# Second and third year students

The undergraduate subjects in the School of Physics form a study of the world at its most profound level. These subjects afford students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the foundations and methodology of physics through both theoretical and experimental studies. Students completing studies in physics will be able to:

- Explain fundamental phenomena in a wide range of areas including classical and quantum mechanics, thermal and statistical physics, astrophysics, optics, nuclear and particle physics and electronics
- Solve problems in these areas using mathematical and computational methods and analyse and interpret the results
- Demonstrate an understanding of a wide variety of advanced experimental techniques
- Acquire and analyse experimental data
- Write and evaluate scientific and technical reports
- Plan effective work schedules and manage their time to meet the deadlines for submission of assessable work and prepare for tests and examinations
