the skills employers want, teach on modules and offer placements- Have the chance to do an industrial-based research project under supervision of a leading physicist, such as researching physics for a defence company, working in radar for BAE Systems, or data engineering within the finance sector- Attend a programme of guest lectures on topics such as material sciences and quantum technology hosted by industry experts, including speakers from the medical physics department at Queen Alexandra Hospital- Investigate new technologies and theories alongside the University's physics research teams (and contribute to their work in your final project), whose research was ranked in the top 10 nationally for quality of research outputs- Use advanced technical equipment with the help of expert technical staff, including x-ray diffraction, x-ray fluorescence, electron and atomic force microscopes, various types of spectroscopy and the SCIAMA supercomputer**Accreditation**This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics.As a supporter of the Institute of Physics Project Juno, we're committed to addressing the under-representation of women in physics and gender equality in higher education and research.**Careers and opportunities**This physics degree will give you strong mathematical, analytical, problem-solving and computational abilities that are in high demand in sectors like financial services, aerospace development and publishing. Physics graduates are earning an average of £33,500 5 years after graduation, while the UK government puts your earning potential as high as £50,000.After the course you could also continue your studies to a PhD or other postgraduate qualification. Graduate destinationsOur graduates have worked for companies such as:- Burohappold Engineering- Tesla Engineering Ltd- British TelecomWhat jobs can you do with a physics degree?Our graduates now work in roles including:- data analyst- software engineer- project engineer- health physicist- physics researcher in defense sectorWhatever your career choice, our Careers and Employability service will help you to get where you want to be in your desired career. You'll get advice and support for up to 5 years after you leave the University, to ensure you get the most out of your burgeoning post-academic career.**This course has a subject classification which requires students whose nationality is outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland to have an ATAS certificate, irrespective of count
