About The Course
Physics examines the world around us at the most fundamental level, from the origin and fate of the universe, to the behaviour of matter on sub-atomic length scales, and everything in between. The overarching objective of the Physics major at The University of Western Australia is to provide you with access to the frontiers of modern physics via an emphasis on essential mathematical skills.
The knowledge generated through the study of physics is the driving force behind most new technologies, from radars to lasers, transistors to quantum computers and electron microscopes to advanced medical imaging scanners. To complement your lectures, you'll have the chance to discuss, apply and expand on the theory of your unit in weekly practical laboratory classes and structured tutorials.
The Physics major from The University of Western Australia opens doors to many career choices. As a Physics graduate, your strong problem-solving and critical thinking abilities will be in demand from employers in industry, government and the business and finance sectors. Your discipline-specific skills are particularly valued in teaching, research and high-tech industries. Graduates with a strong mathematics and physics background have opportunities in the resources sector modelling big data sets. Further studies will lead to careers in research or academia.
