Physics

Core concepts include dynamics, electromagnetic fields and optics, the quantum world of subatomic particles and the philosophically challenging ideas of astrophysics. Mathematics is integral to students' understanding of physical concepts in depth. Options available in later years include Laser Physics, Photonics, Semiconductor Physics, Instrumentation, Nuclear Physics and Elementary Particles. Research projects allow students to develop skills in experimental design or computational modelling.
