Overview

Bachelor of Science (Honours) - Physics

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Physics provides a basic foundation in biology, chemistry, mathematics, computer science and a solid education in classical and modern physics.

The program meets the rapidly increasing demand for graduates with knowledge and skills in technology-oriented fields such as energy, materials science, microelectronics, health, photonics and communication technologies and astrophysics.

The Physics program offers optional specializations in Astrophysics, and Nanotechnology and Clean Energy.

The Faculty of Business and Information Technology offers a Finance minor specifically for students in Physics.

 

Astrophysics

You will explore the current state of knowledge in astrophysics, examine new and emerging theories, and utilize modern techniques to analyze and solve problems in astronomy and astrophysics. 

Students in the Astrophysics specialization develop extensive knowledge in physics and math, as well as strong analytical and computational skills. 

This specialization will prepare you for graduate work and a wide variety of career options in astronomy and physics.

Nanotechnology and Clean Energy

This specialization is designed to meet the urgent demand for graduates with the knowledge and skills to address global issues of escalating energy consumption and declining resources. 

It emphasizes alternative and conventional energy, with a particular focus on the application of nanotechnology to developing clean energy solutions.

 

Double major

The Faculty of Science offers separate Honours Bachelor of Science degrees in Applied and Industrial Mathematics and in Physics. 

Students with interest in both disciplines may wish to complete the academic requirements of both programs and be awarded a single degree, Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Applied and Industrial Mathematics and Physics. 

Eligibility requirements and academic information can be obtained from the academic advisor.

 

Science and Management

If you are interested in managerial and leadership roles, consider applying for the five-year Bachelor of Science and Management (Honours) program in your upper years of study. 

Graduates gain a solid foundation in the key functional areas of business and management, including finance, accounting, operations, project management and marketing.

There is a wealth of opportunities for science graduates in industry, government, and in areas of applied science. 

The combination of a science degree and business and management education will give an added advantage to graduates in establishing careers within these practical fields.
