Physics - University of Salford

**Physics underpins everyday life, from the structure of the universe to the smartphone in your hand. A Physics degree with Salford will put you in position to discover the next scientific breakthroughs and technological innovations.** Physics is at the heart of modern life. By having the knowledge to discover future technological advances and find applications for scientific discoveries, qualified physicist are driving our future. Our professionally-accredited course is structured to provide you with fundamental and specialist knowledge base ready to build a career in teaching, research or industry. Accredited by the Institute of Physics, you’ll follow a three-year programme – or four with integrated Masters – delivered through engaging lectures, tutorial classes and laboratory classes. Physics can be challenging, so we place great emphasis on small group teaching to make you feel fully supported. You’ll have an immersive experience, taking part in group projects to develop team working, problem solving, and communication and presentation skills. Due to the analytical and problem solving nature of physics, this degree will open up the subject spectrum. You’ll develop an understanding of classical and quantum waves, and properties of matter. You’ll gain advanced knowledge in fields of nuclear and particle physics, Maxwell’s equation and quantum mechanics. You can also choose optional modules in acoustics or nanotechnology. Learning takes places in our Peel Park campus, minutes from bustling Manchester, a thriving hub recently voted the most liveable city in the UK.* A unique part of our physics degree is our emphasis on employer engagement. We consulted professional physicists from industry when we designed this course to ensure that the content is robust and will prepare you for the world of work. As a Salford physics graduate, you will have the skills to take you into a successful, exciting career. **Features** - Expand your knowledge and understanding in quantum mechanics of atoms, molecules and solids - Build analytical, numerical and computer-based problem-solving skills in Maxwell’s Equations and Wave Optics - Explore classical dynamics, static and dynamic charges, quantum mechanics, fundamentals of relativity and atomic and nuclear physics - Learn the importance of mathematics in a quantitative description of physics, using symbolic computing and programming - Experience computer laboratory sessions to apply numerical methods and techniques frequently encountered in physical and engineering challenges *The Economist’s Global Liveability Index 2018
