Description

Why study Physics at Dundee?

The Dundee Physics degree includes flexibility with the study of essential core topics to give you firm foundations in the subject.

We teach you:

  • relativity,
  • mechanics,
  • electro-magnetism,
  • quantum mechanics,
  • particle physics,
  • astronomy,
  • cosmology
  • optoelectronics,
  • plus we develop your programming skills via modules in computational physics.

Research-led teaching

Our current staff are working in some of the most exciting areas of cutting-edge physics. Many such areas are also those earmarked by the government as the critical scientific topics for the future: renewable energy and the environment; robust sensors; and physics applied to medicine and biology. …

Research-led teaching

Our current staff are working in some of the most exciting areas of cutting-edge physics. Many such areas are also those earmarked by the government as the critical scientific topics for the future: renewable energy and the environment; robust sensors; and physics applied to medicine and biology. To that end we use the most powerful microscopes available, each capable of resolving individual atoms, to characterise and develop materials such as the next generation of energy efficient solar cells.

We explore the boundaries of biophysics and laser science, especially in medical contexts where the University of Dundee as a whole boasts a world renowned reputation. Biophysics research is undertaken at state-of-the-art facilities within the University's Institute for Medical Science and Technology and also at Ninewells Hospital.

You can get directly involved in active research groups in Level 1: a fast-track route to applying the knowledge and skills that we will teach you.

MSci degree

In addition to the traditional four-year BSc Honours and joint Honours degree programmes, we also offer the new professional degree, the five-year MSci.

David Bajek is in his final year of BSc (Hons) Physics. "This course is for those who enjoy problem solving, but more importantly who have a natural inquisitive curiosity for how the universe works!" he says, "there are plenty of excellent and empathetic staff members here, so you feel welcomed, unique, appreciated, and important from the first day of first year until graduation comes around."
