MQA Certificate of Accreditation (MQA/FA0724             

Bachelor of Science (Applied Physics) with Honours 

This program runs for a minimum of 4 years (8 semesters) under the Department of Physics and Chemistry. Students in the B.Sc (Applied Physics) program must pass with a minimum of 134 credits to graduate. The curriculum for the Bachelor of Science (Applied Physics) ensures a fundamental background through departmental core courses and advanced study in an area of concentration that includes required subjects and restricted electives. Students are also required to take laboratory courses, to complete an independent research project and industrial training as part of the degree requirements.

All lecture-based modules are supported by problem-solving classes, mathematical methods and laboratory work. The emphasis is on core physics, mathematics, and practical skills. 

Core Courses:

Mechanic Physics, Laboratory Physics I, II, III, and IV, Calculus, Vibration and Waves, Ordinary Differential Equations, Electronic I and II, Mathematical Physics, Thermodynamics, Modern Physics, Statistics, Java Programming, Quantum Physics, Atomic and Nuclear Physics, Solid State Physics, Electromagnetism, Statistical Physics, Semiconductor, Finite Element Model, Material Science, Environmental Physics, Computer Interfacing, Final Year Project I&II and Industrial Training.

Elective Courses:

  • Material Science: Nanostructured Material, Surface Physics, MEMS, Superconductor, Material Analysis and Characterization, Material Testing and Evaluation, Physics Lab V
  • Photonics: Electronic Testing and Maintenance, Sensor and Transducer, Laser Technology, Signal Processing, Optoelectronics, Fibre Optics, Physics Lab V
  • Health Physics:  Human Anatomy and Physiology, Radiation Detection and Dosimetry, Radiation Biophysics, Physics of Diagnostic Radiology, Physics of Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine, Medical Instrumentation, Physics Lab V. 

Career Opportunities:

  • Scientist, Academician, Medical Physicist, Operational Researcher, Radiation Practitioner, Meteorologist, Material Scientist, Engineers (Failure analysis, Software, QA, Design, Production Test, Process, Optical, Sales and Support).

    For those who do not wish to pursue a career directly related to their degree, some options are: Science Writer, Technical Author, Chartered Accountant, Patent Attorney, IT Consultant, Air Traffic Controller, Entrepreneur, Insurance Executive
